Course description

The Health and Safety Executive have extended all First Aid certificates that were due for expiry from 21st March 2020 to 30th September. We should point out that no further extensions are expected, so if you do not requalify before 30th September, you will need to take the full 3 day First Aid course to requalify as a First Aider.
