The health and safety of our students is of vital importance to First Aid Course Experts. As such, we ensure all courses are run in a Covid-19 safe manner, with social distancing maintained during training and all equipment being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between sessions. For this reason, students must follow directions from their trainer in terms of social distancing, PPE and other Covid-19 safe measures, or they may be asked to leave.
You should note that many venues require patrons to be fully vaccinated against Covid 19 to be admitted. This is a requirement of the venue (generally according to a government directive) and not set or controlled by First Aid Course Experts.
Our HLTAID012 courses run for half a day, generally from 9:00am till 12:30pm, although this can vary – check the course calendar for specifics. Students should arrive at least 15 minutes early, as the doors will be sealed promptly at the start time, and latecomers asked to reschedule to another date.
Courses run throughout the week, with some weekend dates available as well.
