  • PPE including masks and gloves are now available at our classes for students to wear if they choose
  • Temperature screening will take place for all people entering our training venues
  • No contact disability first aid training and first aid training: this means students will not be required to practice first aid techniques on other students or staff, only on themselves or a manikin. For example bandaging, CPR, recovery position and use of EpiPens will not be conducted on others. Students will be directed not to breathe into a manikin at this time.
  • Increased cleaning of our equipment after each use
