Please note that the HSE has offered a further extension to the validity of First Aid certificates in England to 30th September 2020. This is for certificates expiring on or after the 16th March 2020. The exact dates for Wales and Scotland are yet to be decided but an extension until at least the 30th September will be offered. Please see latest announcements on the HSE link above (this is for First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at Work only). Anyone taking advantage of this extension should be able to describe clearly their reasons for delaying re-qualification training, and demonstrate steps they have taken to undertake the training required.
