I have completed a First Aid course in the past, do I need a new one?
On your certificate there will be an expiry date. If you are out of date you will need to complete the required First Aid course for your employer. If not, we suggest you complete a refresher course to polish up those old skills.
What happens if I cancel at the last moment?
Unfortunately unforeseen circumstances do prevent people from turning up. If less than 7 days notice to cancel is given, a full invoice will be sent to your employer.
I have not received my certificate?
We only send out certificates when payment from your employer has been received. If you have not received your certificate please contact your Line Manager.
