Mental Health First Aid Training during Covid-19

We are following the latest Government guidance

We will be adhering strictly to the advice of Public Health England and the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).

How we’re making training safe for you and your delegates

We will be implementing the following measures to keep your delegates and our trainers safe:

  • If a delegate has any of the symptoms of COVID-19(e.g. new persistent cough, high temperature, loss or change to sense of smell or taste) they must not attend training. We will provide a free transfer to a future course
  • We will implement social distancing measures between everyone at all times during the course and request the same of delegates during breaks. To do this we have reduced class sizes dependent on the size of the room
  • We have altered our training strategies to ensure that trainers and delegates don’t touch and remain socially distanced during practical sessions
  • Face-coverings will not be provided but delegates are welcome to wear their own should they wish.
