How will distancing rules be followed during a practical classroom delivery?

See also “additional information” tab above. We are responsibly running this public classroom course with strict COVID secure training methods in place. We have worked hard to make sure you feel comfortable and enjoy the course despite social distancing and new non-contact ways to teach.

Whilst physical distancing rules remain in place, our f2f classroom courses are limited to a maximum of 12We have supersized our venues, which have ground floor windows and ample break out space. The venue for this course is not currently used by the public, and we have a QR code for track and trace.

We are now well versed in adapting the training to meet our strict risk assessment. (Masks are to be worn in the kitchen and corridor areas).

Group exercises are completed in separate rooms followed by feedback safely in the main hall.

What to expect and how to prepare for your classroom training.

Please complete day 1 online prior to the classroom practical. On arrival, you will be given a debrief. Hand sanitiser, training props, individual manikins, and everything you need for the course is provided. Come with an open mind and burning questions.

Our instructors are experienced in creating and facilitating a non-judgemental and entertaining learning environment. We encourage participants to take away this attitude into their own lives following the training. All learners are made to feel safe and included, and we often see the group bond as a result.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring some photo ID to day 2, as is required in order to validate this award.

You may wish to bring a notebook for any additional notes, and your first aid kit from your home or place of work. Some learners find it helpful to familiarise themselves with their own kit.

Covid-19 secure refreshments are complementary throughout the training, but we do ask you to bring your own favourite mug, and your lunch. There is ample fridge space and Budgens 1-mile, fast food outlets and supermarkets 2.5 miles. We have everything else covered.

We are also fully aware of the anxiety that many students have over coming into a public space. There is a lot to think about which we have already thought about. You are in safe hands.

Anything else? 

Your instructor will send you an e mail a couple of days prior to the classroom training, so that you have their contact details should you be running late, or have additional accessibility requirements.

This course can also be delivered on site at a reduced group fee (subject to our risk assessment)

I am so impressed. I just did my second course with this company and they are very professional yet approachable. The courses are well organised and access to extra materials is exceptional. They really help me to feel confident about first aid and I will definitely go back to them next time.

From start to finish the course was excellent!! The communication was clear and reassuring in the current circumstances. The online training resource is very informative and easy to use. The practical day was organised very well and I felt safe the whole day. The trainer was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to teach in different ways to work around Covid restrictions. Thank you!!

I attended the blended 16hr course to obtain my Outdoor First aid certificate. Jenny’s style is engaging and underpinned by her own real-world experience which I found both reassuring and engaging. She was able to dispense advice using first-hand accounts as well as delivering what the course syllabus requires for the qualification. The blended part of the course was useful as I was able to listen to other experiences from people who were in the practical session renewing qualifications that weren’t necessarily outdoor related. I would definitely recommend Jenny.

If you want a course that will give you the confidence to act in emergency this is for you. Not only will Jenny give you the tools to deal with a first aid situation, but most importantly for everyone, the determination to try. Gary
