Are your training qualifications up to date?
The rules for first aid trainers and assessors are changing. Just a final reminder that the guidance from the Health and Safety Executive and Skills for Health states that from 1st October 2015:
• First Aid Trainers must hold a formal, regulated teaching/training qualification
• First Aid Assessors must hold a formal regulated assessing qualification or have attended relevant CPD Training
• First Aid Internal Quality Assurers must hold a formal internal quality assurer qualification or have attended relevant CPD Training
If you still haven’t enrolled to gain one of these qualifications you will not be meeting HSE guidance after this date. WorkSafe are running the Level 3 Award in Education and Training which meets the guidance and provides an excellent base qualification for first aid trainers and assessors.
