Here we share an important update from the First Aid Awarding Organisation Forum (FAAOF) and our awarding body Qualsafe Awards about the delivery of First Aid training and education in England.


On 21 May 2020, the FAAOF recommended that first aid training (other than absolutely essential first aid training) should not restart until after the government has changed the COVID-19 alert status to Level 3.

Training must only take place where this is permissible in accordance with the UK Government and devolved administrations or regional restrictions.

Where training takes place, we have regulated guidance  to must be followed. Please contact us for details on 01242 371 999 to support current adjustments in mitigating all risks of possible spread of COVID-19.

From the HSE in respect of first aid cover and qualifications during coronavirus outbreak.

Further to the HSE statement on 16th March regarding extension of existing qualifications. In summary for First Aid qualifications the extension period has been granted to the 30th September in England for those needing annual refresher training. If first aiders are unable to access training face to face during covid-19, HSE supports the use of online refresher training to help keep their skills up to date.

It is important to note that the HSE still strongly recommends practical elements of actual first aid at work in urgency first aid at work and re qualification courses are delivered face-to-face so that the competency of the student can be properly assessed.

    5 star review  A genuinely lovely company. Very concerned for their clients' happiness and satisfaction. Very professional and organised everything beautifully. The trainers were AMAZING. Really bright and knowledgeable, able to respond to questions, kind, funny, friendly and approachable. Training can sometimes feel only partially useful, but this all felt like things we needed and would use, presented thoughtfully and clearly by brilliant trainers. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tidal and will certainly use them again. Thank you!

  • 5 star review  I attended my first course yesterday and what a wonderfully empowering experience it was. The highly trained paramedic teaching put us at ease straight away and I am looking forward to learning more of these invaluable skills. Lovely staff and great communication too. I will be recommending these courses to everyone - thank you.

    5 star review  Brilliant course! Amazing to be able to practice CPR with a live link to assessment software. Now I know my skills are going to be effective if ever needed. Very reassuring to have my own CPR dummy for the duration of the course, and super confident of the safety protocols that Clare and the Tidal team have in place.

    5 star review  After attending this first aid training I was impressed with the amount of information that was covered in the day as well as being taught in such an engaging manor so the information was retained well. I especially liked that the trainer for the course was an active Paramedic and was able to relate the first aid training to real life scenarios and experiences and share stories which kept the course interesting and gave character to the course. Overall an enjoyable training course which has left me feeling confident in providing many forms of first aid, highly recommended.

  • 5 star review  BeSocial@theCentre have been using Tidal Training for our staff training needs for a couple of years now and we could not be more pleased with the service and quality of training that they provide. When we contact the office, the staff we speak to are very friendly and helpful – every query or issue we have is always dealt with professionally and efficiently – 100 % customer service satisfaction! The ‘Trainers’ who we have had the pleasure of meeting, either face-to-face or online, have always been fantastic. Very clear in their presentation, knowledgeable in their subject and have made learning enjoyable. Sitting through a dull training session certainly is not on the agenda with Tidal Training! The flexibility and understanding, that BeSocial@theCentre have experienced with Tidal Training during recent months, due to a change in Centre staff and then COVID-19 pressures, has be second to none. Both Clare and Colin have been fantastic in changing dates and fitting our staff members in to different sessions to fit our requirements – We can not thank them enough for their patience with us. Thank you to the whole team at Tidal Training – We will see you at our next session!
