To qualify for the extension, you must be able to explain why you haven’t been able to requalify, demonstrate what steps you have taken to access the training, if asked to do so
Requalification training in England
The first aid training industry in England is confident that enough courses will now be available for all required requalification training to take place. The HSE has therefore agreed a final deadline for requalification for these qualifications of 30 September 2020
