The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) have announced an update (18th September 2020) to first aid qualification expiry dates for those who have been affected by COVID-19 and have been unable to requalify.
Originally the HSE stated that everyone who expired on or after the 16th March had until the 30th September 2020 to complete a requalification course. This has now been superseded by the statement below.
The HSE has announced that for England, Scotland and Wales (we expect the HSE Northern Ireland to follow suit shortly), all learners who expired on or after the 16th March 2020 will be given an extension until the 31st October 2020 or a 6 month extension on their current expiry date, whichever is the latest.
The HSE have stated that the 31st March 2021 is the latest possible date a qualification can be extended until so learners expiring in January 2021 will not get a full 6 month extension and will only be extended until the HSE deadline of the 31st March 2021.
