We hope you are keeping safe and well.

We have had many calls and emails this week with regards to the interpretation of the recent Government changes and returning to First Aid training.

The HSE met with key stakeholders this week to discuss how and when to return to training and how to ensure there is adequate First Aid cover in the interim period.


The summary below is a statement from the meeting:

  • A productive meeting of the First Aid Quality Partnership took place on Wednesday the 13th May 2020.
  • HSE provided thoughts on first aid certificate extensions and the group provided feedback around the possible implications. HSE are now considering this feedback.
  • A discussion took place around the appropriate timing of phasing the return to first aid training, specifically in relation to guidance from each of the UK devolved governments.
  • Standardised agreement relating to infection prevention and control, including social distancing was also discussed.
  • Further scoping and consideration is taking place to enable more detailed information to be published next week from HSE and the First Aid Quality Partnership. We thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time.


So, there is no decision made by the HSE at this time, but we expect an update from them in the coming days, setting out a road map for the return of training once they have considered all options and consulted with appropriate stakeholders.

Nuco Training will await the statement from the HSE and will mirror this guidance across all qualifications.

We will of course keep you informed and will send out any update or changes immediately upon receipt.

If you have any questions or need any additional information then please do not hesitate to contact us.
