The Health and Safety Department have restarted face to face first aid training courses. Staff requiring requalification training will be contacted directly with a course date near to when their current certificate expires. In addition we have launched a self assessment tool on LEARN, this is intended as a resource for University of Edinburgh First Aiders, to help to maintain their knowledge and keep their skills up to date.
