Training during the Pandemic

We at Vanguard training will ensure that when training takes place, we will implement and enforce all measures advised by UK Government, HSE, UKRC and any other regulating authority. Please see the guidance offered by our Awarding Organisation below:

Where training takes place, the following guidance will be followed:

  • Vanguard Training will risk assess their training delivery and mitigate all risks of possible spread of COVID-19.

  • Vanguard Training will design lessons to ensure that there is no close contact between learners and or trainers, and a 2m distance is always maintained. Sensible adaptions to training and assessment activities will be introduced to achieve this.

  • Vanguard Training will ensure appropriate handwashing facilities and alcohol hand sanitisers are available for use as learners enter and exit the training room and throughout their time in the classroom.

  • Vanguard Training will have in place a process for preventing those with possible COVID-19 symptoms (fever, a new cough or loss of smell/taste) from entering the classroom. We will also have in place a process to manage instances of people who develop symptoms during the delivery of any training.

  • Vanguard Training will have a process in place to be notified, then ‘track and trace’ other learners if someone on the course develops symptoms within 2 weeks of attending first aid training.

  • All equipment that is used by learners will be allocated to that learner only for the duration of the course and thoroughly cleaned before/after use by an individual learner.

  • The first aid taught will reflect protocols that ensure the safe performance of first aid during the current COVID-19 outbreak that is supported by a body of medical opinion and the Resuscitation Council UK. This will still include the teaching of rescue breaths.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding how our training will take place.
