First Aid Distance Learning Course with Colin Fordham in Conjunction with YFH – Final Enrolment Date

March 12 @ 8:00 pm

It is considered ‘best practice’ is that all yoga and pilates teachers should hold a current EFAAW certificate.

As you all will know arranging and/or attending a First Aid Course in these ‘Covid’ restricted times, is more than a little difficult and many face to face courses have been cancelled as they cannot provide the necessary ‘Covid’ safety requirements.

BWY and other Yoga Organisations have extended the ‘grace period’ for renewing First Aid certification while we are still subject to the uncertainties related to the Covid-19 restrictions and suggest the option of an on-line ‘refresher’ course giving an extension of certification for one year.

Colin Fordham a long established first aid trainer and BWY yoga tutor has compiled a very comprehensive Distance Learning Course with a written manual teaching booklet that participants are able to complete at home, complete a certificate and then keep the manual for future reference.

This Distance Learning course certificate is valid for one year. While the Emergency First Aid at Work course is considered to be best practice, either an online or distance learning course may be considered as adequate training during the months that face to face courses may not be possible. However, we suggest that you check with your insurers.”

When restrictions are lifted Colin will offer follow up face to face sessions (duration of 2 hours maximum) giving the resuscitation/bandaging etc side of things which will validate the course for the usual 3 years.

Colin is offering this course to Friends of Yoga for Harmony for £40 with a further £25 payment for the face to face part if it becomes possible in due course.

We offer this as a ‘multi-participant course’ and the final date for enrolment will being Friday 12th March 2021. AFTER THAT DATE THE MANUALS WILL BE POSTED OUT TO ALL PARTICIPANTS. You will then have 4 weeks to complete and return a downloadable ‘Declaration of Completion’. The manual should take no longer than 4 hours. You can enrol at any time before 8pm on 12th March to secure your manual.

Cost: £40
