National First Aid continues to act in line with advice from the relevant government departments and currently we remain open and continue to operate as normal, subject to constant review of federal and state policies.
First aid training courses are continuing with preventative health measures in place and strict social distancing rules of four-square metres per person. Click here for information on our precautionary measures.
To limit the spread of coronavirus, National First Aid advises the following:
- If you have had a fever or history of fever and acute respiratory infection with at least one of the following symptoms (shortness of breath, cough or sore throat) not to attend class until you are well.
- If you have returned from overseas in the last 14 days prior to your course date, you must not attend class.
- If you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you should stay at home and self-isolate and not attend class for at least 14 days after last contact with the infected individual/s.
- If you have been tested for COVID-19 or have been in contact with a case of the virus within 14 days after attending your course with National First Aid, please notify us immediately on 1300 099 297.
We encourage those who wish to rebook to contact us on 1300 099 297. Course can be rescheduled at no extra cost.
We are doing our part to contain the spread of the coronavirus and we ask all students to stay engaged with updates and take the necessary precautions to minimise the risk of exposure of COVID-19.
