12 Jan Covid 19 and Training
We are continuing to train in Wales within the government guidelines because our customers can leave home for specific work purposes. This means that our trainers, and our delegates, are allowed to attend our courses as our training cannot be completed from home. This training saves lives in the workplace and eases the pressure on the NHS.

Where the training course includes practical training outside the classroom candidates are required to bring their own clean PPE, including a safety helmet, overalls, hand protection and eye protection. If this applies to the course you are attending you will receive full details in an email ahead of the course.
Will I have to wear a facemask and if so, do I need to provide my own?
This is mandatory to wear in practical exercises where it is not possible to achieve social distancing requirements. It may also be worn at other times if the candidate prefers.
How many people will be on the course with me?
We have undertaken a careful and detailed review of each course and wherever practicable larger training facilities have been provided together with reduced candidate numbers to ensure there is always a 2m distance (minimum) between candidates and between candidates and the trainer/assessor.
