Has the practical assessment changed through Covid 19

Asked by Course Participant

Covid 19 has had an impact on everyone and people are understandably concerned about doing first aid courses at this time.  Has the way in which we assess the practical skills changed?  Do we still assess rescue breaths?  Yes we do assess rescue breaths in accordance with the requirements of the Awarding Body, Qualsafe.  Every effort is taken to ensure we protect from the risk of covid 19 as far as possible.  We complete a risk assessment on arrival and then provide with appropriate equipment to reduce the risk further.
