Facemasks are mandatory in Victoria for Melbourne and Mitchell Shire.
Our First Aid Classes have resumed as normal but we have put extra precautions in place to ensure the safety of our students. We socially distance each student, have reduced class sizes to abide by the governments 4 x 4 rule, provide hand sanitizer, masks and gloves, contactlessly take temperatures of each student as you enter to ensure no students are suffering possible symptoms, ask students to sign a declaration that they aren’t suffering symptoms, are meticulous with regards to both the hygiene of the venue and our equipment and have altered the practical class lessons to reduce any risk. All bandages are thrown away at the end of each class. Student safety is our number one priority.
Remember, if on the day of your practical class you had travelled overseas in the past 2 weeks, are feeling ill on the day or have come into contact with anyone who may be affected by COVID-19, or are currently in isolation or quarantine DO NOT go to your practical class. There will be no charge to switch or transfer classes. We’re all in this together.
We look forward to seeing you in class
