Welcome to JaLee First Aid Training
We are an ethical and reliable training provider offering a wide variety of first aid courses to suit businesses and individuals alike.
January 2021; The provision of First Aid qualifications can continue to be delivered in line with existing COVID-secure guidelines
HSE Update; 23/09/2020
Please note; HSE Statement regarding First Aid at Work & Emergency First Aid at Work
FAW or EFAW certificates that expired after 16 March 2020 can remain valid until 31 October 2020 or 6 months from date of expiry, whichever is later. All requalification training for these certificates should be completed by 31 March 2021.
To qualify for the extension, employers must be able to demonstrate that:
- they have made every effort to arrange requalification training as soon as possible and can explain in detail why they have not been able to do so. For example, they must show evidence that staff with expired certificates are booked on to EFAW or FAW requalification courses, if requested by an inspector
- they have adequate and appropriate equipment and facilities to give first aid to any employee who is injured or becomes ill at work
- the level of first aid cover provided remains appropriate for their particular work environment
- the level of first aid provision necessary in high risk settings is fully maintained, eg in construction, agriculture, engineering and chemicals
This guidance now applies to employers in England, Scotland and Wales.
Annual refresher training
If first aiders are unable to access annual refresher training face to face during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, HSE supports the use of online refresher training to keep their skills up to date.
HSE still strongly recommends that the practical elements of actual FAW, EFAW and requalification courses are delivered face to face, so that competency of the student can be properly assessed.
Please note; The Dept for Education Statement regarding Paediatric First Aid
If PFA certificate requalification training is prevented for reasons associated directly with the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, or by complying with related government advice, the validity of current certificates can be extended to 25 November 2020 at the latest. This applies to certificates expiring on or after 16 March 2020.
JaLee is up and running and delivering a full schedule of courses as well as in-house training. We have adjusted our teaching procedures to ensure safe, practical, and reassuring delivery at this time. Group sizes have been reduced so that we can observe social distancing and there is no sharing of equipment.
Customer feedback from recent courses;

JaLee has a proven Quality Assurance record. When established in Somerset in 2005 we were directly approved by the HSE and following the changes in 2013 (more info on HSE changes 2013) we can now offer Regulated Qualifications (RQF) and First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) certification. Because we are independent you can choose any course and qualification you wish.
Although we have the same training status as the large organisations, we are very different. We can provide more flexible and quality training whilst being easy on the budget! In addition we promise you an easy booking system and an excellent and personal customer service.
We have a large team of fully qualified and experienced professional trainers who provide hands on instruction in a fun and enjoyable way using up-to-date and hygienic equipment.
Come and join us on one of our scheduled courses in Somerset & Bristol or let us ‘tailor-make’ one to suit your own working environment. We realise that standard courses do not suit all businesses and our bespoke service is free!
In-House training can save you time and money! So why not host your own training and receive a substantial discount. Click here for details. We can come on-site in Somerset & Bristol plus Devon, Dorset and Gloucestershire. In fact anywhere we are invited!
We are privately owned and proud of our independence because it motivates us to care about every single thing that happens within our company and inspires us to constantly improve our service.
Most importantly, all our courses are evaluated by the students themselves. If requested, we will happily send copies of these to their Employer.
We look forward to hearing from you soon,
Julie & Lee
