    This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £100.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.

    Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Who should attend?  People who work in lower-hazard environments or where HSE guidelines indicate staff should be trained and hold a certificate in emergency first aid at work.
