All those who need to renew their three-year First Aid at Work Certificate and who need a two-day revision course, should let Sarah van Lottum know (sarah.van-lottum@festrail.co.uk).

Heads of Departments are invited to consider their departmental needs and arrange for additional members of staff to take the four-day course.

We have to arrange an appropriate number of instructors and examiners; we have to give a month's notice of the courses and obtain the books and paper work.
