Terms and Conditions

 

Standard terms and conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to all orders for the purchase of services from First Response First Aid Ltd.

First Response First Aid Ltd will be referred to as FRFA for these Terms and Conditions.

If you have any questions relating to these terms and conditions, please contact us by phone: 01543 372888 between Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm excluding bank and public holidays, or email: info@frfa.co.uk.

These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights.

Payment “Group Bookings”

Invoices will be sent 4 weeks before the course start date or at the same time as the booking if the booking falls within that period. Full payment is required before the course start date unless a credit agreement has been agreed in writing. (see certification below)

Cancellation by Client “Group Bookings”

Courses cancelled, by the client become liable for the following charges:

The number of days relates to working days Monday to Friday. Weekends are not included.

  • 15 days or more notice = £25 + VAT Admin fee
  • Between 10 and 15 days notice = 20% of the total cost
  • Between 5 and 10 days notice = 50% of the total cost
  • Between 48 hours and 5 days notice = 70% of the total cost
  • Less than 48 hours notice = Full amount payable

Payment “Open Courses”

Payments are required in full before the course start date. Depending on the account you have with FRFA you will either be required to pay at the time of booking, or you will be invoiced 4 weeks before the open course date and immediately if the booking falls within the 4 weeks. The payment is classed due from the invoice date as the invoice is for the reserved seat and not physical attendance. Note: During COVID-19, invoices are being intentionally delayed as FRFA doesn't want to get too far ahead, especially if the lockdown restrictions are strengthened. If you don't receive your invoice 4 weeks before please do not worry. 

Due to COVID-19, we have put in place many extra measures. One of these measures is managing the number of learners attending the scheduled open courses. Previously FRFA has been very flexible in cancelling and rescheduling learners attending scheduled open courses; however, to ensure FRFA can continue providing scheduled open courses, it will mean that the terms and conditions will be strictly adhered to. Please understand that when booking a place on a scheduled open course you are reserving the seat, therefore, if the learner does not attend, payment in full is still required for that reservation.

If you would like to set up a credit account, please get in touch to discuss the options.

Cancellation by Client “Open Courses”

Placements cancelled, by the client become liable for the following charges:

The number of days relates to working days Monday to Friday. Weekends are not included.

  • 10 days or more notice = £25 + VAT Admin fee
  • Less than 10 days notice = No refund

If a candidate fails to attend an open course, no refund is given. This also applies to candidates who do not complete the full course. If an open course is not completed, candidates would need to re-book onto the next available course, and full payment would be expected.

Transfer of Individuals on "Open Courses"

The client can transfer one or more Individuals from one Open Course to another, without incurring a charge, provided that FRFA receives this request to transfer at least 10 working days before the initial Open Course start date. Transfer requests less than 10 days would incur a £25 + VAT admin fee.

First Aid at Work Requalification Certification

It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that attendees attending a first aid at work requalification course hold proof of having a first aid at work certificate. If the certificate has passed its expiry date, it is the customer's responsibility to decide whether it is most appropriate for the attendee to attend the requalification course.

If FRFA issues a certificate to an attendee on successful completion of a requalification course and subsequently finds out that the attendee did not complete the initial first aid at work training, the requalification certificate will be invalid and downgraded to an Emergency First Aid at Work. This is regardless of the success of the attendee at the requalification course.

Certification

The certification shall not be issued until payment has been received.

Candidates must complete the full course to receive certification.

Candidates completing the First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at Work courses will receive First Response First Aid certification as proof of competence valid for 3 years. These courses are delivered; evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2013 and meets the requirements of the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
