Well, we’ve had a call today as I write this from a candidate postponing their training as they are positive with Covid-19, and as restrictions lift it will still be an issue - particularly for those vulnerable members of our community. We would therefore ask our clients to help us in keeping all of our candidates and staff safe and well, healthy and happy over the coming months.

What Underwood Training is asking of candidates and their employers:

  • If you have Covid-19, please do not attend a course, but contact us at your earliest opportunity so that we can rearrange your training (we often have a waitlist for courses)
  • Please also do not attend if you have had a vomiting bug within 48 hours prior to commencement of training or any other heavy cold/flu like symptoms – again please contact us if this is the case 
  • If you have access to lateral flow tests, we suggest that candidates perform one before attending a training course

 What Underwood Training is continuing to do:

  • We will set the training room up for candidates to be as socially distanced as possible
  • We will continue to provide plenty of hand sanitiser
  • Over colder months, we recommend wearing face masks for training (unless exempt) as you will be attending courses with others outside of your normal social circle. As the weather warms up and people are happier to have windows wide open, we will relax this when in your own workstation. However, we will continue to recommend the wearing of 3-ply water resistant facemasks (which we will supply) when candidates are working in close proximity to each other for practical parts of our courses
  • We will continue with our stringent manikin hygiene procedures, and this will usually mean one manikin per learner during training delivery
  • Training bandages will continue to be hot-washed after each course
  • We are continuing with regular cleaning of touch points

If you have any concerns over attending training due to Covid-19 or any other issue, please do not hesitate to contact us at the office for a chat before attending your training.

We look forward to welcoming you to our courses.


Best wishes,



Helen Underwood

Director of Training
