Please ensure that all learners for whom you have current or suspended enrolments, and whom you intend to present for certification, are registered by the final registration date, even if you have yet to start the training. Please note that learners yet to undertake their training will have a limited timescale in which to complete their training and be successful in assessment, so you must advise them accordingly.

We'll continue to review and revise assessment papers and manuals up to the completion date of each qualification, so please make sure that you do not stockpile assessment papers. You should download live papers only, as using the wrong version of an assessment paper will invalidate the assessment result.

We have no plans at this moment in time to develop alternative provision in our own right to replace these qualifications.

If you wish to contact the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives, you'll find contact details on the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives website.

If you require more information or clarification on this withdrawal, please contact your account manager.
