Many disabled people can fulfil the role of First Aider. It's down to the employer to decide who to put on courses and for the training provider to train and issue a certificate if they are competent in first aid etc. And this all depends on what you call/classify as a disability. IE people from Norfolk (Normal for Norfolk)

If a disabled person can achieve the required standard and competencies, then yes they can have a certificate just like anyone else can.

If a disabled person cannot achieve the required standard and competencies (owing to their disability or not) then like anyone else unable to make the grade, they should not have a certificate.

It all comes down to are you happy giving someone a cert that says they can do X when perhaps for reasons of them being disabled, they cannot.
