Available First Aid training.

 

If you are an employer and require your staff training, contact us for our competitive on-site training.

 

You may be aware that the Health and Safety Executive are stepping aside from the regulation of first aid training. They are still monitoring first aid in the workplace and state "the HSE will continue to undertake reactive investigation visits where issues emerge or complaints are received."  

 

 

To be a recognised and qualified First Aider, candidates must be trained by a fully qualified trainer/assessor.  Our training is recognised by Ofqual and the Quality Control Framework. 

 

Our courses are designed for business employee's as well as the general public.  We can also add a 'free' 45 minutes Dementia Friends course onto all our courses.

 

Students are issued with a reference manual for all our courses.
