COURSE ACCREDITATION

With the withdrawal of the Health and Safety Executive from the approval of first aid training we feel it is in our clients best interest to have an accredited award, thus we deliver all First Aid courses through the Awarding Body, Nuco Training.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO BE REASSESSED TO KEEP MY TRAINING VALID?

With the Emergency First Aid at Work qualification, there is a requirement to be retrained every 3 years. Additionally, the Health and Safety Executive ‘highly recommend’ that first aiders undergo an annual 3-hour refresher course.

Testimonial

"I did a two day outdoor first aid course led by Jason which was professional, fun and very practical. I now have a QNUK qualification.

Both Viv and Jason were friendly, professional and very welcoming. They clearly love the work they do and cheerfully go above and beyond the call of duty of their own volition. It was a pleasure to spend the weekend training with them."
