We can design and deliver bespoke first aid training courses for any purpose and to suit any requirement. This option is useful for clubs, or schools for special educational needs to big industries with very specific risk assessment requirements. We can design and deliver a course based on your needs and your candidates.
Sometimes an off-the-shelf course is not the best solution. For instance:-
In these cases a Bespoke course is the answer. We can tailor a course to your needs. Whilst we will always cover the essentials, the remaining time can be used to your advantage. A good starting point is our 3 hour Basic Life Support course which can then be extended to fit your requirements.
Typical additional topics can be Asthma, Anaphylaxis, Heart Conditions and so on.
You have two choices of Certificate depending upon the level of assessment that you need.
This is used when you have a mixed ability group and just want an awareness of skills with no obligation to participate. For example a Church Group that want some information but due to the age bracket would find it difficult to kneel down or lie down. Another reason might be a group larger than 12 where there is not the opportunity to assess everyone to competency standard. More topics can be covered with an Attendance Certificate compared to a Competence Certificate. Although the skills will last, the Certificate will only be valid for 1 year.
This is used where you require a competency certificate – e.g. a Sports Club – that is valid for 3 years. Class sizes are limited to 12 per trainer and each individual will be assessed on each skill. They need to be assessed and pass each skills to be certified as ‘competent’.
Our Instructors come from a range of professional and voluntary backgrounds such as:
We aim to match instructors to your specific training requirements. They are aware of the specific needs of various outdoor environments, fully understanding the problems and judgements that have to be made when dealing with incidents in stressful, dangerous and remote situations.
Our training is very practical and hands on. We do not rely upon the usual ‘death by PowerPoint’, instead we use progressive incident scenario based training methods. Our courses teach techniques proven to work in real life incidents and not just in a classroom. Our training builds confidence and develops first aid skills into complete incident management.
Often this will be Continuous Assessment but we can also provide Question papers and/or practical scenario exams.
The certificate will be valid for 1 or 3 years depending upon whether competence was assessed or not. All successful students will be issued with a Certificate that lists the main topics covered.
