This depends on the course. It may be as little as £1 or over £100 depending on the amount of candidates you have on your course and other variables such as where the training is being held. Please contact us for a precise quote under no obligation to go ahead and book.

Yes, however this will involve additional fees for transport, accommodation etc.

-In the event of cancellation by you or members of your group, the full course fee is payable.
-For group bookings, where the course is cancelled with a minimum of 4 full weeks prior notice, no fee will be payable and any fee paid will be refunded. Where there is less than 4 weeks but more than 2 weeks prior notice, 50% of the fee will be payable/refundable. Where there is less than 2 weeks’ notice 100% of the fee is payable and no refundable.

11 – Can we adapt or bespoke a course such as the 3 day First Aid at Work (QCF Level 3) qualification

We cannot change the pre-prescribed content as set down by the awarding body the Health and Safety Executive etc.
We contextualise all courses as standard to reflect your requirements and working environments such as the scenarios you might face or specific injuries that cause you concern. If you have any specific concerns please let us know when you book.

12 – How do I pay for my course?

We accept payment via cheque, BACS and credit and debit cards. We do not accept cash or any non-standard payment method. NSFAT Limited never sees or has access to any payment or bank details.

13 – Who and what are Ofqual (QCF) and the SQA (SCQF)?

Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) for England and Wales and the SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority) are the qualifications authorities.

Ofqual and the SQA each hold their own register of qualifications, Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) for England and Wales and the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) for Scotland.

If a course is not on one of these registers then they are NOT formally accredited and nationally recognised qualifications.
