4 – How do I book a course to be ran at your headquarters in Maidenhead, Berkshire

Before booking please contact us and tell us you would like the course to be held at one our headquarters. We will let you know availability.

5 – What discounts do I get for having fewer than the maximum number of candidates

We do not discount courses that are not full as our Trainer is there for the session anyway and the administration overhead is very similar, however we can work with you to fill spare places if you wish – and you will receive a share of the income, thus lowering your net price.

6 – Can I have a course outside of ‘normal office hours’

Yes. Depending on where and when you want the course we always do our best to meet your requirements. There might be a slight extra fee if you require an overnight course for example.

7 – Can I have a course in ‘out of the way places’ like the Shetland Islands

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

8 – Can I have a course delivered on non-consecutive days, such as one evening per week

Yes. Depending on where and when the training is required, we can let you know the extra costs and what they will be. Please contact us for a no-obligation quotation.

9 – When do I have to pay for the course and do I have to pay a deposit?

As standard we do not require deposits. Courses have to be paid for in full before the course starts. Our invoices contain payment instructions and are sent by email. Please see our Booking Terms and Conditions for further details. There will be a charge if the course is postponed or cancelled.

10 – What if I need to cancel or postpone a course?

There will be a fee unless it is more than 1 month to the course. A lot of our Trainers are Freelance and if you cancel or postpone, they may not be able to find other work that day so will miss out on the income. The cancellation fee goes towards recompensing them.

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

We cannot change the prescribed content as set down by the awarding body the Health and Safety Executive etc. nor the minimum, course duration. if you want additional material covered, we can extend the course duration, however there will be an additional charge for this.

12 – How do I pay for my course?

We accept payment via cheque, BACS, credit and debit cards. Payment methods are listed on all invoices.

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. They lay down the standards for certain First Aid courses such as (Emergency) First Aid at Work
