Our staff are all from an operational, front-line working background within the security industry, military and emergency services. Because of this extensive background, we have tried and tested these techniques in real working environments. Additionally, our instructors have a great deal of knowledge and experience in First Aid at Work situations and will pass on that knowledge using real world examples and scenarios to reinforce your confidence in these techniques.

During the course we will continually assess you. As a result, further instruction will be provided where needed. At the end of the course you will have a written exam. Additionally we will put you through a final exercise, where we will test all the skills you have learnt over the last 3 days. Upon completing these assessments, you will be given your results. After that, your results will be sent off for certification. If you have passed, you will receive your Level 3 First Aid at Work certificate. If a student is struggling with any aspect of the course, we will be there to assist in your understanding.

We work with you to help you work safely.
