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

During the course you will be continuously assessed and further instruction will be provided where needed. At the end of the course you will have a written exam and a final exercise, where all the skills you have learnt over the last 4 days are put to the test. Upon passing these, your results will be sent off for certification. If a delegate 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.
