Complaints Policy

Warwickshire First Aid Training is a progressive training organisation providing mandatory training to a range of organisations. We provide a range of First Aid, health and safety, food safety, education, and training, assessing qualifications through Qualifications Network.

At Warwickshire First Aid Training we are committed to providing high-quality training and qualifications, and to ensuring that equality of opportunity underpins all aspects of our work.

This policy relates to complaints that our customers, students, and suppliers may have about our organisation and sets out our formal procedure for dealing with such complaints.

It is important that all complaints are raised directly with Warwickshire First Aid Training.

Our complaints policy is a four-stage process, each process is detailed below, most complaints will be resolved to a satisfactory standard at stage one.

If the complaint is not resolved at stage one then it should be escalated to stage two and if not resolved again it should be escalated to stage three, finally if not resolved at the third stage the final stage should be used.

Stage one:

  • The complaint is raised directly with the trainer/assessor conducting the course, who will deal with the complaint at the time that it is raised.
