When It Comes To First Aid Training We Are One Of The Best

When it comes to first aid training we are one of the best.

When it comes to first aid we believe in doing things right from the outset, this is one of the building blocks when Warwickshire First Aid Training was launched back in April 2016. Having over 25 years of experience in first aid training behind us gave us a unique understanding of what we needed to do and accomplish.

Our standards and procedures we have in place ensure everything is kept in check and our external IQA team constantly monitors this for our compliance and also our obligations to our awarding body Qualifications Network UK too.

Our first aid training team

Our first aid training team are all healthcare professionals with many years of experience and knowledge both on the frontline and also as first aid trainers and assessors. 

First aid training can be a very dry subject if delivered incorrectly and that is definitely not us we can assure you. Our training team knows how to make first aid training come alive and make it fun for our learners.

Our learners get to use the very best training aids to make it as real as possible, our manikins actually mimic a human body so making CPR more authentic for them. Not all training providers invest in their training equipment and that’s wrong for the learner too.

Each learner gets their very own training manikin for the duration of their course with us, not many providers do that one though.

Regulated training only

Another thing we did right from the outset was to deliver regulated training qualifications that are Ofqual regulated and accredited by an awarding organisation.

After much deliberation from over 140 awarding organisations we chose to work with Qualifications Network UK, they are known for their very high standards and also ensuring their approved centres maintain those high standards too through centre audits with their EQA (external quality assurance) teams.

We have been an approved centre since 2016 and our yearly audits by them and our unannounced external IQA audits have always been outstanding.

Here is a blog about the differences between Regulated first aid training and unregulated first aid training.

So what makes us different?

It is a fact that every one of us learns differently and that makes us all unique, that is why our first aid training reflects this so everyone gets an awesome learning experience with us. Our first aid training is fully inclusive of all genders, races, and abilities. It builds a great learning environment and makes group work much more fun for them and also for us too.

Our first aid trainers quickly recognise if a learner is starting to struggle and by giving them extra assistance and support to help them get back on track with their learning journey with us.

if you want to learn more about us and how we have built this business have a look at our about us page, here is a link.

Our feedback from our learners

When we conduct our first aid training we like to ask our students to give us an honest opinion on our feedback form whether it is good or bad. If it is bad then we will deal with it straight away. But in our 25+ years of experience, this has seldomly happened and at any time the learner can talk to the trainer if they have any concerns.

We have had learners telling us they now get it, whereas before their first aid course learning didn’t match their learning styles and they really struggled with it.

Recently another training provider was on the same site like us and by midmorning, that class wanted to join our classes because of all the laughter and fun our learners were having. You can read that blog here, we also got the training contract that day too

This really makes us really happy and gives us a beaming smile too.

Companies feedback

It’s always nice when we get feedback from companies we work with and many shout from the rooftops that they have had an awesome first aid training experience with us. Through this, we have been awarded some great contracts to deliver first aid training across their network. This too makes us really happy and gives us a big beaming smile too.

Conclusion

There are many first aid training providers out there, and there are some very good ones as well as really crap ones.

You need to do your due diligence on your proposed first aid training provider and really check them out and I mean check them out if they offer unregulated first aid training. Many don’t want to adhere to an awarding organisations standards or requirements and do not want IQA of EQA scrutiny either

Regulated training.

By choosing a first aid training provider who offers Ofqual certification on their courses. The HSE has stated that you do not need to go through their checklist as the training provider offers Ofqual regulated qualifications and thus the training provider has already completed the due diligence for you.

Unregulated training.

If you choose unregulated training it is the legal responsibility of the employer to carry out due diligence on the training company, the trainer, and also the proposed course too. Here is the checklist that you would need to follow.
