Why choose First Aid Training Associates?

It’s critical for employers to know that all staff trained in First Aid have the skills they need and the confidence to put them into practice. So when choosing your First aid Training partner, you should consider:

The quality of the training courses

This course (presentation and content) was far superior to my last course with a large national organisation. Excellent!

We are a centre of Qualsafe Awards, an Ofqual Awarding Organisation, so you can be assured that our courses meet the most rigorous standards.

We are also approved by SMP (Service Medical Professionals), which is a voluntary accreditation scheme that has carried out the “due diligence” that employers have to undertake if the first aid course is not Ofqual registered.

The experience and quality of the trainers

Very good content and well delivered by experienced and skilful trainer. I am now aware and confident to deliver first aid.

We get very good feedback on the knowledge, experience, friendliness of our trainers (and this is monitored frequently). Also, we adopt a philosophy of explaining to students how the body reacts when things go wrong and why we do the things we do to help it. This approach, we are convinced, is a much better way of learning than to simply be told what to do. Check out the feedback to see how students feel about this approach.

Value for money first aid training

Our “in house” first aid courses are excellent value for money. If you have 12 people on a course, the cost per person is really cost effective – see our pricing schedule here.

Ofqual certification

Whilst we offer Ofqual certifications, these are registered through Qualsafe awards and they issue the certificates, which adds to the cost of your training.
Current charges for Ofqual courses are £10 per certificate for the First Aid at Work or First Aid at Work requalification, and £5 per certificate for any other registered course (except FREC 3, where the certificate cost is included in the course fee).

First Aid Training Associates certification

Under our own certification, you get the same high quality first aid course, whichever certification you choose. The difference is that, if you choose to have First Aid Training Associates certificates, we do not need to make the additional Ofqual charges, so keeping your total costs to a minimum.

Just wanted to give a little feedback on the Emergency First Aid at Work Course I attended last Friday. It was by far the most informative first aid course I have attended and I thought Simone was excellent, keeping everyone engaged for the whole day.
An excellent course and trainer. He was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He answered every question thoroughly, giving accurate guidance on how to deal with every scenario. I will be using the company again, very soon. Thanks!
I found the course very useful and engaging. It helped to have all the equipment available for practical use. Our trainer made the class comfortable and welcoming. At no point did I feel pressured or out of my comfort zone. A very nice environment to learn in. Thank you!
The trainer was very engaging. It was clear he knew the science behind why things were done, not just “because”. He was always happy to answer any questions on the subject. His management was also impressive when it came to the less co-operative members of the group. The topic was clear and concise with information suitable to all work places, including domestic and public.
Very good content and well delivered by experienced and skilful trainer. I am now aware and confident to deliver first aid.
I really enjoyed it. The knowledge of the trainer was good and he added in more science than other people have, so it wasn’t boring as I understood it and learnt more things.
I found this training a lot better than first aid training I’ve been to before. Not only was I having a first aid course, but it also felt a bit like a biology session too, which was good. I can’t think of any ways to improve it, as it was very interesting.
