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.
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.
