This can be taught as an easy to understand course or as a certified course to suit professional carers & pre-school staff, with the one day / 6 hour course and also the two day / 12 hour course as approved by the HSE.

Emergency First Aid at Work... (1 day)

This is the 1 day course as required to comply with the Health & Safety at Work etc Act 1974 Regulations, which requires all companies to employ First Aiders in the workplace. This 1 day course is aimed at the lower risk environments, such as smaller offices & shops. Certificates are legally recognised and valid for 3 years from the date of the course with a recommendation for annual refresher training.

Mental Health Awareness (1 day)...

This introduction to the management of Mental Health is a great way to begin to understand the way we can manage our own stress and anxiety and also help others - in the workplace and beyond. A fully certified course, which builds on the established principals provided by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England.

Airborne Pathogen Awareness (Half Day or Full day)...

This fully certified 1 day course is aimed at those who wish to gain a clearer understanding of how Airborne Pathogens are transmitted and can be managed both at work and at home. This is especially important during the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, but can be applied to a much wider range of airborne diseases and risks to health. Provided by our own fully-trained medical professionals, with hands-on experience and training, this course is a great addition to those responsible for workplace safety and general wellbeing. 

Manual Handling Training...

Designed to complement our First Aid Training - with an aim of preventing / avoiding injuries through knowledge of the correct way to lift and move objects. The course includes a basic understanding of the human frame and physiology and how to maximise it's use to move items with a minimum risk of injury.
