A cost effective way to train your staff.

This may be your own premises or another suitable training location that is convenient for you. If you do not have a venue available we can explore options and potentially offer you the use of our training venue in Blaydon.  

The On-site training option is particularly cost effective to those who have several people requiring training at the same time. In addition to this there are several other benefits to organising an On-site First Aid course:

  • Choosing your own venue gives greater convenience.
  • Travelling and accommodation costs can be removed or reduced.
  • The course content can be tailored to your exact requirements.
  • Businesses and organisations can choose a suitable time to run their course.

We aim to provide you with up to date information which is relevant to you and your staff. Our courses can be tailored to meet your requirements, therefore making them more industry-specific.

Our trainers are passionate about teaching First Aid and enjoy delivering training in a relaxed environment which will enable you or your staff to learn more and be more prepared in an emergency situation.
