In Safe Hands Training - The Simulation Centre or Training at your work place

The Emergency First Aid Course has been approved by the Health and Safety Executive since October 2009. It was implemented mainly for workplaces that required their first aiders to be trained to a nationally recognised level without having to complete 3 Day First Aid at Work course. That said this is a detailed course but should more comprehensive training be required then the First Aid at Work course should be completed. We run very regular courses at our training centres or as is proving very common we can provide this vital training to you and your staff at your workplace.

Who is this course suitable for?

This course is designed to meet the first aid requirements of a low risk working environment such as offices, shops, food outlets etc. This means although the course is comprehensive it may not be suitable for high risk workplaces and a full First Aid at Work training course may be more appropriate. Students must be aged 16 or over to attend this course.

Who will I be taught by?

Our team of trainers are not just professional teachers the majority are members of the Ambulance Service and other emergency services. They deliver factual training based on current guidelines and most importantly experience. This ensures you are being taught by a professional that has actually done in real terms what they are teaching you.

In Safe Hands has a unique facility for training. Known as the ‘Simulation Centre’ students are taught in a multi environment setting. This includes a Kitchen, Bar Area, Lounge, Car, Outdoor area, Bathroom, Bedroom, and a Children’s play area. This allows courses to be facilitated, not just ‘in the classroom’ but in working arenas similar to that of their working environment.

It’s very much a fact of life that we learn by experience, which is why our training is more experience led.

What our trainee’s say...

" Just wanted to say a big BIG thank you for coming along to support our Runway Runaround event on Sunday, you guys were absolutely brilliant! The event simply could not have gone ahead without you guys there! Also thank you for sponsoring the foil blankets in all of the goody bags too - without the help from our supporters we could not have got such an event off the ground (excuse the pun!) so thank you for helping to keep our helicopter flying!!"
