New Blended Learning Courses

Maintaining vital training!

Over the last 10 years we have built a reputation of excellent customer service and pride ourselves on our no-nonsense, practical & memorable first aid training.

Throughout the Corona Virus outbreak we have quickly adapted to ensure we can still deliver vital first aid training to our customers as we understand first aid is both an important skill and a requirement of many organisations.

To support the current guidelines on social distancing and minimising contact time with other people we have adopted a new approach to training using blended learning courses. We have created a suite of ‘live’ online training sessions (webinars) that will enable customers to undertake part of the course remotely and then follow this up with a practical face-to-face session over a shorter duration.

Starting your first aid journey

Of course our customers could simply wait until we are able to run our usual courses however we anticipate an increase in demand so they could be waiting for several months before starting their training. By starting the webinar sessions, they will get ahead of the game by completing all the non-practical parts of their course in good time.

Why blended learning?

Training at home!

This meets current advice on minimising contact time and working from home whilst allowing you to schedule your training around a busy work schedule

How it works

Stage 1 –  Webinar

We have scheduled a series of ‘short’ live webinar sessions as part of the blended learning qualification. This will cover all the non-practical aspects of the course and will include live training, Q&A and plenty of practical skills throughout.

Blended learning is only permitted on certain first aid courses. The following table outlines which courses are permitted and the proportion of time that is allowed for each course:

Stage 2 – Follow up & revision                                                          

Further support will be available after each webinar through electronic materials & videos to support further ‘self-directed’ practice an prepare for any assessments properly.

Stage 3 – Practical ‘short’ course

When we can hold public courses again we will organise shorter courses covering all remaining skills such as treating choking, CPR & managing bleeding as well as completing any assessments.

When will face-to-face courses start?

We have been busy working hard to re-start delivering our training courses as soon as possible. As you will appreciate first aid training does require close contact and so we have established a policy for operating as safely as possible following ‘best practice’ information available from the UK Government and advice from our Awarding Bodies.

We have also been working hard with our venues to ensure that all necessary measures will be in place for your training course. We hope to be able to open up for public courses within the next few weeks and will schedule dates as soon as we have all the necessary procedures in place.

What next….

We hope that this reassures our customers that we are doing everything we can to ensure that people can still receive their vital life saving skills. Click on the link below to book your course.
