You’ll find answers to most of the frequently asked questions about us and our first aid training courses below, but if you have any other queries not covered here, please don’t hesitate to
get in touch.
What are the First-Aid requirements for my business? Read more
In 2013 HSE approvals ended for first aid training provision, instead it was recommended that companies carried out due diligence checks to ensure their chosen provider was following correct protocol. If a company chose to use a first aid training provider who was not registered with an awarding or industry body, they would need to carry out checks to ensure the training both met their needs, and was delivered to the required standard.
Angel Training chose to register with Qualsafe, This is an awarding body regulated by Ofqual. We also chose to register with FAIB which is an industry body, this means all the checks have been carried out already for you. You can assess your requirements using our online calculator direct from this website, safe in the knowledge any checks have already been carried out. The calculator will ask questions to ascertain how many first aider’s your business requires, and to what level they should be trained. When delivering the course we will require a safe space in order to deliver the training. We will need access to electric, (as we often use powerpoints or training videos,) lighting and suitable heating so the attendees are comfortable. The attendees will need to have room to lay on the floor, so we need an area that is clear from objects around their heads. If you do not have much clear floor space it may be sensible to reduce the amount of attendees. Clear floor space is vital to ensure the safety of your staff. If the trainer feels the room is unsafe for the attendees, we may not be able to deliver the course. If you have any concerns about the space you have available, please do feel free to discuss with us at the time of the booking.

Electronic copies of hand outs or large print versions of training materials are available for the majority of courses.
What can I expect on the day? Read more
Everyone’s experience differs, but what you can expect is a professional and dedicated trainer who will answer any questions that you may have. Some courses may have written elements, but also expect to get hands-on as first aid is very much a practically based course.
On the booking form you will be asked if there are any educational or medical needs that we need to be aware of. In the vast majority of cases this will not prevent you taking part, but declaring this information allows our trainers to tailor the session, to be as inclusive as possible to your needs.
