Choose Carefully... Not Cheaply!
Why you need to know this...
If you think choosing your First Aid Training provider is all down to sitting in front of a search engine and selecting the cheapest quote from the top six... I'ts not, and it is probably why you'll be looking again before your next training program begins.
The First Aid Training market is saturated at the moment, there are plenty of options to choose from, and no doubt you've found a few yourself while searching the web? But beware, there are a lot of unqualified, inexperienced and uninsured people out there doing it very badly and on the cheap!
We appreciate that the current climate has made us all look at our costs in one way or another, and inevitably it's the training budget that gets hit harder than most, but please have a look at the check list below and ensure that value for money doesn't just mean cheap! We don't do cheap first aid courses, we do inexspensive ones that do not compromise on standards.
So please check your proposed training provider can answer "yes" to the following questions and provide evidence:
- → HSE Approval Certificate (It's Blue)
- → Public Liability Insurance Certificate
- → Employers Public Liability Insurance Certificate
- → Professional Indeminity Insurance Certificate
- → A website?
- → A published address and land line telehone number (You'd be surprised!)
- → Able and willing to provide references
- → Samples of the training materials used and the certificates that will be issued
- → Teaching qualifications of the instructors
- → No third party certification (We don't like this... "Iv'e just done a course for someone, how much would you charge me to do the certificates for them!")
As a professional company, First Aid Works will say yes to all of the above... Except number 10, because we just say NO to that one! And if you're still unsure, then please remenmber our "Price Beat Promise". Running a professional business is hard at the best of times, and we welcome competition and the higher standards that, that can bring, but if it's too cheap, there is normally a very good reason why?
