These courses are delivered at your venue for up to 16 delegates (12 maximum, for accredited First Aid courses). NES Training provides all training materials and equipment. You, the group/company provide a suitable venue (that will facilitate both theory and where applicable, practical elements of a course) and a 'lead' contact person to liaise with for communication and invoicing.
NES Training will deliver on-site training at a time that suits your organisational demands including most evenings and weekends. This provides a cost effective option allowing the organisation to train people in one location and minimise employee travelling time and subsistence expenses.
Individual Booking/Open Courses for Individuals
Where you don't have enough people to book a group or in-house training course - you can also book on one of our open courses where individual delegates can book and attend.The courses will be held at set venues and times and NES Training will provide all training materials and equipment. You attend and enjoy the course.
Or why not try and get a few people together yourself and arrange a group course, where the course cost per delegate can, (depending on group numbers) be considerably less?
Certificates and Training records
At the end of each course, every participant who has successfully completed the training will receive a certificate indicating their attendance of the course together with a brief summary of the course contents. The certificate can later be used as evidence of their knowledge and, where applicable, competence. The certificates can also be used to support further qualifications and training, such as vocational awards in health and social care.
There is no requirement for employers to perform due diligence check on Qualsafe first aid centres since NES Training is an approved Qualsafe centre for statutory EFAW and FAW.
Thus, NES Training as an Qualsafe Awarding organisation centre offers minimal bureacracy for its customers.
The Health and Safety First Aid regulations have finally been amended so that the HSE no longer approve first aid training or qualifications.The onus has shifted onto employers to satisfy themselves that first aid providers are 'up to the job' of providing first aid that is suitable. The HSE published journal 'HSE GEIS3' provides a four page due diligence check list with appendix for employers that they have to keep for inspection. However, by using an awarding body Centre there is no need for employers to perform and record due diligence checks.
'Due to awarding organisations offering 'regulated qualifications' you do not have to use the checklist to satisfy yourself of the competency of that organisation.'
