Who can attend a First Aid Course?
Anybody is able to attend a first aid course. The more people who know basic first aid, the better! The UK is some way behind countries such as the USA, Sweden & Norway when it comes to emergency care. Whilst our awarding body require attendees to be at least 16 years of age to receive the level 3 award, we do regularly offer specialist training to younger attendees as part of our youth education programme.
Who will provide the training?
Training will be delivered by one of our experienced team. We offer professional led training services with a targeted allocation of staff to courses that best suite their expertise for example;
– First aid & Emergency care courses delivered by Paramedics
– Moving & Handling courses delivered by Physiotherapists
– Mental Health courses delivered by Registered Mental Health Nurses
– Fire Marshall courses delivered by serving Firefighters
What happens if I need to cancel?
Course bookings can be cancelled via telephone or email up to 7 days prior to the start date of the course. After 7 days, due to venue costs, full refund cannot be guaranteed. Where there has been no financial penalty to Essex Medical Training, for example venue cost, it is possible for short notice refunds to be considered.
As part of the course fee the deposit is 20% of the total and is generally non refundable. Special considerations can be taken into account on a case by case basis. Where a course is rescheduled by us, full refunds will be offered with deposits included. Where possible, deposits may also be carried forward onto another course in the event of rescheduling for delegates no longer able to attend.
Essex Medical Training will always endeavour to be flexible where the rescheduling of courses is concerned. This could include changes in individual circumstances where a delegate who has paid in full, is now unable to attend, being substituted onto a course being held at a later date. *Subject to availability. As part of our commitment to flexibility, we are able to offer weekend training to suit your needs at no extra cost
