First aid training courses are accredited by our RQF Awarding Body QualSafe to ensure the high quality standard of our courses is maintained throughout. Kentec Training are also long standing providers of first aid training in the South East.
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed.
What is ‘adequate and appropriate’ will depend on the circumstances in the workplace. This includes whether trained first-aiders are needed, what should be included in a first-aid box and if a first-aid room is required. Employers should carry out an assessment of first-aid needs to determine what to provide.
New Assessment Process for First Aid Training Courses
Following changes affecting all first aid training providers, candidates attending our First Aid training courses (the 3-day initial, 2-day requalification and the 1-day Emergency First Aid) are now both trained and assessed by one expert instructor/assessor during the course and not by using a separate assessor examination at the end.
This assessment will be through observation along with some written assessments.
Whilst these written assessments are straightforward, candidates need a basic command of English. So whilst we are often able to provide support to candidates who for example do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number who require assistance, although we may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
Scheduled Open Course Programme
Many of the courses are available via our Open Programme throughout the year with various dates to choose from. Our Course Calendar offers a wide range of dates to choose from, each held at our Training Facility in Tonbridge.
If however you are looking for a course to be delivered ‘in house’, at your site or offices, then Kentec Training can cater for this request.
