Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailAt  midnight last night the HSE ceased to directly approve the provision of First Aid Training for the Workplace.  This places the responsibility for selecting a first aid training provider on the employer, the HSE have created a guide for employers to follow.

All ProTrainings registered instructors now have the option to offer their customers or employees the fully accredited QCF qualification for Emergency First Aid at Work or First Aid at Work Courses (subject to completing our QCF Application and receiving approval) or The ProTrainings (Trade Organisation) certificates.

Employers who select an Ofqual Regulated QCF accredited course do not have to prove due diligence by completing a checklist to satisfy themselves of the competency of that organisation for this reason we recommend that all active trainers register with us as a QCF centre if they haven’t done so already to ensure that they can meet the needs of all of their potential customers.The ProTrainings Emergency First Aid at Work / First Aid at Work certificate which also meets the strict guidelines set out by the HSE which require that all courses are taught in accordance with current accepted first-aid practices and more importantly that all trainers are monitored and that robust documented internal verification procedures and Quality Assurance procedures are followed.

Every student certified by ProTrainings can be tracked individually providing you with one of the most robust quality assurance systems available.

No other organisation offers it’s centres the choice of a Trade Organsiation certificate or QCF certificate on an ongoing basis.

For those of you who train internally, we do believe that providing your staff with a QCF accredited qualification is the best way for you to prove due diligence when offering training within your own organisation.

We will be discussing these changes in more detail during our 2 planned training days, if you are an active centre and would like to attend please cut and paste the link below into your browser to book your free place.
