First Aid

First aid courses are invaluable for drivers and staff

 

What exactly is First Aid? Essentially, it refers to the initial assistance provided in the event of an incident. For most of us, everyday life seldom involves encountering scenes of blood or gore. In these cases, first aid may simply involve applying a plaster to a minor cut.

However, what if you find yourself facing a more critical situation? Our Emergency Aid Course is designed to shed light on common scenarios you may encounter and equip you with the necessary actions to provide assistance.

In the most severe situations, a first aider plays a crucial role in assessing the scene, gathering accurate information to relay to emergency services, and taking appropriate actions to increase the chances of the patient’s survival.

Our specialist transport training courses are designed to help you to gain nationally recognised transport qualifications, stay current with industry best practice and renew your periodic training.

 

Important Information

The DVSA are now clamping down on drivers who repeat the same CPC module in a 5 year period.

The move follows a review of the Driver CPC directive by the EU commission, which now states that “a range of different subjects should be covered over the 35 hours”.

The DVSA and JAUPT will take action against any driver that is found to repeat the same periodic training subjects as part of the Driver CPC.
The enforcement agency and the accreditation service said they had started monitoring training provider uploads and driver records and could revoke a driver qualification card (DQC) if they find that the rules have been broken.

When you book with us please ensure you are booking a module that you have not already completed in this 5 year period.
