If you want a first aid course for 6 or more people booking your own course can work out the most affective way. Using your own venue can offer even more savings, or we can find a suitable local venue for you.

To support local community and voluntary groups in Lochaber, Argyll and Bute and Mallaig Highland First Aid offers a special rate.  

Example of a group course booked by Active Schools, Highland Council.

 Active schools wanted a Emergency First Aid at Work 6 hours course for their volunteers. They had  twelve people and access to Coal Community Centre. As volunteers they also accessed a special community and voluntary group rate. In total this saved them well over over 50% off the cost of first aid training. 

  

Frequently asked questions for bespoke and private courses.

I’d like to use our own venue, how do I know it is suitable?

The venue needs to big enough for up to 6 people to lie down on the floor and 6 people to work around them, away from doors and other hazards. The floor needs to be suitable for people to lie and kneel on. 12 chairs are really important as is two power points and a table to put the projector and laptop on. Easy access to toilets and some where to make hot drinks is ideal. 

 
Do we all have to be from the same organisation?

Its great if different groups can come together to make a full course. It is easer if they have a similar back ground, i.e. forestry and construction works well; as does outdoor instructors and countryside rangers. 

 
Could we run the course over a number of evenings?

Yes, we need a minimum of 2 hours per session over 9 weeks. Experience tells us that 2.5 to 3 hours an evening is about right, the fewer number of sessions the easer it is for people to attend and stay focused. For an Emergency First Aid at Work we’d suggest 2 sessions. 

 

 

How many people can I have on one course? 
For each trainer you can have 12 people. If you have more than 12 most business find it easer to have two courses on separate dates as it has less impact on running the business, you can still run the business while one group do the training.
