When you deliver first aid, you must be sure that the training you provide meets all of the requirements under the HSE and Skills for Health Council, it is now the responsibility of the employer to meet the due diligence requirements when selecting a first aid training provider. In many cases they look for a qualification that is monitored by either an Awarding Organisation or Trade Organisation.

If you register with ProTrainings, they provide the Internal Quality Assurance and unlike all others they also provide you with all of the training materials you need to deliver a wide range of courses.
