Course Details

Course Duration - 5 days

The minimum number of guided learning hours which have been stipulated by the Awarding Organisation is 30 hours.

However, as we are a premium training organisation, we do not adhere to the bare minimum of standards.

Some companies conduct this course over 4 days (that's 7.5 guided learning hours per day, NOT including lunch and tea breaks). 

This places a toll on the learning experience and negatively affects the quality of both training and learning. 

​Therefore we refuse to compromise on the delivery of high quality learning, and will conduct this over 5 days.

This also allows us to conduct practical scenarios involving real-life actors who will simulate casualties. There is of course, no substitute to real-world experience, but scenario drills are the next best thing to preparating for the real world.
