Where does the training take place?

The training can be carried out in your work place. We do ask that the following is required:

A suitable sized room that is inside and has an electrical socket point. It must be big enough for both theory and practical training as participants will be asked to simulate incidents on the floor. The room will need to be at a suitable temperature and will not be interrupted throughout the day while the course is taking place. There must be access to a toilet with running water.

What we will provide:

  • The examiner/trainer
  • A projector, screen and all videos needed
  • A flip chart
  • The presentation
  • The mannequins for all participants (1 between 2 people)
  • All training equipment and materials (including bandages and handouts)
