Please ensure all delegates aim to arrive at least 10 minutes before the course start time. Failure to attend any part of the course may result in the delegate’s removal from any final examination (where applicable).  The complete course must be attended to receive a certificate.

The customer takes responsibility to ensure any delegate placed on a course must be free from any condition or injury that will affect their ability to participate during the practical aspects of the course. They must be able to kneel on the floor to administer CPR and put a casualty in the recovery position. Please ensure any limitations on participation are brought to the attention of the company at the time of booking and the trainer at the start of the course.  Certain assessment criteria must be achieved to qualify on courses. If any doubt as to suitability to attend, the customer should discuss this on booking a place.
