Accredited or non-accredited first aid training?
There is no longer any requirement for first aid training to be formally accredited. But you may decide that that’s what you want. Alternatively you may have been instructed by an external body (e.g. Ofsted) that your first aid training has to be formally accredited. We offer accredited and non-accredited first aid training. It’s your decision as to what is most appropriate for your organisation. Our accredited first aid training is provided under the banner of NUCO, which in turn is regulated by Ofqual.
