Course Time-tabling:

One benefit of booking your First Aid Courses with GCN- FA4A is that we offer ‘discounted fees’ as well as the opportunity to ‘spread the training over longer periods’ to help avoid your staff, volunteers and/or students being absent for large parts of the day / week for example:

  • A First Aid at Work (FAAW) course normally lasts for 3 days, 6 hours per day (not including breaks)
  • Most smaller organisations find it hard to release their people for this amount of time and most First Aid companies are unable to split the the First Aid training into smaller sessions and run them over longer time scales
  • FA4A can Spread out the FAAW course over:
    • 3 weeks of 6 hours per week, or;
    • up to 6 Weeks of 3 hours per week.

Course Costs:

For First Aid At Work Courses:

  • Can be discussed during a free consultation about the organisation’s First Aid training Needs
  • Will be higher if using our dedicated First Aid Training Rooms at the GL3 Community Hub in Churchdown
  • Courses can be carried out at your locations, however, Disability Access will be required as our Trainer Chris Auer-Howett is a Wheelchair Disabled Army veteran
