First Response Emergency Care (QCF) L4

Modelled on a small town, it provides a dynamic environment where, if necessary, delegates' skills and knowledge can be tested and assessed against real life situations, thereby considerably enhancing the learning experience. Our unique urban environment is used very effectively for the practical elements of our security and hostile environment courses as well as our First Aid, H&S and other QHSE (Quality, Health, Safety, Environment) courses. You won't experience courses like ours anywhere else!
