FREE refresher sessions are being offered by a first aid training company to help their clients keep their skills level up between courses.
Nightingale First Aid Training Ltd provides a range of courses in first aid and safety training, either at its own training room in Billing Road, Northampton or a clients own venues where required.
Founded by Angie Tyler in 2013, Nightingale First Aid Training delivers trade body and awarding body certificated courses through a team of qualified instructors. Leading the team, Angie ensures her own skills are kept to the very highest level through her volunteer work as a responder for East Midlands Ambulance Service.
Speaking about the free sessions, which will be held each month on a specific day, Angie said: "One of the things that came up in speaking to clients is that individuals usually only undertake accredited training once every three years and most felt that it was too long a gap between courses and they wanted the chance to practise in between.
"Some companies do provide annual training updates, but for those that don't have that available to them, the refresher sessions could prove invaluable, and could help save a life."
Nightingale First Aid Training provides courses in First Aid Training At Work, Paediatric First Aid and Defibrillator and CPR use. Online courses and blended online and classroom courses are available to provide flexibility.
The next free sessions will be held on February 25 and the day will consist of a refresher course in the morning and then an afternoon first aid surgery where anyone can suggest a particular issue they want to practise - anything from performing chest compressions to dealing with cuts, broken bones or embedded objects.
Angie added: "Our aim is to provide companies with the skills they need to deliver first aid where necessary and also to keep them compliant with Health and Safety regulations. It's important that people have the skills and confidence to help someone in an emergency and we care about the community around us and want them to know they can turn to us for help."
