Our team has created this course which is delivered in a 3-hour format (plus 3-5hrs online theory completed before the training date). The course has been streamlined to only cover a quick 10 minute written quiz followed by a session of practical based learning and assessment which makes the session fun and the interactive learning environment for our clients.
This course is delivered in a 3-hour class (plus pre-course online theory). Allow additional time for registration.
If you have trained before and hold current qualifications you can also opt for the Express Refresher Course – just 1hr class.
