Our standardised open courses are most suited to individual members of the public and those businesses who only need to train a small number of staff.  Training and assessment is carried out on the same day(s) at the same location – our offsite venue in Larbert.  Open courses are available to anyone.  

Benefits of offsite training:

  • More cost effective for smaller groups

  • You don’t need to waste time on organisation – Safe Hands will do all the work

  • Employees can focus their attention on the training without any distractions

  • Training is often taken more seriously as staff recognise the investment made by the business

  • Unfamiliar surroundings can make training more interesting and staff will return ‘fresh’

  • Employees will have the chance to network during breaks and can return with new ideas / perspective

We offer a broad range of open courses including HSE recommended and specialist training such as Paediatric or AED.  Click here to see our current price list and booking information or visit the individual course pages in this section for more details.

Course prices are inclusive of refreshments (tea, coffee, water, biscuits and fruit throughout the day), plus a light lunch for FAW/EFAW/RFAW/Paediatric courses. Candidates are also issued with a comprehensive training pack to take away.  Depending on the course booked, this will include all or some of the following:

  • appropriate training manual & handouts

  • notepaper & pen

  • First Aider lanyard

  • CPR face shield

  • penlight torch

  • Bandages & gloves for scenario practice
