Personalise your training

Here at Vital Workplace Training, we strive to make our courses better than the rest. We achieve this by designing bespoke courses for our trainees which specifically target and apply to their own workplaces.

By doing this, we avoid dull and mundane one-size-fits-all training sessions. We encourage our trainees to engage with the session and take on practical activities. When it comes to essential training such as first aid at work, we believe the best way to gain knowledge is with an active and hands-on approach.

First Aid at Work

First aid at work is absolutely essential. Employers must make sure that there are enough members of adequately trained staff to provide first aid care in the workplace. This means regular first aid refresher training is advised, especially when heading back into the office after the disruptive year we’ve had in 2020.

Whether it’s a headache, a slight cough or a trip which leads to a broken bone, you need to be prepared to deliver first aid on any given day. Our first aid at work training course covers all the relevant regulations and will give you peace of mind that your employees can receive immediate help in case of an emergency.


Workplace training is essential and should be easily accessible for whoever needs it. We strive to provide our high-quality training sessions at affordable prices. 

  • For onsite or group training – £500 per day
  • Groups over 12 learners – Call us on 01376 317 760
