  • Floor surfaces
  • Seating
  • Writing surfaces
  • Toilet facilities
  • Ventilation
  • Lighting
  • Heating
  • Access

Feature Medical can also provide off site training and arrange for external locations within your vicinity to hold training sessions if no suitable location is available in house.

Flexible Training Hours

All our Qualsafe First Aid Courses can be broken down into shorter teaching sessions to fit in with workplace shifts or time constraints, and then be spread across a defined number of weeks to complete the chosen course.  The minimum teaching session would be two hours.

We can also tailor our First Aid Courses to meet your specific requirements by adding any specialised subjects that you may require.  Just speak to us about your requirements.
