    Where Do You Deliver The Training?

    We can deliver this training at your premises, as long as it's within the UK. Also, we have our own venues in Stoke on Trent, London, Swindon, Epsom & York if you need access to a training room (additional charges will apply). We can also deliver this training virtually using Zoom. However, sessions delivered via Zoom will be theory only and will not include any practicals.

    How Many Delegates Can I Have On One Session?

    We will deliver this training for a group of up to 12 delegates. For larger groups we can either provide multiple trainers on the same day or run multiple days to get everyone trained.

    Who Will Conduct The Training?

    One of our expert clinical tutors. These are either Nurses or Doctors with abundant clinical and complex care experience and knowledge - so you'll be in great hands! We will let you know who is doing the training in advance. You can check out their skills and experience by finding them on our meet the team page.

    Will attending this training make me competent?

    In short, no. No classroom-based training course can give you full competency - be very wary of anyone claiming they can.
