All courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines and meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981 and subsequent including the 1st October 2017 changes.

All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the Health & Safety Executive  requirements (2015 are the latest guidelines). Spectrum Training Vocational Training Qualifications (VTQ) are fully recognised by the Health & Safety Executive as Trade Body Qualifications.
