Our Courses

Courses

Shield Training was set up by a state registered paramedic with 20 years experience.
Our aim is to provide our customers, whether they are employers, employees or the general public with highly professional "hands-on" training courses that provide you with the skills to manage in emergency situations.

First Aid at work (FAW)

Employers have to risk assess their workplace first aid requirements and the Level 3 award in first aid at work qualification is one of the statutory qualifications for this purpose.

First Aid at Work, Refresher

This course is suitable for anyone who has already attended the First Aid at work, 18 hours content, within the last 3 years and are looking to refresh their skills.
The course content is based on that of the First Aid at work, 18 hour course, however as participants may be more knowledgeable in some elements of the course we teach at a participant led pace, focusing on elements in great detail if required.

Paediatric First Aid

This fully certificated qualification satisfies the guidelines and criteria as laid down by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and OFSTED. Our 12 hour training sessions include a variety of First Aid Priorities.
For those who work with children regularly this course will allow you to work confidently and competently knowing that you can react positively and appropriately to a number of different first aid incidents involving children or infants.

Paediatric First Aid Skills – Parent/Carer

We run very popular and successful parent/carer first aid sessions. These sessions cover basic skills that will provide parents/carers with peace of mind that they can react effectively to an emergency situation involving their child.

Appointed Persons First Aid

Options available: Standard, Schools, Social care, Sports. The Appointed Person First Aid course will provide participants with the essential skills required to manage an emergency situation until someone more qualified arrives to take over. This course is also the minimum acceptable by the HSE for First Aiders in small low risk companies.

AED Training (Automatic Defibrillator)

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) can happen anytime, anywhere and to anyone, it knows no boundaries! It is a proven fact that early use of a defibrillator is the only effective treatment for SCA.
Our course teaches the essential skills that an AED operator needs and gives participants the confidence to know what to do in an emergency.
Defibrillators are very simple to operate and no previous training is required to attend this course.
Participants will be observed throughout the session by the instructor to ensure they are confident and competent in first aid skills. Upon successful completion participants will be issued with a certificate.

Testimonials

" I have participated in several first aid and AED training courses during my career and I have to say that Adam’s knowledge of the medical world is outstanding. I was impressed with the way he engaged with the staff and how he’s developed his own technique, to ensure the training is interesting and easier to learn. His hands on approach certainly helped my staff achieve the most from these courses.
The feedback I received from my staff was outstanding. Everyone said how clear and helpful the training was, providing them with the confidence they need to put into practice. I cannot recommend Adam enough for the professional training he provides.
I will certainly be using Adam and Shield Training for further training course that I arrange in the future."

Neville Thomas
Operations Manager
Malmaison Hotel Cheltenham

" As a nursery manager I have used several first aid training companies to train both my staff and I. I found Adam’s approach to teaching and medical knowledge to be exemplary. The paediatric first aid training course was both practical and informative. Adam put my staff at ease and they felt that they came away from the course with a sound understanding and the confidence to be able to manage an emergency situation. I cannot recommend Adam and Shield Training enough and will be using the company for all our future training courses."

Megan Harper
Nursery Manager
Gloucestershire

" The first aid training taken by Adam, was fun and informative. He made sure we understood the training before he moved on to the next subject. Having it at our own setting made it so much more convenient to my staff. The staff were full of praise after the 2 sessions and highly recommended the training to anyone that needs to know first aid for children. Thank you Adam for making it fun and memorable for the girls."

Helen
Foxcubs Day Nursery Ltd

"We needed first aid training for ten members of our staff some who had previously been trained and others that had not. Adam provided the training in scenarios that were related to the types of incidents that might happen at the school. He made sure we understood all the relevant information before moving on to the next area and ensured we did by asking us all questions relating to the topic. Our staff were full of good things to say about the training and felt more comfortable and confident about delivering First Aid as a result. I would highly recommend Adam and his training to anyone that needs to know more about first aid at work. Thank you Adam for your time and expertise."
