As a leading UK first aid training provider, the Red Cross will offer members of the ECA, a leading trade body for electrical and building services, discounts on at least 8 different first-aid training courses.
The training programme includes ‘First Aid at Work’, ‘Emergency First Aid at Work’ and ‘First Aid at Work Re-qualification’ courses. Those completing any of the courses will receive a recognised certificate from the Red Cross, which is valid for three years.
ECA director of business Services Paul Reeve said: ‘In many situations, contractors must provide, or check they have access to first-aid cover by law – but even when it’s optional, first-aid knowledge can be vital at work.
‘This partnership with the British Red Cross will help ensure ECA members have access to high-quality first-aid training programmes – helping to ensure the safety of employees and others, and providing excellent value.’
National sales manager for Red Cross Training, David Simpson commented: ‘First aid training can and does save lives and we know that face to face delivery is one of the most effective ways to learn these skills.
‘We are delighted that the ECA is working in partnership with the Red Cross to help maintain the highest standards of first aid skills for their members.
