Frequently Asked Questions

Where does A&A Training deliver its training courses?

We provide training courses throughout the UK, including Northern Ireland, and will be able to visit you or arrange a venue on your behalf.

Who do you deliver your training courses to?

Our courses can be delivered to individuals on a one to one basis, groups of individuals, and public and private organisations of any size.

How much does your training cost?

Each customer has an individual assessment of their training requirements and the results of this assessment will determine the cost of each course, please contact us should you wish to discuss this further. Courses for individual candidates are detailed in the relevant sections of this website.

Can you arrange a venue for me, or can you use mine?

Either. As long as the venue is suitable, in terms of size and facilities for the number of candidates to be trained, then we will be able to teach there.

How many candidates do you teach on a course?

We adhere to national guidelines for our instructor to candidate ratios, for example the UK Core Skills Training Framework.

Are your instructors credible?

Our instructors are senior clinicians with significant experience of working for the NHS or private sector. They are selected due to their high standards and strong clinical and educational background. The majority of our instructors are Resuscitation Council UK Advanced Life Support instructors or providers.

My training is out of date and I’ve not updated it for over 2 years. Am I still allowed to undertake training with A&A Training?

Yes of course! Our experienced instructors will put you at ease and are used to supporting staff to ensure they pass the course with competence. Just make your instructor aware and they will ensure that, if needed, you can get extra support during the course.

Are A&A Training’s certificates accepted in the NHS and private sector?

We provide training to many NHS organisations and private healthcare organisations and our certificates have been accepted by all these organisations, as well as being subjected to rigorous CQC inspections.

I’m newly qualified and really want to do my cannulation and IV medicines training and a group of friends are interested. Can you help?

Yes. If you are able to get between 5 and 8 people together we would be able to deliver this training for you. We can also look at getting a course tailored for you to book an instructor and pick topics that you specifically require. We have taught 8 newly qualified nurses over a one week period to make them more attractive to employers, with topics covered including IV medicines, cannulation and venepuncture, a mandatory update day and Immediate Life Support (ILS). This enabled these newly qualified nurses to get jobs over their peers who qualified at the same time.

I need to do a Level 1 Child Protection course but am struggling to get to some of the venues. Do you have any other suggestions?

We have a selection of E-Learning courses that you can do at your leisure from the comfort of your home. To find out more and access these courses, follow the link at the top of this page.

How can I pay for my A&A Training course?

We use WorldPay and PayPal to process our payments for individuals. For organisations we accept purchase orders, cheques, credit cards or an arranged payment plan. All these are subject to completing a booking form or agreeing a Service Level Agreement (SLA).
