The Training Centre

Established for over 17 years, The Training Centre provides professional first aid and emergency rescue training courses for private individuals, company employees and service personnel. Courses operate regularly at our centre in Newquay and we also conduct courses at external sites and business premises throughout the South West and beyond. In fact, we can organise first aid or rescue training courses anywhere in the UK!

First aid training courses are available at all levels, from Basic Life Support right through to Spinal Management. Emergency rescue training courses include Cliff Rescue, Confined Space Rescue and Emergency Medical Rescue at Heights.

The Centre is also home to the internationally renowned National Lifeguard Training Centre. Popular amongst those who wish to pursue careers in aquatic rescue, individuals wishing to follow a career in coaching can also combine their lifeguard qualification with the International Surf Association Surf Coach award at Lusty Glaze Beach.


Awarding bodies

All of our courses are strictly regulated by internal and external quality assurers and they are certified to professional standards. We also work with several medical rescue organisations to ensure that our courses are always up-to-date with the latest practice and relevant to real-life emergency situations.

We are accredited by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS), Association of First Aiders Qualifications (AoFAQ) and the Qualifications & Curriculum Authority (QCA). We are also on the UK Register of Learning Providers.

The Training Centre is providing quality refresher first aid training for the custody centres of the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary. This has been instrumental in maintaining an excellent skill level for staff in this difficult working environment.

I have had over 30 staff trained by The Training Centre over the past 4 years and everyone has enjoyed the courses. The trainers have been excellent and soon made people feel relaxed and involved. We have used them for the one and three day courses.

We have used The Training Centre for several years and have always found their team of medics to be reliable, personable and most importantly knowledgeable. It is always comforting to know we have the specialist medical cover on pitch-side when injuries do occur.

It was a pleasure working with the Training Centre and from an administrative point of view; evidence was freely available to ensure no double funding issues arose. OFSTED were present for one session, and they spoke highly of the provision.
