Free First Aid Training in August

Free First Aid Training

Eboracum Training are offering Emergency First Aid at Work training to all their candidates who enroll onto the Level 2 award for Door Supervisors course in August, at no extra cost. We believe that First Aid training is an essential life skill that everyone should have and have therefore decided to roll it into our Door Supervisors course free of charge.

If our reputation of high quality training wasn't good enough there is now even more reason to train with Eboracum. Our Level 2 Emergency First Aid at Work course is currently above the industry standard, including the qualification in AED, Tourniquets and Catastrophic Bleeding. This OFQUAL regulated qualification meets all HSE standards and therefore helps you become more employable in addition to gaining essential life skills.13876111_1179671555387378_5424805829076025539_n

If that wasn't enough we now also offer Level 2 Handcuff training, endorsed by our awarding body HABC. This course will teach you the variety of Handcuff that are currently available for use on the market today. In addition to this we will train you in the use of 'CareCuffs'. CareCuffs are only trained and supplied, currently, by two other trainers in the UK and offer a great alternative to the traditional style handcuffs. Not only do they look less intimidating to carry but reduce the possible medical implications that the 'Rigid' handcuffs pose, therefore lowering the justification for their use, ultimately protecting yourself in gaining control and restraining suspects.

This optional course can be bolted onto your Door Supervisor course for just £120. This price includes your HABC endorsed certification in Level 2 handcuffing qualification, a set of CareCuffs, and a belt holder/carry case (RRP £39.99).

2016 Changes to First Aid training

New First Aid training regulations

Last year the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) published new guidelines for First Aid training, which saw one big change in the way we deal with 'catastrophic' bleeding. The new guidelines have now introduced and approved the use of tourniquets and haemostatic dressings, to deal with serious and sever bleeding, whereby direct pressure alone is not sufficient to deal with the injury. This training is to become mandatory to all courses by December 2016 but here at Eboracum Training have been rigorously working around the clock to bring you these changes early in preparation for the new legal guidelines.

So what does that mean to you, as an employee? This means that all our First Aid candidates will now receive training in the safe application of not only manufactured but improvised tourniquets and haemostatic dressings. This life saving knowledge could mean all the difference between life or death as the average adult can be in a life threatening condition in just 3-4 minutes following a sever bleed, if it is not controlled or stopped.Ineffective_Q1_cropped_508_x_519_1461925086_cropped_504_x_464_1461926603 (1)

So what if you are an employer? The new guidelines are introducing this to all workplaces and if following your workplace risk assessment, it is deemed as a risk, you should be stocking these items within your first aid kit and training your staff!

What if I have just completed my training but wish to be trained to apply tourniquets and haemostatic dressings? Don't worry, we are now offering an upskill course, which will refresh your qualification for another 3 years and include the new lessons on catastrophic bleeding. Prices starting from just £35pp!

Being one step ahead of the game is what we are all about at Eboracum Training, ensuring you receive the best training at the most cost effective price. We are now offering a consultation on your workplace to establish your requirement of First Aid trained staff and provisions. For just £25 we will assess your workplace and provide you with a full written report on the recommendations, in accordance with the Health and Safety (First Aid ) Regulations 1981, to make sure you're legally compliant ahead of the industry. Not only that but following this report should you require any training we will discount the fee and offset it against the costs of any training.

SIA Security Qualification Changes

What’s Changing?

Earlier in 2014 the Security Industry Authority (SIA) announced they would be updating the content and learning outcomes of SIA licence-linked qualifications following on from a public consultation.

These new qualifications have been update/ developed by our awarding body (HABC) in conjunction with other awarding organisations. These new qualifications are delivered as of January 2015.

We believe that the transition to the new qualifications will be a smooth process.

New content included the SIA Door Supervision Course:

  • A door supervisor’s right to search and additional
    considerations to take when searching;
  • Offences for which a door supervisor can make an arrest;
  • Limitations to a door supervisor’s power of arrest and why
    an arrest should only be made as a last resort;
  • Procedure for handling seized drugs;
  • Identifying acceptable forms of proof of age;
  • Importance of knowing evacuations procedures
    and identifying sources of information on terrorism
  • Understanding how to keep vulnerable people safe; and
    Understanding queue management and venue capacity

Content which has been tweaked in the new unit compared to the previous unit:

  • Identify different types of crimes against the person as defined by law;
  • State the law in relation to refusing entry and ejecting customers;
  • State the role of a door supervisor when dealing with threats of terrorism; and
  • State conduct that is unlawful under licensing, gaming and licensing of sex establishment legislation.

Candidates complete Door Supervisor Course – May 2014

5 Candidates completed their four-day Door Supervisor course which included examinations and practical assessments.

We covered various modules in line with the national course specification, and also used real-life examples to link the training to the job.  We invited Sam Warmington from the SIA along to talk about his role, and provide a re-affirmation of the relevant SIA License offences.  Mick Wilkinson from the Police Licensing Dept also attended and spoke specifically about York and the enforcement actions that take place.

On day four, we were joined by 7 more candidates who were “Up-Skilling” in order to renew their SIA License, so on day four, we had 12 candidates. Day four includes a theory session surrounding the use of force, physical intervention applications and the potential legal implications following physical intervention. We then went onto the practical assesment where learners were taught various techniques that help them to defend themselves or others, and help them to get their job done.

Here are some photographs from day four:
