Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the training carried out?

Usually the training venue will be our client's responsibility and full details of this are made clear around the time of booking so that you know what we are going to need to give your people the best possible experience of training with our team.

We have often helped our clients to source appropriate training venues, where that assistance was requested!

Due to the nature of our training approach, we often require a good-sized training room which has the capacity for your team to move around in and in which we can set up scenarios which are as close as we can get them to real-world applications of the material we teach your people.

What is the investment in training?

Our training costs are often calculated on a per-day basis and directly related to the Needs Analysis which we carry out with you.

We are constantly working to make sure that the investment level is reasonable and competitive.

We generally ask for an investment which takes into account the type of content we are going to work on with your staff, the numbers of staff involved, the risk level of the encounters they engage in and the number of days of training which will be required to get your people up to the proper standard.

We are VAT registered and all pricing sent to you is 'plus VAT at the prevailing rate'.

We also charge travel expenses which you should discuss with our training advisor so that these are as clear as possible as you book in your training course.

How quickly can I book training to happen?

Our training advisor is waiting to have a call with you to discuss your timelines and preferred schedule. We generally book training 4-6 weeks out from today, however we always have been able to respond to clients who need training 'as soon as possible' when urgent needs pop up. The sooner we talk with you, the sooner we can get the training in place!

How many people can attend a training course?

There are numerous formats which we use to deliver training with your team, whether it be a large group or a smaller team. We know that the best group sizes for learning depend on the complexity of the material to be covered, the amount of time we have with your people and also the constraints you may be working with in your budget and resources. Most of our clients put 12-16 people in our less-physically demanding training courses, and often fewer people than this into our more demanding courses. Let's talk about the best solution for your needs....
