I’m Martyn Coton the founder and the driving force behind Warwickshire First Aid Training.
With over 15+ years of experience as a freelance first aid trainer, I decided it was time to start the journey of being an accredited first aid training provider in my own right and in 2016 Warwickshire First Aid Training Ltd came to fruition and most of the other first aid training providers I had worked with over those 15+ years were very supportive and encouraged me to build my dream.
In those 15+ years as a freelance first aid trainer, I realised how much of a daunting task it is for an employer or business owner to get a reputable first aid training provider to deliver their first aid training. So from that, I wanted to deliver regulated qualifications that are accredited from a large awarding organisation and after a lot of research I decided on Qualifications Network (QNUK) who are regulated by Ofqual and they would be our awarding organisation of choice and was one of the best decisions I made and not only are they very supportive as an awarding organisation and they have extremely high standards that match our standards too.
As a result of becoming an approved centre with Qualifications Network, all of our chosen first aid qualifications are nationally recognised and regulated by Ofqual, we are internally and externally quality assured on a regular basis to ensure we are compliant and our first aid training meets national standards and requirements.
From the outset, the standards and goals of Warwickshire First Aid Training Ltd were set very high indeed and we have consistently held these standards and regularly surpassing them as we strive in our goals to improve further to be a go too company for first aid training and on our last 3 external quality assurance visits, we have had ‘outstanding’ in all areas.
