Regulated Qualifications:

We only deliver Regulated Qualifications, so what is a regulated qualification and what does it mean for you the employer or business owner?

A regulated qualification is a qualification that is provided through an ‘Awarding Organisation’ that is recognised and regulated by a UK regulator such as Ofqual if you are in England.

Business owners and employers who we have supplied first aid training too are now leaning towards a ‘Regulated Qualification’ rather than an ‘In-House’ qualification because the certification for a regulated qualification demonstrates that the learner has attended a qualification course that is approved by a UK regulator and also accredited by an ‘Awarding Organisation’.
