Will attending this training make me competent?

To put it plainly, no. Complete competency cannot be attained with classroom-based training; be very wary of anyone who claims otherwise. The goal of our in-class assessments is to reduce the knowledge gap that exists between classroom learning and preparedness for the job. We’ll see to it that you have access to the relevant competency proformas and workbooks, which you need to fill out and return in compliance with your workplace’s local policies.

What equipment will you use for training?

We have access to an extensive selection of training tools and equipment. The training will be useful and adaptable. If you do, however, specifically require a particular type of equipment, please indicate so during the booking process, and the staff will see to it that it is provided.

As an alternative, we can train using your personal equipment.

What is RQF?

“Regulated Qualifications Framework” is abbreviated as RQF. In the UK, different qualifications are categorized and contrasted based on this framework, which takes into account both the degree of difficulty and the knowledge and skills they represent. The RQF gives consumers a way to understand the depth and amount of learning acquired by those who complete certain credentials, which makes it simple to evaluate different courses and degrees across different sectors and institutions.

As I have told others… It is the best, most informative training I have ever attended
