A Polite Notice

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking a  Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work. Lighthouse Safety Training is fully accredited by QUALSAFE to provide the QUALSAFE Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid course and proof of that accreditation can be seen on our accreditation page.


An excellent course – well taught.  Practical elements were practised throughout so assessments could be completed with confidence.
