Question

Where are the courses held?

Answer At a location to suit you. Most clients prefer to hold the training in-house on their own premises but we are happy to run courses for you off-site, perhaps in a local hotel, or at our own training suite in Aylesford, Kent.

Question

Do delegates get any form of certification?

Answer All the accredited  courses conclude with an examination (optional) and successful candidates receive certificates from the awarding body.Certificates of attendance or achievement can be issued to delegates attending all other courses. We always include a method of validation to give assurance that the learner met the required level of competence.

Question

How soon can you deliver?

Answer Usually within 3-6 weeks depending on the course required and current availability. We have frequently arranged and delivered a course within a week.

Question

What is the cost?

Answer Prices vary according to the course being delivered. For example, the First-Aid at Work Certificate is as little as £ 995 + vat for up to 12 people – that’s only £82 per delegate! You will always receive  a written quotation before work begins. Discounts are available where higher volumes of work are placed.

Our standard daily rate for training is £875 + vat per day, with discounts available where multiple days are required. Nationally recognised courses have additional registration and certification fees. These are advised in advance and passed on at cost.

Question

Why should we use PHSC for our training?

Answer Just look at some of the comments made by clients and judge for yourself!ies Ltd (Passed NEBOSH Certificate with a credit.) We had a very productive day on site with PHSC today and now understand the minor non conformity we have, with “Dynamic Risk Assessment”. You are the first organisation who has managed to get the message across. This is so timely, as the minor will be raised to major if we haven’t addressed this issue by March.Very good indeed.  I felt like I had some invaluable training today.Maria Cannavina, Office & Compliance Manager, BACTEC

 

We would like to say that PHSC did an excellent days training for our engineers.  They went in quite disinterested but ended up really enjoying the course.

Pat Saunders Director, The Ardent Group

 

 

The feedback was excellent with an average 95% rating your presentation as excellent. Comments made by delegates included:

  • Excellent
  • Very informative
  • Absolutely fantastic

Bill Simmonds Chief Executive, NASBM

Question

What training methods do you use?

Answer We use a variety of methods during a course, depending on the subject and the course objectives.Our philosophy is to “train by doing” which means that, wherever possible, we include practical exercises. This enables delegates to put the theory into practice, and see at the same time how it relates to their own workplace. This makes them feel more able and confident to use their newly-learnt skills when back at the workplace.

Question

Who does the training?

Answer We have several experienced, qualified trainers. We select the most appropriate trainer for the course content and the delegate group. All trainers undertake consultancy work and can bring that experience to the classroom, citing real workplace examples to illustrate and reinforce learning points.
