Association of First Aiders Qualifications (AoFAQ)
What we think about them (Vida at Transolva T/A Train First Aid)
The support we have received from AoFAQ since becoming an approved centre with them in April 2013 has been second to none. The application process was very simple, the membership fee is not expensive, books and certificates and very reasonably priced and arrive quickly, and all supporting training materials are free. The staff in the Compliance Department are very helpful and knowledgeable, and we can pick up the phone to them at any point to be greeted by a friendly helpful advisor on the other end of the phone who is always able to answer any question. They even help and advise on marketing. We found the EQA visit from AoFAQ to be useful exercise rather than a daunting audit! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them as an AO for any training centre wishing to deliver first aid, health and safety, health and social, education and quality assurance subjects, or for trainers/assessors wishing to gain qualifications themselves in these and associated subjects to further their own careers.
What they say about themselves

AoFA Qualifications offer an increasing range of qualifications in first aid, health & safety, care sector, security and train the trainer / assessor / IQA awards.
Becoming an approved centre of any Ofqual recognised awarding organisation can seem daunting at first. AoFAQ supports you through the approval process including supplying example policies and written procedures. So whether you are a very small business or large international, we are here to help.
To support centres and trainers we supply comprehensive lesson plans, qualification specifications and PowerPoints. Most PowerPoints are available free of charge for use with AoFAQ qualifications.
To assist your Centre in promoting training courses to your clients we supply comprehensive, full colour sales literature. Artwork is also available for you to brand and customise free of charge.
We will not be beaten on support, price and quality.
We are not your competition. – A number of Awarding Organisations are tightly associated with a training provider running the same courses as you. AoFAQ only run training events to improve and develop Training Centre staff not their clients.
