Alder Holly Ltd "Working hard to make learning easy"!

Welcome to the home page of Alder Holly Training Limited a family run training business. We are a licensed regulated training centre with awarding body/organisation ITC First, who awards and certificates all of the courses we offer. We operate in this way as the HSE advise that no due diligence is required by the course purchaser for regulated courses. Our non accredited certificated courses are run to the same standards as our regulated courses. So unlike some training organisations we are not printing certificates ourselves as we are quite happy to be open to outside inspection and scrutiny to ensure your training experience is to the highest possible standards and most importantly meets your training and learning needs.

Excellent course. Have attended around 10 over past 30 years and your instructor kept it interesting and informative throughout, whereas in previous years the course has dragged on. The instructor was in touch with us throughout and made it a joy to attend. Well done! Tim Level 2 EFAW October 2016 Gloucestershire

Having attended a number of these courses I can say that this one was one of the most enjoyable. The instructor was of the highest standard. Kevin Level 2 EFAW October 2016 Gloucestershire

Was excellent all round, many thanks Enjoyable, relevant and educational, well lead and timely Excellent informative day, practical nature was great All from first aid for motorcyclists Ford Motor Company Workers Basildon Oct 2016

I was particularly impressed with the tone and 'wordage' being slightly hard of hearing. I had no problem with the excellent clarity the tutor delivered, in truth the most informative and enjoyable and useful first aid course I have ever attended. Connie, Canine First Aid, Forfar, Dec 2016

Even if you have some first aid training would you be confident to use it and did the training cover this eventuality? Think about seated car casualties, safety helmets, rider kit & armour? The ITC Emergency Action for motorcyclist course covers all of these. Book now, save a life tomorrow!

Canine First Aid (First Aid for Dogs and Dog Owners) Why dog first aid? Well dogs travel with us unlike other pets and get walked everyday, yet you cannot dial 999 for your dog and the vet ambulance cannot come to you. Basic first aid can keep your dog alive so you can get to a vet or the vet may make call on you when they are available.

Dog First Aid

Canine First Aid Instructor. A two course to enable suitably qualified people to deliver the canine first aid course. Please contact us for further details.

First Aid for Complementary and Holistic Therapists. £5 discount for FHT and CTHA Members.Therapists have some work specific situations such as working alone, clients on treatment tables, clients reacting to treatments (such as allergic reaction to oils), and knowing when someone is in a relaxed state due to treatment verses being unresponsive and not being able top maintain an airway.

We can offer block and group bookings across the whole UK and we meet demand by accessing the UK wide network of trainers and assessors who are accredited with ITC, about 250 at present.

I think this was the best 1st aid I have been on during my 15 years of employment with the Home Farm Trust Joanna EFAW Nov 2016 Stroud

A huge amount of HELP and support offered and received from Mark. He always made sure that all attendees were fully aware of what was required from them. I would say this was the best trainers introduction event I have attended. Thank you Alister. Dog First Aid Tutors course 27th 28th May 2016 Hartlepool

I enjoyed the evening, you are a good trainer and managed to inspire my son who had a full school day before hand. I feel more confident that should I ever have another dog disaster that I could do the best I can to keep the dog alive til we get to the vets Lucy, Dog First Aid Evening Class Ullapool Nov 2015
