ProTrainings provide more than ever before!

You don’t need a training provider. You need a training partner. A company that understands your compliance and CPD needs, even if you don’t! You need a trustworthy, certified, reliable training partner. Well, that’s us. We have a huge online training portfolio; that’s important as it means you or your employees do not need to interrupt the working week. Training can be done on desktop or mobile device, whether you’re at home or work.

We’ve beefed up our data protection course to comply with the latest legislation known as GDPR. We know that it came into action last month so you all should be up-to-date, but there’s nothing wrong with a refresher! This course can be counted as professional development, and may just save you and your company a small fortune if you spot a breakdown in your processes after learning more about these new regulations.

Wicked new Wiki!

by Keith -

We’re all about helping you find the answers to your first aid and safety questions, fast. So we’ve developed a frequently asked questions section on our website where you can find lots of interesting info. It’s sort of like Wikipedia, which interestingly is named combining the words ‘wiki’ and ‘encyclopaedia’. The word ‘wiki’ which you probably aren’t familiar with, originates from Hawaii, where the term ‘wiki wiki’ means ‘very quick’. Its definition: A website or database, developed collaboratively by a community of users, allowing any user to add and edit content.

Real Life – Dog Hit-and-Run

by Keith -

Emily, a student who took her Pet First Aid Course with ProTrainings, used her quick thinking and the skills she’d acquired with us, to help a wounded Staffie who’d been hit by a car! Whilst travelling home from a grand Sunday lunch, Emily spotted a limping Staffordshire Bull Terrier. She pulled over and spoke to the owner, explaining she was trained in pet first aid and could help out. Luckily, she’d got the first aid kit she purchased from ProTrainings in the boot of her car. Emily quickly assessed the dog and realised its leg was broken, so she began …

Real Life: Pamela and Meningitis

by Keith -

Suffering from a distinctive set of symptoms she’d learned about on her ProTrainings first aid course, Pamela knew that she was suffering from Meningitis. A headache, sensitivity to bright lights, and not being able to move her chin down to her chest, all added up in Pamela’s head and she realised that time was fo the essence. Within an hour, she was being sick and displaying a meningitis rash, so it’s a good job this trained first aider knew to get herself to A&E as quickly as possible.
