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.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is important. To support CPD, we run conferences, training courses and present free online webinars supporting your staff in compliance, quality assurance, training and business development.
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.
