Happy Birthday to Us!

With everything that is going on in the world right now we nearly missed our 10th Birthday! Although our MD Bruce had been delivering training in various forms prior to this date, in April 2010 he made it official and formed The First Aid Box Training Solutions. Centre accreditation was awarded by Qualsafe Awards shortly after allowing him to deliver a range of regulated first aid courses, a partnership that is still going strong today. In the early days, training was organised and delivered around Bruce's day job however as the company's reputation grew and more clients came on board it became apparent that lack of time was becoming an issue and in 2017 Bruce decided to leave the corporate world and concentrate his efforts solely on the business. This move meant that he could develop the range of courses being offered by not only investing in his own training and experience but by procuring the services of others to work alongside him. It also allowed him the flexibility to start offering open courses where individuals could book on and achieve their qualification. The majority of delivery up to this point had been on-site to businesses however within the first 6 months it became apparent that this way of delivering was hugely popular and Bruce decided it was time to set up a dedicated Driffield based training venue which is still going strong today (albeit in slightly larger premises now to accommodate the increase in delegate numbers). In November of 2017 the decision was made to branch out into the Event Medical sector following several requests for us to provide this service.  It was a service addition that has proven to be extremely successful and one that compliments the training perfectly. 2020 was shaping up to be by far our most successful event year so far with confirmed bookings most weekends between April and October, a number of repeat bookings and several high profile events secured.  Obviously in light of the current COVID-19 situation things are maybe not going quite to plan but we are still immensely proud of FABtraining and its successes in this area and we are confident that this minor setback will not affect us in the long term! Overall, the past 10 years has seen The First Aid Box Training & Event Solutions go from strength to strength - we have a great team of people working for and alongside us, we have forged some amazing business relationships and most of all, we have had an absolute ball throughout! So here's saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US and we look forward to celebrating it in style once this difficult time is behind us.
