NEW Moving & Handling Train-the-trainer Refresher We currently offer the standard two day requalification every two years but we always listen to what our customers experiences are and have taken on board that some trainers feel two years is longer than they want to wait for a chance to discuss any challenges with other professionals. Our initial train the trainer moving and handling is a four day course covering moving and handling techniques as approved of by National Back Exchange and instructing in how to train those techniques effectively. Our customers now have the choice of a Refresher every year or a Requalification every two years - both will refer to their original four day certificate. 

As all our customers know we are also on the end of the phone to discuss any challenges that may occur .

NEW Dementia Course Changes Responding to customers' requests for a further dementia course we now offer Dementia Course 1: Person-centred Dementia Care and Dementia Course 2: Working with People Living with Dementia. If you have already completed course 1 and are interested in knowing more, we will be happy to see you. The two half-day courses can be run in a single day if that works for your team – just contact us to discuss and to book.

NEW From 1st June 2017 Norvic Training will issue electronic certificates for all non accredited course via email. We have decided to make this change to: 

  • speed up the process of getting certificates sent to customers following the course. Emails will be sent out on receipt of course payment.
  • allow customers to print as many copies of the certificate as necessary and maintain electronic training files.
  • delay any course cost increase by reducing posting and printing costs.
  • reduce Norvic Training’s ‘carbon footprint’ in line with our environmental policy. 

We will still be happy to provide a hard copy of customer certificates on request should this be required.

 All accredited course certificates (Qualsafe accredited, RSPH accredited etc) will continue to be provided in hard copy sent out by post

NEW As of 2017 an awareness of the use of a defibrillator (AED) and dealing with catastrophic bleeds are included on our accredited first aid courses

Scenario Training

We are now regularly running Scenario Training at one of our client’s sites in Norfolk. We set up a casualty, complete with fake wounds, and let some recently qualified first aiders attend the scene. Here’s what our client had to say:
“As a company with over 1000 employees we feel that training is an important part of our business. We have been working closely with Norvic for some time and they are our sole training provider for first aid and defibrillator training. We, as many other companies, place our first aiders through basic first aid training and then expect them to carry on as if they were experienced first aiders. We sat down with Norvic and exchanged ideas on how we could give our first aiders more confidence in dealing with situations which can arise within the working environment. We loved the idea of running scenario training courses based on accidents which would be run within the business. After running one session it became clear to me that the benefit to the first aiders was excellent; both Norvic and I received some very positive feedback from the first aiders who attended with high praise to the two assessors, James and Chris, who did an excellent job. We look forward to carrying out further scenario training with Norvic and working closely with them in promoting a high standard of first aid training within our business."
Steve Langham, CCF

Making our community safer - Community First Responders receive free First Aid Course courtesy of Norvic Training
On Saturday 14th April, Tony, a Norvic trainer and Community First Responder with Brundall team, led a free first aid course courtesy of Norvic Training, which was attended by Community First Responders from across the area. Although Responders are trained by the ambulance service in life support skills, first aid covers a much wider range of skills applicable to everyday life. Everyone involved found it a very worthwhile day and the following 'Thank you's' and feedback, for Tony and Norvic Training was appreciated!

"It was good fun and I learnt so much",  "[The training] Confirmed for me the usefulness of first aid training for first responders as well as our normal training", "Good pace of learning, well delivered, clear and easy to understand".
