Two Great new Training Courses at VAO!

VAO are introducing two new training courses in January and February 2020.

Basic Life Support(BLS) Course - SCQF Level 5 Award Code: R434 04

Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available. Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places. A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it. This very practical course will enable your learners to use the AED competently and with confidence. Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but it also includes vital training in basic life support including resuscitation.

This course will run on the following dates:

29th January from 10 to 2pm and Friday 14 February from 10 to 2pm


Award in Food Safety in Catering at SCQF Level 5 Code R377 04

This is an excellent introduction to Food Safety in Catering and will benefit all employees at all levels, particularly those who hold, or are about to hold, a food safety role within their catering organisation. The course will clarify aspects of food safety which many of us believe to be complex and daunting. The importance of food safety in catering is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to establish policies and procedures and ensure their employees receive appropriate training.

 This is a 6-hour classroom based course. Dependant on the learner’s experience, there may well be some pre-course or post-course reading.

This course will run on the following dates:

10 February from 9 to 3pm and 20 February from 9 to 3pm.
