About Us - ProTrainings Training Programs
ProTrainings is a UK company offering online CPR, First Aid, Infection Control, Manual Handling, and Instructor Training for the UK and Europe. The training curriculum offered by ProTrainings was created as a joint effort between the ITG Instructor Training Ltd in the UK and ProTrainings, LLC in the USA. Over the past nine years, these two companies have certified more than 430,000 individuals.
Our mission begins and ends with saving lives. This is done by creating training programmes that increase the amount of information remembered, are easily available, and give providers the confidence to act decisively and knowledgeably when an emergency occurs. Our courses offer this while limiting the time professionals spend away from family or work.
ProTrainings solutions also help to solve large-scale workplace problems by replacing old methods of training with new, cost effective methods of training.
All training and certification courses offered by ProTrainings meet or exceed the standards mandated by the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), the UK Resuscitation Council, and the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). We use the latest technology in our comprehensive websites to ensure full understanding by using video based training and giving students access to this after the course.
We have a national network of instructors and a full range of 100% classroom courses including HSE approved First Aid at Work (FAW) and Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) and these can be found at www.ProCourses.co.uk or by emailing us.
