It is important for businesses to invest in health and safety training, but it can also be very important for businesses to invest in the way that’s right for them.
Depending on your staffing levels and the number that may require particular training and qualifications, it can be financially prudent to book a closed session so that a larger number of people can receive training in one go.
The beauty of closed sessions (which can be scheduled to be run at your premises at your convenience or from one of our 4 training centres) is that, regardless of how many people from your company are in attendance, there is only usually one of our trainers needed, thus reducing the cost per head the more candidates involved.
Conversely, if you envisage only one or two people needing a specific qualification in the foreseeable future, it might make more sense to send them to one of our scheduled open sessions where they’ll undertake training as part of a mixed group of people from various organisations.
Unless there’s a good reason not to, we generally encouraged closed, on-site training sessions at your premises. The reasons for this are numerous, and all benefit you the client. And if you’re happy, we’re happy:
How does this work in practice? Here are some real life examples of savings made through electing for on-site closed courses:
£495 + VAT for an Abrasive Wheels ½ day course. max 12 people on clients’ premises. Works out at £41.25 + VAT per person. The cost for an open course at APT is £55 + vat per person.
As well as our awareness courses, we can also run all accredited courses on-site with a potential saving of £118 pound per delegate.
Flexible training solutions
In increasingly precarious times for businesses, both large and small, any opportunity to increase cost efficiency should be taken advantage of. As part of APT’s ever-flexible training provision, we offer both closed and open, on-site and off-site training sessions to allow our clients to arrange health and safety training that makes good financial sense as well as good common sense.
