Now the focus is on launching its training academy for workplaces, private clients and Military personnel who are on re-settlement.

Paul Caffrey, Managing Director commented;

‘’ We are really happy with the rate that the business is growing. We have plans to hire more staff and apprentices throughout 2017 and this training centre should help give us the potential to do so.

The Training centre is a fantastic opportunity for us to be able to expand our services and hopefully create more jobs for people in the Wakefield area and ultimately enabling students to be fully trained, capable and confident to work be a workplace First Aider or to pursue a career in Pre-Hospital Care.’’
