Continuing it’s investment in training, CIA Fire and Security offered First Aid training recently to it’s staff at their offices in Cirencester. Because of their commitment to personal and professional progression and the promotion of safety in the workplace CIA Fire and Security offered the training to any staff who were interested.

CIA Fire and Security chose St John Ambulance for the training as they are the nations leading first aid charity. Also they offer a wide range of training in risk assessment, fire marshalling and manual handling.

With a great turn out, everyone who attended the course completed it successfully. St John Ambulance awarded everyone a certificate in Emergency first aid as well as having a great day learning new skills. Emma McKinnon works in the accounts office at CIA and she said “I think it was a very enjoyable and informative course. It’s given me that bit of knowledge and confidence I was looking for!”
