Our Valuable Team Members

A training company is only as good as it’s trainers and the last course they taught…

At XET our first aid trainers are a diverse mix of individuals who are handpicked to deliver each and every course.

Each one of them is sector competent within their own speciality, through years of real-life experience; as well as being experienced trainers with credible teaching backgrounds and qualifications (see quality assurance for more information)

XET trainers are constantly on the go; learning new skills and more importantly practising the basics. They are all subject to review and auditing on any course at any time and proactively develop themselves through CPD (continued professional development).
