NUCO Training prides itself on the quality of service, support and essential back-up given to all their customers and trained Instructors. The company has invested significantly over recent years in providing our clients with the latest state-of-the-art technical support, whilst at the same time, not forgetting the importance of maintaining personal contact which is somewhat lacking in many of today’s businesses.

NUCO is carrying out business with many national and international companies including the Military, HM Prison Service, BAE Systems PLC, McDonald’s Restaurants Ltd, Marks & Spencer, Virgin Trains, Ashbury Educational Services Ltd, Babcock International Group PLC, Capita Health and Wellbeing, Leonard Cheshire Disability and the majority of local authorities throughout the UK, placing us as the UK’s leading independent provider of First Aid training.

The company’s activities cover all aspects of First Aid, Defibrillation, Health & Safety and Food Safety training. In particular, NUCO Training specialise in teaching the teachers in these specific areas of compliance, with Instructor courses running in Plymouth and throughout the UK all year round.

The provision of First Aid has gone through significant changes recently, with a complete review of the HSE Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) and the development of new accredited qualifications that sit on the qualifications framework in England, Wales, Northern Ireland (Ofqual) and in Scotland (SQA).

NUCO Training is proud to have been associated and influential with such change and development, which is still ongoing.
