Chris Newland – AIOSH, IQA


I have spent many years in the farming and ground working industries. In 2008 I decided to further my education and become a PTLLS instructor – realising I had an interest in helping people reach their full potential.


Also being an NPORS operative for many years, with a range of different categories behind me and watching NPORS grow from strength to strength to become one of the leading accredited and registration bodies within the construction industry, in 2017 I decided to become an NPORS accredited instructor – CPN was established.


Since starting CPN I have also become an NVQ assessor, AITT and First Aid for Mental Health Instructor.


My favourite quote is ‘It always seems impossible until it’s done.’

Catherine Newland – IQA

Managing Director

I look after all the administration and logistical aspects of CPN Training, ensuring all training and testing is planned around our clients work schedules with cards/ certification processed quickly and efficiently.


Alongside administration I am also an NVQ assessor and deliver First Aid Training of which I am very passionate about, I feel privileged to be able to give individuals the skills necessary to help another in need.


My favourite quote is ‘Life is like a camera, if at first you don’t succeed give it another shot.’

James Folca

First Aid Instructor

As a personal trainer and class instructor working out of my studio gym, I work with clients who have medical conditions within the NHS referral scheme, teaching first aid at work allows me to continue my passion of promoting a person’s health and well being.


Having the skill set of preserving life in a situation that may present itself is I feel very important as we never know when we may find ourselves needing to help others.


Clients training within my gym are my responsibility and even though they are working at a high intensity this environment is a controlled one. Situations in life are often out of our direct control and knowing how to administer first aid when the situation arises is vitally  important.
