Where can I teach the Mini Medics courses?

Anywhere in the UK! There are no geographical restrictions for you to start teaching the Mini Medics courses. Providing the venue is suitable, sufficient and safe, the courses can be delivered anywhere, anytime of year.

Are the Mini Medics training courses regulated?

The Mini Medics courses are non-regulated and attendance is all that is required. A certificate of attendance is available in the back of each Mini Medics First Aid book and as a PDF for both courses.

How many learners can take part in a Mini Medics course?

Because the Mini Medics programmes are non-regulated, there are no rules stipulating a maximum number of learners you can teach on a course. From experience, we recommend a maximum of 16 learners per training session so the learners get the most out of each training session.

Can the courses be adapted in any way?

Yes, they can. You are provided with 3-hour and 1-hour course resources including PowerPoint presentations, trainer’s notes and session plans. We have no problem with you reducing or extending the syllabus, subtracting modules from the course or even creating a new syllabus using the materials provided.

How do I display my contact details on the ‘Find a First Aid Trainer’ facility?

It’s very simple. Head over to the CREATE A LISTING page and follow the steps to submit your application. The Mini Medics team will verify your contact information before it goes live for potential customers to view.

Please note that you must have purchased the Mini Medics First Aid Trainer Pack (or Mini Medics First Aid Trainer USB) for your details to successfully appear. You are also required to check and sign the disclaimer fields to ensure you meet the teaching requirements.

Can I use the Mini Medics logo on my website and literature?

Absolutely! You have full use of the logos and print files contained on the Mini Medics Trainer USB for marketing and promotional purposes.

How much should I charge for the Mini Medics courses?

It is up to you! We do not advocate any form of pricing structure for the Mini Medics courses, as it will depend on the type of training, the location, the duration of the course, the resources provided to the learners and your personal expenses.

Schools and clubs who invest in Mini Medics may want to offer their students free training and integrate this into lessons and after school activities which is absolutely acceptable.
