KANDO FIRST AID TRAINING IN THE HSE DE-REGULATED SECTORhttp://kandoconsulting.co.uk/statement_1.php Due to recent allegations against Kando Consulting and IQ First Aid, we have decided to release an initial statement that will both clarify our position and answer the concerns raised. This has become particularly important in light of the fact that AoFAQ have badly mishandled the malpractice investigation into IQ First Aid and subsequent complaints. Our concerns are so great that we have had no choice but to elevate the entire matter to Of qual, their regulatory body, for an independent investigation. They have confirmed this is happening. Therefore, at this time, David Arnold is not able to speak with any authority about IQ First Aid or Kando.
Kando Consulting • There is no requirement to be registered with any AO body as the entire first aid sector is currently de-regulated. This means that the Level 3 Instructor training courses that we offer are subject to our own high standards and meet the Health & Safety Act 1981 criteria for first aid training. We keep those standards very high by ensuring that we only engage the most highly qualified training instructors to carry out comprehensive first aid training programs. • IQ First Aid certificates are embedded in our instructor program and referred to as such in the agreements with our trainers. All trainees who have gained a pass on our course have therefore achieved the FAW Level 3 certificate of achievement as approved by our SVQ Level 4 Trainer/Approver status.
