We founded Oakley Services UK Limited in Basingstoke, Hampshire, in 2007.
After many years working in the First Aid training sector we noticed that there was a disregard to how people were being taught to deal with real medical emergencies. They were mainly being taught ‘out of a book’ by trainers who did not actually have experience of dealing with front line situations. The message they conveyed was that injuries were either ‘black or white.’ But, as we know, people are not all the same and injuries present themselves in different ways for different people.
This got us to thinking about other training courses that were also being taught in this way. After thorough research, we gradually began to add further training courses for businesses that needed practical training solutions for their employees – e.g. for safety and technical elements, and so their organisation would be fully regulated and compliant.
Our vision is and will always be to ensure that all of our clients have access to relevant and practical solution based assessment, consultancy, development and training - whenever and wherever they need it. We fully understand the importance of treating each client as an individual, which is why we consistently respond to their individual needs and requirements.
Our team of carefully chosen experts have a tremendous wealth of knowledge and experience in their chosen field, and they work closely with our clients to enable them to achieve their goals within their required timescales.
We all take great pride in passing our knowledge and enthusiasm onto our course delegates. We believe that by doing this we will become the provider of choice by providing practical based skills that are not currently on offer anywhere else. By achieving this we will build a sustainable and respected business with year on year growth which in turn will help businesses become better at what they do.
“Feedback from all nine of the first aiders that have just had their refresher training has been excellent. All have said it was the most enjoyable and informative first aid training that they have received.”
