Can I book my own closed training (= teacher comes to us)?

Yes, you can also do that through the booking platform: www.bedrijfsopleidingen.rodekruis.be

Which Corporate Training is best for me to choose?

It is best to ask yourself first if you are looking for legally required training or not. The basic training company first aid, first aid for designated persons and the refresher courses fit within the legal framework. If you want to organize a first aid course separately from these, it is best to choose, depending on your needs, a thematic or initiation lesson. If you are looking for a course that focuses on First aid for mental health problems , it is best to choose one of the FAMP courses.
