COVID-19 Update 20th March 2020

As a long standing or a new customer of STAC Training, your health, safety and wellbeing is paramount to us.

We have therefore made the difficult decision to suspend all training for the month of April due to the Covid 19 crisis.

As First Aid and Emergency Response Training is by its nature hands on, in order to maintain the high standard of training you have come to expect from STAC Training, we can not offer theses courses online. To do this would not provide you with the life saving skills you will need in the future.

In order to keep you up to date with developments here at STAC Training, we will keep in regular touch with you by email.

Frequent updates will be posted on our Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin pages.

We look forward to seeing you here soon for your training in Raheen or at your premises around the country.

Keep Safe and stay well.
