About ASTS

A Brief Company Profile

This is a brief introduction to our company, who we are, what we do and our continuing efforts to be a leading organisation in the field of first aid training, SIA Security training and fire training industries, maintaining control and professionalism along the way.

To this end we achieved accreditation 3 years ago by meeting the quality standards required to meet ISO 9001. We believe we were one of the first security-based organisations in the UK to achieve this internationally recognised standard of quality.

The Background History
Advanced Safety Training Services was formed in 1992 and has maintained a steady growth since then.

The ASTS concept is simple. Professional training, run by professional trainers, for professional people, striving to maintain the excellent standards already achieved in the fields of first aid training, fire training and security training, that ASTS has built its reputation on.

Advanced Security
We have been providing trained, professional security personnel to such companies as First Leisure, Bass, JD Wetherspoon, Yates''s Wine Lodges and A.M.F. Bowling for over 14 years.

The Door Supervisors we supply are trained to the latest national standards and licensed to meet with the new SIA legislation.

Door Supervision Course

For those working in pubs, clubs and other leisure venues.

Every single member of the Advanced Security team has been trained to the SIA standard and holds a current SIA license to work in the UK

ASTS maintains full ongoing public liability insurance cover with Camberford and Law.

Advanced Safety Training Services
Originally set up to run the local authority Door Supervisor courses, we quickly gained accreditation with the H.S.E to teach and examine all forms of First Aid training along with Fire & Evacuation training, and now all current forms of security training through our Edexcel accreditation.

First Aid Training

ASTS provide First Aid training to the latest company legal requirements. ASTS First Aid Training is dedicated to providing individuals and companies with the most up to date teaching available in the field of primary first aid training.

All businesses are required to have provided at least one first aid trained member of staff (depending on the size of the company) under the Health & Safety First Aid Training Regulations 1981. Failure to comply could lead to prosecution. So, as you can see, all employers have a duty to provide first aid training to their staff. Our courses include first aid training courses in:

  • First aid at work (3 day)
  • First aid at work refresher (2 day)
  • Appointed person first aid ( ½ or 1 day)
  • First aid training for Child care workers (1 day or 2 day)

AED Training
Teaching First Aiders in the use of Defibrillation equipment.

Fire & Evacuation
Fire safety training awareness, Fire Marshall training & information on the latest fire safety regulatory reform order, including our Fire risk assessment service.

SIA Security Training
Through our Edexcel accreditation ASTS can now offer the full range of SIA security qualifications, including:

  • Door Supervision Training
  • Manned Guarding Training
  • CCTV Training
  • Close Protection Training

Our client base for the Training Services area of our business is steadily growing. We have supplied training courses in the fields of First Aid, Manual Handling & Fire Safety on a regular basis to organisations such as BMI (including H.M. Prison Service), CAPITA, Marconi Services, The Lord Chancellor''s Department, Cabinet Office, Tate & Lyle, London Fire Brigade, Vosper Thorneycroft and many smaller organisations all over the U.K.

We strive to achieve recognition for professionalism in every area of our business. In the venues we provide security for, we aim for maximum safety for our own employees, the venue and their staff by providing a solid regular door team and ensuring full communication and co-operation between our own personnel, the venue and the local authorities.

Through our training services we strive for professionalism by employing the best trainers available, always emphasising the practical aspects & tailoring our courses to suit the area of trade or industry our client organisation is involved in so that their employees receive the most useful knowledge possible, rather than simply regurgitating textbook information from the front of the training room.

Through creating a slow steady expansion throughout the nineties, we have been able to maintain control and are ideally positioned to continue into the 21st Century, growing from strength to strength.
