Is this course online or face to face?
Here at The National Academy of Specialist Cleaners we only offer face-to-face training. We believe that face to face training is more beneficial than online learning when it comes to specialist cleaning. We believe this because here at NASC you will have the opportunity to discuss real life scenarios with an experienced trauma and biohazard cleaning operative. You may also get the chance to discuss business with a trauma and biohazard business owner. During the course you will get introduced to real life products, PPE, and you will get cleaning equipment demonstrations with explanations. Here at The National Academy of Specialist Cleaners you will get a hands-on learning experience.
How can I do this course?
At The National Academy of Specialist Cleaners, you have the option of completing the murder clean up training course through either a one-day course (unattended death clean up training course), or through our 3-day trauma and biohazard cleaning course.
If you choose to complete the murder clean up training course over one day, you will have a morning session of completing the course and exam, then in the afternoon you will go over to The National Academy of Specialist Cleaners practical training facilities. In the practical training facility, you will come face to face with scenarios that you could face in the real world, and you will learn how to approach these scenarios professionally and safely as well as how to complete the specialist cleaning of a death that has occurred by a murder.
If you choose to complete the murder clean up training course as a part of the 3-day trauma and biohazard course, you will also be completing other modules such as Bloodborne pathogens training, needles and sharps training, hoarding and clearance training, and pigeon guano clean up training.
What is CPD?
Continuing Professional Development is a commitment to ongoing lifelong learning. CPD encourages looking forward and identifying opportunities to learn something new, refresh existing knowledge, improve skills, or simply keep up to date with the latest developments within a particular profession or industry.
The National Academy of Specialist Cleaners are based in Little Walden, Essex.
Here at NASC we have two training facilities. We have our classroom where all the classroom-based learning of the modules will take place, this is where you will complete the course, do the exams and be shown examples of chemicals, PPE and equipment demonstrations that will be needed when taking part in this specialist cleaning sector.
Then we also have our practical training facility, this is where you will take what you have learnt in the classroom and put it to the test. Here you will be faced with life-like scenarios that you could face when you venture out into this specialist cleaning sector. Here you will get help and support from the trainers on how to complete these works properly and safely with experienced trauma and biohazard cleaners on site giving you the best advice and tips on how to do this.
If you are a large group between 6 – 12 candidates, and you have adequate facilities for us to come and deliver the this course. We are more than happy to come to your premises to deliver the course for you.
