The most popular sessions we arrange are Moving & Handling, Safeguarding, Infection Prevention, Safe Handling of Medication and Emergency First Aid at Work.

Feedback we receive from the PAs and employers after attending training is positive and often leads to further training.

“ DACE Cumbria arranged training for my whole team of PAs…the courses were very informative “  Elaine, Copeland

Courses we are currently running

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we now focus on providing our training online via e-learning. We offer a wide range of courses covering all of the topics relevant to the work of PAs.
