A CHARITY teaching life-saving skills is set to open a new base in Redditch.
From September 17, St John Ambulance will be offering workplace first aid courses at the Business Centre in Edward Street.
John Cavanagh, regional director of the organisation's commercial training division, said the town was an ideal location to help meet demand in Worcestershire and south of Birmingham.
"It will make St John Ambulance training courses more accessible and we hope that it will encourage employers to help their staff learn the skills that can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
"Not only crucial in the workplace, the skills we teach are life skills are our courses are the best available. We have numerous examples of people who have been sent on workplace first aid courses only to find their knowledge has helped them to save the life of a family member or act confidently in an emergency."
