So you are booked onto a course with Lazarus Training, here’s what you need to know to get the most out of your course, what we call joining instructions.
This page covers the general joining instructions for our first aid courses, but we have also created additional pages to cover the slightly different requirements of some of our courses.
If you are attending a bespoke course, or we are coming to you, then you will received specific joining instructions for your course. Any doubts or questions give us a call on 0800 242 5210.
These joining instructions and details are valid for the courses we run at Dragon House on Stephenson Road during the week. There are different instructions for the weekend and evening courses.
We are at Dragon House, 28 Stephenson Road, Leigh on Sea, Essex, SS9 5LY.
There is limited free parking available onsite and across the industrial estate [although there are some yellow lines etc on the estate].
If you are coming by public transport the local bus company has a journey planner
The nearest train stations are Rayleigh on the London Liverpool Street- Southend Victoria line and Leigh on Sea on the Fenchurch Street- Shoeburyness line. For rail journeys you might want to check National Rail Planner
Courses typically start at 0930 during the week and 1000 at weekends. We ask that you arrive about 10-15 minutes before the course is due to start and report to the building’s reception. Here you will be meet and directed towards the training room.
All our first aid courses are highly practical so we advise that you wear old, comfortable clothing as you will be rolling around on the floor and many of our first aid courses include the use of fake blood. We use proper “stage” blood which is designed to wash off clothes, skin and hair, but it’s best to wear older clothing.
The course fees include refreshments such as tea, coffee and biscuits but lunch is not normally provided. There are small Tesco and CO-OP shops nearby and a KFC restaurant close by. During the week there is also an onsite snack bar called “Lunch Bunch” which provides a range of sandwiches and hot food.
Once you are on the course we love to hear how it’s going. You can “check in” on Facebook at Lazarus Training, tweet to us @lazarustraining and share your photos with us on instagram [again @lazarustraining].
If you have any specific questions or requirements which may impact the training, please contact us in advance on 0800 242 5210.
