First Aid


That Really Matters

First aid training

We're a First Aid Training company that’s a little bit different.

Our philosophy is simple: learning should be as enjoyable as it is impactful. All our trainers are experienced clinicians with decades of hands-on experience, allowing us to transform conventional text-based education into captivating stories and practical wisdom. They’re not just experts – they’re storytellers, humourists, and engaging educators that turn dull days in the classroom into memorable, life-changing experiences.

How We Work

Training From Front Line Experience

Convenient Venues

Flexibility is one of our core values, and we want to offer you the most suitable venue for your training. If you have ten or more delegates, or are happy to welcome additional outside delegates, we can deliver on-site training for you. Alternatively, we can arrange convenient off-site options.

Engaging Methods

Our training is as enjoyable as it is educational, with our trainers sharing lots of their real-life experience, blending humour with practical knowledge. Through videos, real-life scenarios, and interactive group work, we create an exceptional learning environment for our delegates.

Practical Trainers

All our trainers are seasoned professionals, primarily Paramedics, with a wealth of practical experience. They train from real-life situations, not just from a book. The hints and tips that you won’t find in the training manual prepare our delegates for the real world of helping people in crisis.

Memorable Material

The sole purpose of First Aid training is to prepare for emergency treatment – training must be memorable to be useful. Our engaging methods ensure key skills are remembered and applied effectively, because at the end of the day, it's not about ticking boxes, it’s about saving lives!
