Our Courses

Learn first aid for your everyday life

We offer a range of first aid courses for people over the age of 16 who want to learn first aid for their everyday life, rather than as a requirement of their job*. 

They cover first aid for babies and children (from birth to puberty) and adults (puberty onwards) and are available at venues across the UK, or at a location to suit you if you have a group of up to 15 people.

You don't need to have any previous experience; just a willingness to learn and take part in practical exercises (led by our friendly trainers) which build your confidence in dealing with emergency scenarios.

* If you need first aid training to meet health and safety requirements, please see our workplace first aid courses.
