We're actually more interested in you and what your training requirements are so we can better support you and protect your business. If you'd like to find out a bit more about us though, please read on.
Why Life Saving Training?
We're hell-bent on delivering outstanding quality in a cost effective way. All our courses are well thought out, always bang up up to date, well resourced and we’re consistently told our courses are the best around. Why not read a few of these reviews to see just a few of the many nice things people have to say?
We train a variety of organisations — large and small, across a range of high to low hazard sectors and environments like offices, schools, in engineering, manufacturing and construction, in sport or the great outdoors.
We’re based in Newcastle upon Tyne in the North East and travel throughout the UK to deliver in-house training and qualifications in First Aid and Health & Safety. We also use local training venues to suit different courses and you can book our most popular first aid training courses online, as well as access our wide range of Health & Safety eLearning courses. Now that's convenience!
Working with us means you'll get more than just the average. See below for some of the unique benefits you'll receive.
Life Saving Training is approved to deliver regulated qualifications which means you don’t need to perform due diligence checks. By choosing us, you can be sure that all due diligence checks are automatically satisfied. Simply book with us, and know you’re covered.
We meet all the requirements set out by the Health and Safety Executive, and go even further to ensure you get the very best training available. Confident, effective employees also go a long way to reducing the risks of injuries and illnesses occurring and of work time being lost.
Our engaging and dynamic approach helps you learn and remember the skills you need. You’ll get lots of practice dealing with incidents in our safe training environment. Practicing in this way helps make the skills automatic, so you’ll know what to do in a real first aid emergency.
We use simple processes to help you to manage whole incidents with confidence. We're passionate about everyone receiving outstanding training that gives them the skills and confidence to help in real life situations. Otherwise, what's the point?
You'll have access to the latest resources which help make learning interesting. For example, there'll be one manikin between a maximum of two and everyone gets the chance to use a defibrillator/AED on all our courses. We take manikin hygiene seriously too, because your health is important.
We pride ourselves on top notch customer service and we make a point of being on hand to help our customers throughout the life cycle of their certifications. We're also registered with the Information Commissioners Office to comply with Data Protection Legislation. Reference: ZA035453.

Who needs First Aid Training?
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 tell us that employers have a legal duty to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. It doesn’t matter whether the injury or illness is caused by the work they do, what is important is that they receive immediate attention. These regulations state that a person shall not be ‘suitable’ unless they have undergone such training and have such qualifications as may be appropriate in the circumstances.
