How are our courses delivered?

All of our courses are hands-on. We’ll show you how to do something – then you’ll have a go. We’ll practice how to deal with whole incidents, from finding someone in need to the point where they’re handed over to the professionals. After all, when someone becomes ill or is injured, you’ll need to manage the whole incident – not just be able to perform a couple of stand alone skills.

What our customers say

“This course was really informative and relative to my job role. The guy who delivered it was really knowledgable and happy to answer everyone’s questions. I’ve been on many similar courses over the years and this was by far one of the best. I would definitely recommend these guys at our schools for staff courses in the future”.

Hayley G, Child Minder

“The course has a very good balance of practical and theory and knowledge was tested in very non threatening ways! Thanks!”

Clive W, Caedmon Primary School

“My main reason for attending this course was the arrival of my first grandchild and the realisation that if God forbid I was faced with an emergency situation I would be totally clueless and unable to help my grandchild. Thanks to the excellent training I was given I now feel confident that not only could I help my grandson but I could also give emergency life saving aid to any child or adult. I would recommend this course to everyone. To all mothers, fathers and grandparents please invest in this course it could save someone's life who is very precious to you.”
