First aid courses for the general public

The right course for you

We offer training courses for members of the public. The courses differ slightly, but each of them will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to deal with both minor incidents and major emergencies, such as severe bleeding, heart attacks, choking and an unresponsive casualty who has stopped breathing.  

Group training is available at the premises of your choice.  All attendees will be continually assessed by a trainer, and receive a certificate of attendance.
