About Us

First Aid Basics was born out of a passion for teaching and sharing knowledge, a frustration of the ‘dull’ perception of the  image of first aid training and general day to day experience of being a mother to 2 fearless young children!

The First Aid Basics philosophy is all about having a go and building the confidence to care. First Aid is a practical skill so all our courses have plenty of hands on practice and ‘have a go’ scenarios. We appreciate that perfection isn’t always achievable and that adequate care provided is better than perfect care withheld

We don’t recruit staff based on how many letters they have after their name, or the number of ‘ologys’  they possess. We recruit our team based on their teaching capabilities and most importantly their real passion for first aid and sharing information. We believe that a few hours of their time could make a difference to your life or the life to those around you. All our team are certified Emergency First Response Instructors so have qualified  to the highest level, and have experience teaching the full range of programs.

Our trainer was fantastic. He encouraged us and remained positive throughout

Shelley, Nursery

The most interesting and informative course I have been on, relaxed and enjoyable.

Drama Workshops, London

Good pace. Trainer brought his knowledge of the real world into his training. Easy to understand and plenty of times to ask questions.

Primary School, Guildford

All aspects useful. The course was very good, focusing on the important parts without mindless frills. The trainer was very experienced and an excellent trainer.

Building Firm, Surbiton

Loved the course, very informative and fun too. Covered more in this course than friends did on theirs. Chris was excellent, really knew the material well and made ‘getting it wrong’ a learning experience. Will use you again in 3 years time.



I was a little nervous attending this course alone but I should not have worried the instructors made us all feel relaxed. I have attended first aid courses before before but they simply did not compare to yours. The training has given me so much confidence and the way it was taught was simply brilliant. Lots of examples and scenarios made the information easy to remember. Would highly recommend 🙂 Will book again in 3 years time!

Well done and many thanks on a great course

Many thanks for all the good and clear instructions. The course covered a good balance of skills to help in any first aid situation. I did use these on my son who has just turned 1 yr . He was choking on a chair protective pad that stops chairs rubbing on the floor! Happens so quick and thank goodness I had the confidence and knew what to do! And I remembered the follow up medical care. Just on a final happy note all is well and with two very young children in the house it’s good to know . Well done and many thanks on a great course . I will definitely be booking with you again. Many thanks
