Our Courses

At First Aid Basics we aim to make first aid training interesting and enjoyable whilst ensuring our participants have the skills and confidence to provide first aid in an emergency.
Practical experience and scenarios form a large part of our training and and we encourage everyone to ‘have a go’.
We don’t shine a spotlight on you and put you under interrogation. Instead we offer helpful guidance, allow you to learn through self discovery and enable you to build the confidence that you can give first aid in an emergency.
We keep training simple and easy to follow and remember, without compromising the content.
Our scheduling is flexible to enable you to train times to suit and we offer both on and off site options.
