First Aid Courses and First Aid Training

Below you can find details about the First Aid courses we run. We run Open First Aid Courses for individuals to gain a first aid qualification or to renew, or revalidate, an existing qualification. These open courses can be viewed below each course type, or can be quickly selected to the right using our 'open course selector'.

We also run first aid courses at your work place or venue for your staff. By taking this option, it means that your staff members learn the same skills at the same time, and it can be less expensive than sending each staff member to open courses. The prices below are valid for the Midlands area, prices may vary in other areas of the UK, please contact us for details.

Our instructors use only the best equipment and provide realistic training. Our courses are based on a maximum of either 12 or 15 candidates per instructor. However, if you have more than 12 or 15 candidates we can still accommodate this by providing an extra instructor.
