We take a great deal of pride and are incredibly passionate about teaching first aid, our aim and ethos is to keep our courses Affordable, Accessible and most importantly FUN.

“Really Informative and made learning First Aid Enjoyable” Gemma Sutcliffe – Lecturer

“Best Course I have done, really kept First Aid real and relevant” Mark Kaczmarek – Mine Technician

Unfortunately, First Aid in the past has had a bad reputation for being a tedious tick box exercise that employees had to take part in, the only good thing about it was that they got out of their general duties for a few days. We want to remove this unfair stigma and demonstrate that first aid is in fact interesting and enjoyable.
