We ♡ Turning People into Heroes

Emergencies happen.

On ordinary days, for ordinary people, life can change in a heartbeat.

In a heartbeat, it’s three o’clock in the morning and your neighbour is frantically knocking on your door because their toddler has stopped breathing and is turning blue.

In a heartbeat, you’re driving home from work, a cyclist has been knocked over and may have life-changing injuries, he’s someone’s Dad, and someone’s partner.

In a heartbeat, a teacher in a classroom has a child who is having a seizure and has knocked their head on the way down. They are drooling, blood coming from their mouth, and their eyes are rolling back.

Imagine being that neighbour, driver, or teacher. Can you imagine how scary that would be?
Imagine that you had absolutely no idea of what to do, never did first aid training, or let it go out of date. That is unthinkable to us.

We believe that no one should ever feel anything less than confident in dealing with an emergency. We will all have times in our lives when we are called upon to be a hero.

We’re on a mission to turn ordinary into extraordinary. To fill the UK with superheroes-on-standby, trained in a way that empowers them to help someone in need.

Our team of dedicated and passionate trainers are hero-makers. They teach skills and coach confidence, not just competence.

We’d like to welcome you onto our mission, there’s lots to do. Let’s get started.

A few of our favourite things...

No one should ever feel anything less than confident in dealing with an emergency. Our first aiders are taught confidence, not just competence on our realistic, engaging and relaxed courses.

Realistic, engaging and relaxed courses

By providing a relaxed training environment, delegates are more likely to interact and ask questions. This ensures that delegates go away feeling more confident and are therefore more prepared to help and assist with emergencies both inside and outside the workplace.

100% First Aider Money Back Confidence Guarantee

We guarantee that everyone who trains with us will leave as a confident first aider – or we will refund and retrain, so you can be assured that we are committed to the confidence of your workplace first aiders.

Defib Included as Standard on Every Course

With an increasing amount of defibs (AEDs) in workplaces and the community we train everyone to feel confident in using them. Together we are working towards reducing the 250 people that die every day of sudden cardiac arrest in the UK.

Over 98% of our First Aiders rate us as excellent

We're pretty proud of that. Our unique, realistic and engaging methods are designed all around first aider confidence.

Baby and child first aid covered as standard

Even if workplaces don’t have children in the workplace, delegates will be more engaged during courses knowing that this could help a family member, which increases their confidence.

HSE and UK Resuscitation Council Compliant

You can be assured that your training meets all the necessary guidelines and regulations. So first aiders always know how to act appropriately in an emergency.

Over 98% of our delegates rate our courses as excellent.

We're pretty proud of that!


Great course! Tutor used great method of training with visual, writing and practical demonstrations. Class was a perfect size. Really pleased I attended and would not hesitate in signing up to a SkillBase course again because of this experience.



I thought the course was great - well delivered, very informative, went home and remembered important elements! Book was fantastic and user friendly, will deffo be back!



The best delivery of a first aid course I have experienced so far. Previous courses have been boring and delivery poor. This was of a much higher standard, more interesting. And the instructor engaged us, and it was very practical. Thank you very much.
