Confidence is our weapon of choice. Here's how we do it...

Realistic, engaging and relaxed first aid 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.

One of the reasons that over 98% of the 100,000+ first aiders we have trained rate us as excellent.

Call our team on 0330 335 1234 to find the best course for you.

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.

We're on a mission to fill the UK with Superheroes-on-Standby!
