Three Day Principles and Practice Course
If you are looking to become a first aid instructor to train independently or for your workplace, this is the ideal course for you. You don’t need to have previous experience of teaching first aid, as this course will give you all the skills you need to teach a range of lively and engaging courses...
Unique Course With Real Delegates
This unique course allows you to individually join a live First Aid course. You will be given the opportunity to lead some topics, giving you the experience of developing your skills with live delegates rather than a room full of other instructors.
This ensures that you receive the time, quality and support needed from the Training Quality Specialist.
- Vast experience of one of our Training Quality Specialists
- Valuable experience with real delegates on a live First Aid course
- All about confidence building, and understanding the knowledge of all the rules and regulations set by all of the relevant authorities
The first day of the course will take place at the start of the month and will hold up to six trainee instructors. You will all be taught about a range of training methods on how to best teach First Aid, and you will be able to put these skills into practice when you attend the live course.
The second day of the course is where you will join a live First Aid course. You will also assist in training a few course elements under the guidance of one of our existing First Aid Instructors. You will be given the opportunity to lead some topics, giving you the experience of developing your skills with live delegates rather than a room full of other instructors.
Coming back to the group on the third and final day of the course you will cover further training experience, the options available to you to keep your training compliant, course administration, managing resources, managing difficult delegates, assessment skills, along with a range of useful and valuable guidance from our experienced Training Quality Specialist.

I have just finished my 3 day first aid course at Skill Base. The course was great fun and the facilities were excellent. It was a great environment and all the staff are very friendly. I would highly recommend Skill Base.
WOW!!! Been on quite a few first aid courses over the years, this one was very different, the trainer was amazing. The course content was very relevant to what we could encounter in everyday life, it was put over to us in a fun and practical way.
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.
Can't fault anything about Skillbase. Fabulous venue and fantastic trainers and office team. Top notch service all around. Would give 10 stars if I could.
Great requal course over two days, professional and informative - it's given me back confidence for first aid responding. Good service all round from initial booking to completion.
