Which first aid course is right for me?

There are loads of first aid courses out there. Some of them will be right for you, some won’t. To try to help make things easier for you, I’ve listed all of the first aid courses that we offer, broken down by who they’re for, and where you might use them. For example, if you’re a childminder, then you might choose to do the emergency paediatric first aid course. If you’re looking to extend your skill base, then there are several courses to help you do that. And so on.

Ultimately you need to undertake a first aid needs assessment to help you determine the level of training that you need to undertake. When you’ve determined which course is right for you, simply click on the course title to read more information about it and to book your place.

If you get to the bottom of the page & you’re still unsure which course you should attend, please feel free to contact us to discuss your needs. Whichever course you choose to book on, I look forward to seeing you there soon.
