At First Response Training, we are especially passionate about delivering superb First Aid training throughout the UK. Current ambulance waiting times are over 9 minutes for life-threatening emergencies; we all become safer as more members of the public become first aiders. Our First Aid courses cover a range of topics and are available as introductory courses for beginners or advanced courses for those with existing First Aid training.
With over 100 trainers in England, Scotland and Wales, we can provide in-person, practical First Aid training at your location of choice. All of our trainers are highly qualified and experienced. Many volunteer in their spare time as emergency responders, which keeps their skills sharp. Once you have chosen your courses, your account manager will be in touch and take care of all the logistics such as venues and equipment.
We have First Aid eLearning, classroom training and webinars available. Most of the courses below include some form of practical assessment, and so must take place face-to-face. However, webinar versions of these courses may be available if necessary. Both classroom and webinar courses are led by a qualified instructor. Our eLearning course can be completed in the learner's own time.
