Not all those seeking knowledge in first aid are doing so to meet legal requirements or because First Aid is necessary for their occupations. Many people in our communities are interested in having basic skills in first aid so that they will know how to act if necessary in the event of injury or illness to loved ones, children, friends, pupils etc. The following are 1 and 2 day courses which offer some basic but ultimately life saving knowledge to everyone.
1 day specially designed courses which give teachers the skills to deal with emergencies that may occur during school hours.

We all want to be able to act to help loved ones, friends or members of the community. 1 and 2 day Basic First Aid courses give people important skills that lead to a safer home and community.
Experience has taught us that children and young people are among the most confident learners. Used to soaking up information, once they learn basic first aid skills, youngsters show far less hesitation than adults when dealing with emergencies. This 1 day course delivered at the school gives young people life-saving knowledge and ensures that they know what to do while waiting for an adult to take over.
