About Us

As an emergency service we have a very unique offering. All of our courses are led by ambulance clinicians and first aid instructors who can apply their real-life skills and experiences when teaching you.

All of our instructors are trained to teach in the work environment and understand the need to meet the practical requirements of the workplace. Our courses are on the OFQUAL framework and we are proud that the money generated from our courses gets invested back into your local emergency service.

Medical emergencies can happen to anyone at any time. Learning essential first aid gives you the skills to make a real difference to a patient in those critical first few minutes of an emergency, while the ambulance service is on their way.

Please contact us if you require a bespoke course and we would be happy to discuss your needs.
