We are a professional independent organisation previously approved by the Health and Safety Executive for the conduct of Statutory First Aid education programmes and assessment under the “Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations.” The HSE stopped this in 2015. We provide courses to nationally recognised standards that often exceed the recommendations. We are based in Sussex, specialising in the supply of best value first aid education, first aid kits and supplies.

We comprise of a team of experienced and qualified staff. Our standards are second to none and believe that first aid is first and foremost, a practical activity, not an academic exercise. Perhaps unusually for other training organisations, each course is there to be enjoyed and not endured; first aid can be fun!

Our first aid trained employees are able to work with confidence and realise the extent of their responsibilities and knows how to access further assistance, as necessary.  Please note our courses are only suitable for adults and no exceptions can be made, whatever the circumstances; thank you for your understanding.
