The two day course runs from 9am until 5pm each day, with a lunch break between the morning and afternoon sessions.

We recommend that you bring your own lunch, as not all venues have food outlets on site or nearby.

Delivered in a classroom setting, this course offers a practical, hands-on approach that delivers the skills and confidence to use first aid skills in a real life situation. For added reassurance, each learner is assessed throughout the course using a range of practical demonstrations, question and answer sessions, quizzes and engaging activities designed to coach and support them.

To ensure you get the most effective learning experience, learners must be physically able to participate and we limit group size to 12 people.

The course also includes basic adult first aid skills, details on accident reporting and administering medication for those working in a childcare setting.

Off site training has proven useful for us, I would say it is on par with other companies I have used in the past as the training is very similar. I am 100% happy with the level of customer service provided and the amount of information was very good as well as it being very well organised.

We have only used yourselves and are happy with what we have received. The service we receive is excellent and we would recommend to other companies. There is nothing I would change about the service as we are very happy, you are our chosen first aid course provider.

The course itself was a really interactive, informative and fun course to attend. The trainer was knowledgeable and imparted this knowledge in a fun way (as fun as it can be!) This makes it ‘stick’ more I find. We really enjoyed the course.

I want to commend our trainer, Gemma, on a fabulously paced, informative and engaging course day. Evidently the material provided from Hello First Aid was well structured already, but Gemma brought this content to life. She never rushed, and allowed plenty of time for questions, while keeping speed to make sure we were still absorbed in the course.
Gemma was a joy to learn from, very bubbly, but also gave me confidence in the techniques and information I was learning. I now feel confident to perform Emergency First Aid where other courses I have attended have left me feeling uncertain and doubting my abilities, despite passing the course. Thank you to Gemma!

I really enjoyed doing the First Aid Course at the centre, the tutor was great and always answered any questions we had, good practical acting scenarios took place which helped us to think better of how we would react to an emergency in real life. Great info and left confident to be a first aider in any situations that I might be faced with.

I attended the First Aid Training course with Hello First Aid earlier this year. I enjoyed the day. It was interactive, taught with humour and sensitivity and there was lots of hands-on practice of the key skills required to deal with a life-threatening emergency. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a training programme that will give you confidence to deal with whatever situation you might come across at work or in life.
