We deliver interactive, practical and interesting indoor and outdoor first aid courses both on the Isle of Wight and mainland to individuals, outdoor centres, schools, office staff and many other groups. We also work with groups of young offenders, young carers, pupil referral units and disabled young people, offering specially tailored programmes.

We provide a full range of HSE approved first aid courses, but are also deliverers of the very well respected Rescue Emergency Care First Aid Award Courses – these are HSE approved first aid awards but have been designed to be delivered in a very practical way with an emphasis on situations that are away from immediate help, so are ideal for all those who find that the standard HSE type first aid course is not entirely relevant.

What makes our first aid courses unique on the Isle of Wight?

  • We are education professionals who like to make our courses as much fun as possible.
  • We have an in-depth knowledge of our subject beyond the courses we run and have much real world experience.
  • As far as we can tell, we offer the widest range of first aid courses on the Isle of Wight.
  • Our courses are based on a practical approach, and on giving you an understanding of why you are doing what you are doing.
  • All participants receive high quality certificates valid for 3 years.
We make sure all scenarios are put in context in order to aid skill development

Our student centred approach means we will tailor our courses to meet the needs of participants. The training and scenarios are designed to progressively challenge group members in the environment they are likely to need the skills. We endeavour to make it all as realistic as possible, incorporating as wide a range of environments as possible to facilitate varied practice – this allows participants to not learn by rote, but to be able to adapt and deal with real situations as they occur.
