“The First Aid Guy is on a mission to teach you first aid in the very best way possible so that you have every confidence to help if and when the time comes.”
Hello and welcome to my website! I’ve been a first aid instructor for nearly two decades during which time I’ve taught Ofqual-regulated courses over 3,000 people, many of whom have gone on to save lives.
How I teach
Fundamental to my values as a first aid trainer is treating every single student as an individual. My learners are often surprised when within five minutes of a course starting I’ve memorised everyone’s names – and I don’t forget them (you can test me!) I listen attentively to everyone’s questions and answer them carefully and I love to hear students’ anecdotes, which are a great learning experience for me too. I’ll use interactive teaching techniques, not loads of Powerpoint, to keep everyone engaged and make sure they retain as much information as possible.
Sustainability is a big part of who I am and what I do. I come to you, starting courses either before or after the rush hour (most people prefer after) so people aren’t sitting in traffic jams with cars belching out fumes. If a course is within a reasonable distance I’ll get to you on my electric bike with my equipment in tow and I try to use a little plastic as possible, eg plastic free mannekin wipes etc…
Lastly I can guarantee you will pick up on my passion for first aid and you will have a fun day’s training!!
How I can help
I’m a one-man-band and as such I offer more flexibility than the bigger companies: as mentioned above I come to you or your business so there’s no need for people to be absent for a day or to pay their travel costs. I am available for weekend and evening courses too.
And I don’t just go to businesses, I teach at: schools (both teachers and pupils), in homes for families and childminders, opticians, doctors’ surgeries and dentists’, sports clubs, care homes and wherever I’m needed!
Please check out my video to see who you’ll be dealing with and how I can help.
As well as the accredited courses below, most often chosen by businesses I can offer bespoke courses eg for schools (First Aid For Schools is very popular), fitness centres, sports teams, medical settings etc …
