A Brief History

Where We Started

First aid Bristol is a family run business that has been training people in first aid for over 15 years. It was started by Indie Lyndale who has spent 30 years working as a teacher, lecturer, mountain leader and outdoor instructor.

During her time working in various institutions she experienced boring and tenuous first aid training on countless occasions. This made her realise there needed to be a different way! First aid training should be exciting and engaging. Its serious stuff and when you need to act you need to be able to deal with potentially stressful situations. Sitting there through long, boring training sessions reading from work books is not going to teach you anything.

An engaging approach

With this in mind Indie started First Aid Bristol. Bringing together her extensive experience working in the outdoors and as a teacher she created courses that will teach you real skills. All of our courses follow the strict guidelines and syllabus as outlined by the 'Health & Safety Executive' (HSE). We also offer a wide range of Ofqual regulated courses should you need this service..

We make every one of our courses practical and engaging by using scenarios to practice the various subjects and modules covered. This enables people to put what they have learnt into practice. This is fun and requires people to think on their feet without putting anyone on the spot to get things wrong. We practice together and everybody gets something positive from these sessions.

Everyone who comes on our course leaves invigorated and many have contacted us further down the line to tell us there stories of how they have been able to deal with situations since their training.
