As an employers it is now commonplace to have first aid trained staff. This is to guarantee a safe working environment for both your staff and your clients.
Depending on your business you can have very different first aid requirements so we have various first aid courses to choose form.
As of 2013 the HSE made changes that primarily put onus on the individual or employer to establish the most relevant first aid qualification for your particular environment and needs.
To establish the most relevant route for you or your business you should start with a risk assessment. This should highlight the most obvious areas of danger and from there the right course should be clear.
If you are unsure please get in touch and we will help point you in the right direction however we cannot provide legal advice and it will be up to you to make the final decision on which course you need.
All of our first aid courses comply with the latest guidelines from the Resuscitation Council UK and the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidance on First Aid 2016.

Had to do our refresher First Aid Course for our taekwondo group. I must say how relaxed the atmosphere was. I enjoyed the course emensly and I think the group left feeling like they have gathered a lot of information the best one I have attended to date. Very informative and relaxed atmosphere. A massive thankyou to Trevor for making everyone at ease the way he presented the course. I will definitely be attending for the refresher in 3 years. Thankyou Trevor Regards Noel MDSTKD

Attended a Training course found the staff very patient and friendly. There is no parking available but they can subsidise if you park in the near by Gardener Haskins as long as you show your parking ticket. I will advise that if you do attend any of there training courses bring your own packed lunch or a local sainsburys/Tesco's is available about 10 minutes walk. I do strongly recommend anyone wishing to learn first aid or sports massage to look First Aid Bristol up.
Really good and informative emergency first aid course with lots of hands on practical scenarios. Luis and Georgina are really good professional instructors and made everyone feel very welcome. Met and had a laugh with some lovely people on the course too which was a bonus. I’ll def be back for a refresher course in the future.
The course was run by Indie and also Georgie on the first day. The presenters were knowledgeable and helpful, going at a pace that made the learning accessible and being free to answer questions we had. They made it clear that we were not being trained to be paramedics and so focused on what one should reasonably try to do in a first aid situation. They frequently repeated the key skills we needed to remember and there was a good mix of classroom and practical to reinforce what we were being taught. I was on this course as a DofE volunteer and came away feeling reassured that I had the basic skills required.
I have just finished the Outdoor First Aid course. I have done a lot of basic life support classes working with the NHS. This is hands down the absolute best training I have done and so much more effective. It’s really interactive, taught at a pace that is not too fast and not to slow, and with the variety of props used to create scenarios, it’s also really fun! Would 100% recommend.

Absolutely brilliant first aid course, really interactive. Lukasz kept our full class engaged and helpfully referenced scenarios suitable for our workplace. An excellent, educational day! Thanks so much First Aid Bristol
My husband and I attended a childrens first aid course with Trevor recently through First Aid Bristol. We brought our 6 month old along. Trevor was really informative and engaging and, seen as we were the only attendees that day, he was really willing to answer all our questions and be flexible for us. Great company, good venue with tea and coffee and parking. Would recommend !
We used First Aid Bristol to renew our first aid certificates for our martial arts instructors badges. Having searched for a long time and only ever finding courses with ridiculous cost involved we came across First Aid Bristol who were extremely good value for money, extremely flexible and helpful with arranging the date. We even managed to get a Saturday booking which meant nobody had to take time off work which was perfect! Our trainer Trevor helped make a long day interesting and go quickly. Lots of very important learning took place but at the same time lots of laughter was had throughout the day so that it was enjoyable. We are now qualified for3 years but had already expressed our interest to go back in 3 years to renew again and will be recommending our other friends instructors in Bristol to come to you when needed. Thank you
Thanks again for a fantastic course - I have to take a 2-day outdoor course every year or so as part of my snowsports instructor qualification, and can honestly say this is the best I've attended. A great setting, good value - and I particularly enjoyed Indie the instructor; her relaxed style, combined with her years working with people in the mountains (with a multitude of real-life first aid experiences) made for an incredibly rich and insightful course. Really refreshing! Thanks again, highly recommended and I will be back when it is time to renew.
I thought Indie was so articulate in delivering the emergency First Aid Course at Work, her dulcet tones are calming. Indie really took her time in explaining each module and welcomed questions and, didn’t mind how many questions were being asked. I really enjoyed the scenarios too and it was nice that Indie could relate that we can all forget how to do things when we don’t do them often. The book is really useful and I try to read this at least once a week to keep myself familiarised. Thank you very much.
