First Aid Courses

 

We offer a wide range of first aid courses from The Health and Social Care Training Academy in Waterhouse Business Centre in Chelmsford which is easily accessible from the A12, M11 and M25.  We are very near the centre of Chelmsford and have lots of free parking. 

We are senior nurses registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council so we simulate real type emergencies and teach how to care for very sick and distressed vulnerable adults and children. We pass on our expert skills to help you recognise when someone is becoming unwell and how to cope quickly and calmly. Not every casualty needs an ambulance but for those who do, we will teach you to triage effectively.

Training should be fun so we don’t embarrass you and ask you to perform role play ! We only have a maximum of 10 people training at once to make sure you have lots of our time and encouragement. Press on the titles below to view our courses and book:

 

 

We specialise in tailoring training to suit your needs and can also deliver all our training courses at your premises. We just need to make sure that you have the suitable amount of space required to have a good learning experience and fulfil assessment criteria so when booking we will ask for room sizes and access etc just to make sure.

If you would like to discuss your requirements for training then please try our easy to use calculator or contact us.
