 What First Aid Course is right for me?

Workplace First Aid

This can broadly be split into low risk and higher/high risk workplaces. We can provide  1-day Emergency First Aid at Work or 3-day First Aid at Work courses (as well as the 2-day requalification course) depending upon the level of risk at work and the size of your workforce at your site or office.

Outdoor First Aid

There are two available, an 8-hour Outdoor First Aid Emergency Action and a more detailed 16-hour Outdoor First Aid course. There is also an Advanced Outdoor First Aid course, however we do not run these. if you are interested, do get in touch and we will put you in touch with someone that does.

Paediatric First Aid

If you provide any form of childcare then you will almost certainly need either the 6-hour or 12-hour Paediatric Course. If you are hoping to provide First Aid skills to staff (e.g. lunchtime cover, after-school club staff) on top of your existing arrangements, then look at our First Aid for School Staff course.

Sports First Aid

If you are involved with Sports coaching then often the Emergency First Aid at Work will be sufficient for your needs, however we can also run First Aid courses wit a Sports bias to include (for instance) bone and soft tissue injuries.

First Aid At Home

Do you look after a child or baby whilst the parent(s) have to go out to work? In this day and age it is increasingly common for grandparents to act ‘in loco parents’ whilst a single parent has to work, or both parents have to work. Would you know what to do if the child or baby started choking or fitting?

Do you have elderly relatives or a child heading to University or College or embarking on a round-the-world gap year. Is your son or daughter picking up pocket money babysitting? Do you want an extra skill to put onto your Curriculum Vitae?

Do you have a pet and want to know more about Pet First Aid?

4 Minutes runs a number of courses that will prepare you or a relative for such emergencies. They are very informal, laid back non-certified courses and can be run at your own home (subject to space). Think of them as 21st Century Tupperware parties!

Bespoke First Aid

If what you want does not fit into anything above then look at our Bespoke courses as we can tailor something for you. We can run tailored courses of any duration to suit any need.

Where do you run First Aid courses?

Group Bookings. We run First Aid Courses all across the UK. We are based to the West of London in Berkshire and have a Network of Trainers across the United Kingdom in Scotland, England and Wales. If you are looking for a Private Booking, we can run it wherever you are. If you do not have enough for a full course, we can still run it as it may be more convenient for you anyway. Look at our courses & prices and if you want to go ahead, get in touch.

Individual places, If you are looking for an individual place, check out our Calendar page for courses. This lists all our public dates, so if your course type and location is not listed, we won’t be able to help you, sorry. It might be worth considering clubbing together with others for a private Group Booking, though.
