Looking for First Aid Training?
Covid-19 update 1 Feb 2021:
Workplace, Outdoor and Paediatric courses – Yes, both public and private
Public Pet and family – No, sorry. It’s not essential training
Baby & Child 2hr private Booking over Zoom – Yes
Furlough: Are you a furloughed Worker or have you furloughed your staff? Did you know that furloughed staff can attend training courses without it affecting their furlough status? Why not use this time to catch up on training?
Is 4 Minutes open for First Aid Training?
We are open and running as normally as can be expected. Extra distancing and hygiene processes are in place but as long as you have the space we can train you. Numbers on public courses at our Centre are currently limited to 6, so if you want a course, do book on quickly as places disappear rapidly (Private Bookings can still be up to 12 depending upon your room size).
We look forward to welcoming you back.

What First Aid Course is right for me?
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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 advertise the spare spaces and share the income from any sold.
Individual places, If you are looking for an individual place, check out our Calendar page for courses. If your location and course is not listed, do email us and we will add you to our waiting list, however this will tend to be spare places on private courses so difficult to forecast.
