Surrey First Aid Training has been delivering exceptional quality approved first aid training course for over a decade. It was started by Paramedic Andy Griffiths in 2000 with Jane Pearce, now our Company Director. Andy believed that people lacked confidence to step in and help in an emergency. Surrey First Aid Training has gone on to trained over 55,000 first aiders in the workplace and community in life saving skills.
We consider ourselves leading experts in first aid in the workplace and over the years have seen many changes to the first aid industry. Not only do we pass on our knowledge on the courses we run, we do our best to keep our customers up to date through our newsletters and we support many of the local charities whose job it is to save lives.
Our trainers are from a range of backgrounds including medics, nurses, fireman and doctors. All of them have been delivering first aid training for over 5 and are 100% committed to teaching such an important skill in a fun and interactive way. We truly believe in first aid.
We always say “first aid is for everyone but if you are in the workplace confidence comes from competence and competence comes from training”.
Our administration team are on hand both before and after to offer support and guidance on any aspect of the training course you have enrolled onto. We will answer all your questions, reassure your delegates and follow up afterwards to make sure everyone enjoyed their course
