Why take a First Aid course?

We believe everyone should learn basic first aid so they have the confidence to help when needed. Correctly applied first aid techniques can, quite simply, save lives. They can also lessen pain and help reduce healing time. Completing a first aid course:-

  • provides you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to act in an emergency;
  • could help you decide whether to pursue a career in healthcare and show commitment when applying for jobs or training;
  • enables you to create a safe working environment and meet your workplace’s safety requirements.


Where we train

Courses can take place at our Boxley campus or at your own place of work if suitable facilities are available.

Boxley is just 5 minutes from Maidstone town centre. It has good access to road links and plenty of free on-site parking. Boxley House is a beautiful 17th century country manor house, set in 17 acres of parkland in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The venue provides a relaxed, friendly and professional learning environment.

It may also be possible to arrange training to take place at our teaching clinic on the Tonbridge Road.
