Happy Customers

"I just wanted to send a message to the guys who trained me on my 3 day course with Battersea Dogs Home.  Barely a week after I completed the course there was a young man knocked off his moped just outside work.  Thanks to the course I was able to stop him bleeding from a nasty gash to his leg before the ambulance arrived.  Basically everything we were taught was useful, and I spotted things (even little things) that Wayne had mentioned in the 3 days.  Without the great training I wouldn't have had a clue what to do.  So thanks must go to React First for making sure we were well prepared, and able to cope in the situation!  I'm sure the moped rider (who was only left with stitches and a battered bike- no lasting injuries) is also very grateful!
Thanks again! "

"It soon became clear that the course had been very well thought through and was extremely meaningful to our heavy industry. The instructor took the time to find out about the machinery and hazards around the site and presented the course and training in context with possible incidents that could occur in our working environment.I have no hesitation in recommending React First to anyone in the construction industry and having attended the course myself found it most useful and relevant."

"I have had so many comments from the staff about the day; how enjoyable it was, how much they learnt and how useful it was. The repetative element, building up of the skills gradually, has really stuck in people's minds, particularly the 'STOP. ASSESS' (combined with the hands out!)It was also lovely to be spoken to as intelligent adults; so many trainers pitch this wrongly.Thanks again for an enjoyable and informative day."

First Aid at Work requalification course

Course - Basic Life Support (BLS) / Annual Refresher

This course is for clinical or non-clinical staff working in health care organisations. It is ideal for GP's and Dentists who require a CPR or BLS certificate.  You will receive training on the latest Resuscitation Council (UK) Basic Life Support protocols.

This course is also suitable for First Aiders in the workplace to act as a skills refresher between requalification courses.  The current HSE guidelines now "stongly recommend" that First Aiders in the workplace attend a half day update every twelve months before taking a requalification course after 3 years. 

If you need a CPR certificate this is the right course for you.

Skills fade dramatically over a three year period and this course helps keep first aiders skills and confidence up during this time. It is a great idea and always well received by staff.

Course Timings

This is a 4hr course. Private course for your group can be scheduled for whatever times suits you the most.  Early morning and evening or weekend sessions are all possible.

Course Content

  • Primary Survey (AB)
  • Safe Airway Position
  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • Adult Choking
