Why choose an Authentic Training first aid course?

Authentic Training is run by experienced, qualified professional teachers and all our courses are too.


You won’t be taught by a wet-behind-the-ears coach who’s just learned the basics of first aid themselves – you’ll learn from a consummate professional with years of wisdom and learning to draw upon.


Whether you choose to learn at our training centre in Kirkby or ask us to visit you in your workplace, we will come armed with an arsenal of equipment to help us in teaching you essential life-saving skills, such as: when and how to give CPR, how to use a defibrillator, the treatment of burns and many other essential First Aid skills.


The courses are, naturally, hands-on – you’ll be practising giving the kiss of life to your own manikin and putting a casualty in the recovery position until it seems as easy as pie.


What’s more, they’re good fun – we make sure they’re not hours or days of boring learning, but a course that you or your staff will actually enjoy.
