About us

About us

Having been a first aider for nearly 30 years, Dave our lead trainer has been teaching first aid skills for the past 10 years in Sussex and the South East.  Tailoring courses to ensure that those attending get the most from these sessions is key to us. Our trainers all have enhanced DBS certificates and are trained to deliver courses in a way that any learner can access.  We are all skilled at adapting our training to meet the needs of the course delegates.

We will always provide tea/coffee and biscuits on our courses as we know that learning over a cuppa can always make the learning better.

Overall we are a small company wishing to help develop life saving skills in local communities and groups and hoping that we can train as many people as possible to make a difference in a life changing event.

Do please get in touch if you have any questions  - click the "contact us" link and we will be right back to you.

FAQ's

We will train in a number of venues but we like to train in local village halls in the South Downs.


Who will you train?

We will train anyone over the age of 16 but if a parent/career comes too we will train anyone over 14yrs.


What should I wear to the training?

As some of the training takes places kneeling or laying on the floor on most courses we ask that you wear trousers and shoes to the training.


What if I cannot kneel?

We can always help you to learn in other ways.  This is our forte.


How do I pay?

We take payment via PayPal on the site or in exceptional cases we will accept cash on the day.


If I have paid when do I get joining information?

We aim to send out information two weeks before the course date.


If I have to cancel, will you refund me?

If you have to cancel 14 days or more before the course we will refund you 75% of the course cost.   Less than 14 days before we will not be able to refund you but we will look to move you once another course.


Would you train my local group?

We will happily train for a group, this is one of preferred ways of training if you can provide the venue we can provide the training .  If you wish we can sort the venue.  Contact dave@southdowns1staid.com for more details.
