Welcome to First Aid Training

A casualty can die in 4 minutes
You can be taught how to Save a Life in 4 minutes

Obviously you are not going to become a fully-fledged First Aider after just four minutes training; you need a full range of skills and repeated practice. However, simple, life-saving First Aid only takes minutes to learn.

First Aid is a practical skill and there is a strong practical element to the courses with plenty of time to practice and ask questions. The owner, Andy practices what he teaches and so is not approaching it from a theoretical or historic viewpoint. Some Training Organisations use tutors that don't have direct practical experience.

Finally, 4 Minutes does not have the rigidity of larger First Aid Training Organisations, but does have the flexibility to tailor a course to its recipients.

4 Minutes does not provide First Aid cover for Events.

What First Aid Course is right for me?

Workplace First Aid

This can broadly be split into workplaces that involve some form of childcare and those that don't. Within each of those, there are different courses available. If you are providing Childcare, then you will probably be aware of the course that you need as it will be dictated by your Governing Body (e.g. OFSTED). If you are not providing childcare, then it will be one of 'Appointed Person', 'Emergency First Aid at Work' or 'First Aid at Work' depending upon the level of risk at work and the size of your workforce at your site or office.

First Aid At Home

Do you look after a child or baby whilst the parent(s) have to go out to work? In this day and age it is increasingly common for grandparents to act 'in loco parentis' whilst a single parent has to work, or both parents have to work. Would you know what to do if the child or baby started choking or fitting?

Do you have elderly relatives or a child heading to University or College or embarking on a round-the-world gap year. Is your son or daughter picking up pocket mony babysitting? Do you want an extra skill to put onto your Curriculum Vitae?

4 Minutes runs a number of courses that will prepare you or a relative for such emergencies. They are very informal, laid back non-certified courses and can be run at your own home (subject to space). Think of them as 21st Century Tupperware parties!
