My first aid training courses in Norwich are aimed at getting the best from my students, providing a professional yet relaxed service. After 21 years of hands on first aid experience I decided to put all that knowledge and practical experience to good use; and retrain as a first aid training instructor. Even with many years of first aid practical experience, I continue seeking ways to expand my knowledge so I can provide the best support to my Norwich clients. Teaching and learning are not only my passions but defining aspects of my life. My personalised approach ensures that candidates are provided with a supportive learning environment, in order to gain both first aid skills as well as confidence to provide life saving first aid. For more information on my first aid training courses in Norwich see a detailed description below.
