“Encouraging the development of key clinical skills with our team of dedicated frontline health care professionals”

Our training team are very particular about our courses and we take great pride in our trainers and the courses we run. We offer an exceptional standard of training, delivered to the very highest of regulated national standards. As a Qualsafe Academy all of our courses meet the Health and Safety Executive requirements and follow the Resuscitation Council UK Guidelines. Our trainers come from a variety of backgrounds including Military, Search and Rescue, Accident and Emergency and serving Frontline Paramedics. Using their joint wealth of medical knowledge and life experience they make every training course we run a unique and interesting way to learn.

We offer regular public courses held at our training center in Shaftesbury which anyone can book and attend, the dates for these are below. We also offer bespoke courses where we can come to your business or a facility of your choosing to deliver a course. We also are proud to run regular practical community outreach courses, which sees us visiting local rural villages and teaching basic life support and first aid skills.

We believe training should be highly memorable and fun, we teach using a variety of methods which include practicals, scenarios, presentations and self-study. Unlike some providers, we think it’s important you’re supplied all the tools needed to succeed and feel confident, which is why we supply you with all the materials you need, this includes workbooks and reference materials all free of charge. There will be science experiments, music, quizzes, simulations and case studies from the real world – come and join us and discover that the best training is fun.
