Who are we and what training courses do we provide?

We are Zsolt & Ana, award winning first aid providers and instructors based in South West London. We provide many first aid training courses including  3 day first aid courses throughout the south of England and pride ourselves in providing high quality first aid training. We instill confidence in people to help in an emergency by teaching them vital skills for first aid training, health and safety.

Established in 2015, we began with delivering lifeguard courses for Royal Life Saving Society. Our love and passion for first aid training grew and we soon realised that there is more to training which motivated us to become qualified to teach a wider range of first aid courses. 

Practical First Aid was created from the desire to ensure a safe and confidence instilling environment for people who want to learn first aid. Our increasing experience has given us the opportunity to work along side fantastic first aid mentors, who share their best practice and passion.

Every course we teach is tailored for each person’s needs. We understand that everyone has differing learning styles so we strive to cover all kinds of teaching methods.

We are flexible and can adapt and deliver our training at your venue: no matter what your venue is, we strive to deliver the highest quality training you can ask for.

We also have a training room in Town Lane, Stanwell, Staines, TW19 7PW. We use this room for the majority of our open courses for individuals to book.
