About us

Andersson First Aid Training is run by Katie Jardine, a Sussex based sports enthusiast and former international events manager. After having her first child in 2017, Katie trained to become a First Aid Instructor and gained a Level 3 Award in Education and Training in the process. In 2020 she added First Aid for Mental Health to her repertoire.

Katie works with a variety of businesses and individuals, teaching accredited and regulated courses in basic First Aid and First Aid for Mental Health. She also enjoys teaching carers of children short or accredited courses in Paediatric First Aid and going into schools and clubs to teach children age appropriate First Aid.


Katie’s ethos when it comes to First Aid and First Aid for Mental Health training is simple. It’s not just about gaining a piece of paper to say you are a first aider, it’s about gaining real, hands-on skills so you feel comfortable and more confident that you could help support anyone with a physical or mental health first aid requirement. This is why Katie prides herself on making all her courses and content fun, engaging and interactive.


In 2023, Katie received the award for First Aid Provider of the Year 2023 – Sussex which she is incredibly proud of.  


Maria, private course organiser and attendee.
“Katie was fantastic and made the whole experience fun and enjoyable while ensuring that it was also interesting and easy to understand. She was very practical and took us through the various stages very patiently and carefully, allowing us scope to use the relevant equipment and to practice on our colleagues. We all learnt a lot and enjoyed the way she taught.”
Stu, Emergency First Aid at Work attendee
“Really enjoyed yesterday’s training course. In years past they have become tedious and you were able to bring a fresh twist to the day through a combination of location, attendees, and most importantly an atmosphere conducive to learning. Enjoyed the quizzes and thought the hands on tutoring was informative too. End of session game was fun and showed we all learned and knew our stuff!”
Claire, course attendee.
“I thought the course was excellent and the information provided great. The time you took to ensure that we all understood the information was fab, thank you!”
Joey, Private family course organiser and attendee
“Katie came to our parents house so we were in a relaxed environment and were able to care for the children at the same time as the course to ensure that no family member missed out. In just a few hours Katie imparted vital and specific knowledge on first aid for babies and toddlers which we all benefited from. Katie’s calm demeanour combined with up to date simulation tools meant that we could put her theory into direct practice to ensure the information was better retained. I would definitely recommend this course for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or anyone who is in the care of small children.”
