About us

I believe that First Aid training is something that everyone needs, whether young or old, for business or for general life. Although there are regulations in place to ensure there are specific numbers of first aiders in all public settings, I believe this should go deeper as knowledge really can saves lives.

My name is Katie and I run Andersson First Aid Training. I am a First Aid Instructor affiliated with Nuco Training and hold a Level 3 award in Education and Training. I have a wealth of First Aid hands-on experience through working as a lifeguard, tennis coach and Events Manager over the last 18 years and I bring this experience into all my courses to ensure relevant and realistic conversations are had when discussing potential situations.

I pride myself in making my courses feel less serious and formal than the subject matter actually is, and I aim to give the information in bite sized pieces whilst integrating a lot of practical and interactive work throughout, so it sticks in a participant’s head. Feedback on my approach has included a client with learning difficulties say “I found I managed to absorb all the information throughout the day, which is very unusual for me” and another who suffers from panic attacks when overwhelmed say that “At no point did I feel overwhelmed on the course and was very pleasantly surprised.”

“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.”
