At Tidal, quality and delivery are at the heart of everything that we do. Building and supporting trusted relationships with our clients enables us to deliver training that is genuinely tailored to each businesses’ needs, within the required framework as set by The Resus Council and HSE guidelines, supporting business compliance.

All our first aid courses are delivered by State Registered Paramedics and medical professionals sharing a richness and depth of experience and knowledge that goes way beyond the classroom. Many of our trainers are former combat medics, having served with Her Majesty’s Services overseas on operational duty.

Our training sessions feature plenty of practical work as the practical skills need to be practiced to be learnt to best effect. Whilst PowerPoint can be an effective learning method for particular course elements, the practical sessions really bring the subject matter to life along with the richness of knowledge from our trainers.

We believe that people are the most valuable asset in every business. Learning first aid skills and knowledge to help someone in the event of an accident, injury or emergency is beneficial to everyone – be that in or out of the workplace.

What is the law on first aid in the workplace?
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed.

What is ‘adequate and appropriate’ will depend on the circumstances in the workplace. This includes whether trained first-aiders are needed, what should be included in a first-aid box and if a first-aid room is required. Employers should carry out an assessment of first-aid needs to determine what to provide. Tidal Training Direct have a free workplace First Aid calculator to support businesses with this.

“Having completed a great 1 day first aid training course with Clare and Team at Tidal, I can say the Paramedic taking the course was extremely knowledgeable and made the day a fun way of learning and gave hands on experience that means I now feel much more confident about dealing our first aid requirements at work. Thank you I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.”

We had the most wonderful experience with Tidal Training Direct Ltd, from the moment we enquired with Clare, to the... training itself with Alun. Nothing was too much trouble! We felt all measures had been taken to give us safe and secure training, while also keeping it interactive and engaging. The course itself did not disappoint, Alun gave us all the confidence to practice first aid and made gaining our Level 3 Award an enjoyable experience. We couldn’t recommend Tidal highly enough, anyone looking for First Aid, or any training for that matter should get in touch with Clare and the team at Tidal.Our team all commented on how in depth the course was. We had all previously taken the training with other companies and have never come away feeling as informed as we did after our session with Alun. He gave examples of real-life scenarios and helped us understand our role as First Aiders. He answered all of our questions and took the time to make sure we all felt ready before taking the exam, thanks to him as all passed with flying colours!Thanks so much to Clare, Alun and all of the team at Tidal.read more

Thank you so much to the team at Tidal Training for the Emergency First Aid Training I received yesterday. As a small... business owner I needed to ensure I had someone in the office who could be on hand should something horrible happen to a staff member. I sent 2 colleagues on the training course last year and both were so glad they learnt the techniques to help. As such I decided I would also like to do this not just for work but incase I could be of assistance anywhere else. The training was fantastic and it gave me a feeling of comfort knowing if someone was to get into an accident or have a stroke/heart attack etc I could be of some help in the interim. I would advise that not only businesses do this course but people at home too who could be there if needed for a loved one or passer by. Thanks so much - Alanread more

I never had a first aid training course before so I was a bit uncertain and anxious as to what to expect. Tidal... Training made everything really simple to follow and to the point. It is always so important to know how to help others and I was glad to finish the course confident enough to do so if needed.read more
