About The National School of First Aid Training

Who are we and why are we offering you first aid training?

The National School of First Aid Training (NSFAT) knows first hand the value of first aid and the difference that it makes when accidents do happen. The training and the after-care we offer to our clients and customers is a testament to our success as a trusted and respected first aid training organisation.

The NSFAT was originally founded out of a local requirement in rural South Lanarkshire (Scotland) for recognised first aid qualifications that meet the requirements of The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. The training had to be delivered in a realistic, practical and hands-on way (not relying on boring PowerPoints and lectures) that was client focused and cost effective.

From this simple brief the NSFAT has grown beyond expectations into a National Training Organisation that supports local and large businesses, National Corporations, local governments, charities and private individuals.

In June 2017 NSFAT merged with 4Minutes Training, a First Aid Training Company with a similar philosophy. 4Minutes is based in Berkshire, just outside London and between the two Companies there is a wide spread of skills and geographical coverage. If you want to know more about 4Minutes or the merger, please do get in touch via the Contact page.

Our courses are (and always will be) delivered by professional, experienced and fully qualified instructors with proven backgrounds in emergency and trauma care such as NHS nurses, military medics, state registered (expedition) Paramedics and First Responders. We also have many environmentally specific instructors such as International Mountain Leaders and fire fighters to teach and support courses based on specific client needs and specifications.

What makes us different?

Many organisations make extravagant claims about being the best at everything and better than everyone. We work hard to be the best for our clients and customers, meeting their needs and expectations, delivering training they need and that participants will value for life.

Mission statement:

  1. To deliver a service that is friendly, professional, informative and prompt, clearly differentiating each customer and client’s unique needs and requirements.
  2. To deliver training for every participant in a way that is fun, practical and dynamic that will engage, motivate and reassure.
  3. To give each candidate the confidence to manage and prioritise medical emergencies and the skills to save lives and promote recovery.
