"After serving as an operational Firefighter for 29 years I moved into First Aid / Fire training. This background of working with people, often in distressing circumstances, allied with the skills I acquired throughout my service, reinforce how valuable good training is in saving lives. These experiences now give me the ability to pass on this knowledge in an enjoyable and rewarding way."

Testimonial Dec 2020 Steph Nightingale at Nightingales OH services Nightingales logo

We will continue to use the services of AMTD following the lockdown as they fully understand the business needs and have first-hand first aid and nursing experience. I have no concerns returning to face to face training following the lockdown as the AMTD team are thorough in their taught courses and I am confident this will also be reflected in their COVID19 risk assessments by ensuring all safety measures have been addressed allowing their courses to be delivered in a COVID19 safe environment.

They have always communicated with ourselves in a timely manner and have adapted and tailored the delivery of the courses to meet the specific needs of our businesses. Many other companies we have used historically have not been able to do this.

The ladies who deliver the first aid courses are knowledgeable and are able to hold the audience attention throughout the day. I myself am a registered health professional and thoroughly enjoy the content and the delivery of the courses.  I am confident they fully understand the information they are delivering, this is why we will continue to use them for all future first aid training.

Keep up the good work.

The one day (6 hour) course covers the HSE approved syllabus :at the end of the programme students will be able to :

  • assess the situation and circumstances in order to act safely, promptly and effectively in an emergency;
  • administer first aid to a casualty who is unconscious (including seizure);
  • administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation;
  • administer first aid to a casualty who is choking;
  • administer first aid to a casualty who is wounded and bleeding;
  • administer first aid to a casualty who is suffering from shock;

All our courses now include AED practical demonstrations and activities on a training AED!

All our courses now include AED practical demonstrations and activities on a training AED!

This syllabus is set  by the HSE. If you require additions to the syllabus these can be added on to the delivery time.

For example if you have a colleague who is diabetic it would be worthwhile adding

this to the course so that the first aiders know how to deal with a diabetic emergency.
