Holly, our trainer was an excellent facilitator. The session was informative and enjoyable, and the class size made it feel accessible and easy for everyone to get stuck in. Holly's first-hand experience in the field, coupled with being a parent made the information really palatable and relatable. She made sure to have inclusive material which was perfect for the multicultural group we were in. I'd highly recommend the class if you want to arm yourself with the confidence to respond to a child in an emergency situation.
Mini First Aid really are the best for all your first aid needs! I found the company online through researching baby first aid products and the reviews were so great that I had to buy and try, and I was so impressed! The first aid kits really are so extensive! I want to say a huge thank you to Angie from Mini First Aid for coming to our home to teach my family and I baby first aid! I had some basic knowledge but it didn’t compare to the hands on approach in our class where we got to practice techniques. Angie was incredible and so patient with us, and the lesson was invaluable to us as new parents!
St Joseph’s School, Wetherby (Early Years class) Our Nursery class love to get involved in whole-school curriculum enrichment activities but First Aid for 3-4 year olds? Even for our well-seasoned teachers, this sounded like a tall order. How wrong we were! Our sessions with Claire were absolutely brilliant. Skillful teaching, great resources, clear messages and important safety information; empowering our children to feel like mini first aiders. With the help of Max the teddy, we learned simple first aid techniques for cuts, scrapes and head bumps; as well as learning how to make someone comfortable by lying them on their side if they are very poorly. We learned about how you may need to phone 999 in an emergency and that you need to know your address. The children absolutely loved The ‘Mini Adventures of Freddie’ story which brought everything together perfectly. Thank-you Claire. Never underestimate 3-4 year olds! They really can save lives!
Rated 5 out of 5 stars on Trustpilot 30 September 2023 Qualification course - Emergency First Aid at Work Excellent course. Knowledgeable trainer who gave clear explanations of the way the body works and why each action would support the casualty. Well structured day with good practical sections. Lots of encouragement and reassurance. I suggest that the display cards should be bigger. I recommend this course and tutor. Date of course 29 September 2023 Date of experience: 29 September 2023
Excellent informative practical session - 2 hours went past in a flash ! Thankyou lynsay xx Facebook recommendation
My daughter attend the Early Years class and it was great. Super informative and delivered really well for little children to remember. My daughter loved it. I'd highly recommend it. It's so important for them to have these tools. They learnt about plasters and bandages, recovery position, 999, what to do about a head trauma and the signs to look out for, and more. Lynsay was really lovely too. Great with the kids 🙂 Facebook recommendation
Rated 5 out of 5 stars Trustpilot review 5 Feb 2023 Excellent mini course for first time mum to be! I attended the child first aid course with Lynsay from Fife as I wanted to be prepared as a first time mum to be. The class was brilliant, delivered exceptionally well in an easy to understand format with plenty of time to practice on the dummies for CPR and choking. Lynsay made sure we left with all of the knowledge we needed to feel confident in delivering first aid. A lovely lady, with a very warm and welcoming nature and I’m sure I’ll be back again to take part in other classes as our little one grows. Excellent follow up email with more links and information. Thank you Lynsay you are an excellent teacher! Date of experience: 04 February 2023
This weekend myself and five mummy friends had a private Mini First Aid session from the comfort of my own home. Now I’ve done it I can’t believe I hadn’t done it sooner, what a no-brainer!! It’s a great feeling knowing that I’d know what to do should a situation arise. All in all, I can’t recommend it enough so get your session booked in now!”
This class was excellent and I really enjoyed it. Lynsay was very knowledgeable and welcoming. She made the training really engaging, interesting and informative. I left the class feeling more confident and shall be recommending it to family and friends 😊 St Andrews 16/09/2023
We have seen hundreds of clients go through the Infection Control Course and heard nothing but positive feedback. They were able to do everything in their own time and now have the ability to promote their certificate/badge to all current and future customers which has helped them secure both venues and new clients. I would highly recommend anyone that is running a children's activities business to complete this course.
The safety of our customers and co-owners is a priority to the continued success of Go Ape. Being a high-risk activity, we naturally want to ensure our teams our skilled to deal with any issues that may occur in our forest environments, and to continue to provide outstanding customer care. We are pleased to announce that we are working with award winners and industry leaders, Mini First Aid, who will be providing our Tribe with bespoke outdoor first aid training.
There are a gazillion things I never seem to get around to doing (fixing the broken blind in our bedroom, getting some photos printed of ‘the baby’ who is almost two but still doesn’t exist on our walls, pinning down the coffee date I’ve been promising my neglected friend via WhatsApp for at least 6 months…) BUT this morning I finally got my arse in gear and ticked off something from my ‘Really Must Do’ list by attending a First Aid class designed specifically for parents, grandparents and carers of babies and young children. It took just two hours out of my morning and covered a whole host of stuff including what to do if a child is choking, how to deal with burns/breaks/bleeding and the basics of life-saving CPR for kids.
I attended Lynsay’s baby and child first aid class in Kirkcaldy. Can highly recommend the class, as a first time mum it was really good information and knowledge to gain. It’s crazy just how much you don’t know! Date of experience: 07 February 2023 Facebook recommendation
Bionical have been working with Mini First Aid since 2022, and we couldn't be happier with the relationship. Following expansion and a global pandemic, we were looking for a way to maintain the highest standards of compliance in training for our nursing staff across the UK, whilst maximising efficiency of delivery. It has been lovely working with Mini First Aid who have supported Bionical to maintain compliance and service excellence, whilst being a completely stress-free process. Thank you to both the Head Office administrative team, as well as all your franchisees and trainers.
Lynsay from the Fife area was excellent. She spoke us through everything clearly and we got practice of everything we needed. I feel more confident going forward. Trustpilot Review - 5 stars Class date 28th April 2023
Had a great session with Lynsay and learned so much in just 2 hours, I highly recommend going. It has made me feel a lot more confident with having a young child and i now know what to do in emergencies! Facebook recommendation
I attended a baby and child first aid course with Lynsay and it was just what I was looking for. All the things I had been worrying about not knowing how to deal with were covered and I came away feeling so much more informed and able to deal with issues that might occur with my baby. Lynsay was great and made the environment relaxed despite the scary nature of some topics which was fab as I think a relaxed environment is much easier to learn in. Added bonus was that I could take my wee boy with me which is ideal if you might be lacking in childcare options! My wee one was made welcome and he just went about his business - playing with the dummies when he wasn't sleeping 🙈😂. Being able to bring him with me was such a nice option to have as I think I would have struggled to attend otherwise. All in all, an excellent class for the price that all parents/grandparents/carers would benefit from! Highly recommend! Facebook recommendation
"We are so glad we have done a Mini First Aid class. We enjoyed the class, found it really useful and feel so much more prepared in the build up to having our baby.”
It was a pleasure meeting Kate and Jacky from Mini First Aid and being taught what to do in case of an emergency. Learning CPR and what to do when a child is choking is invaluable. Obviously, I hope I never had to use the things I learned in today’s class, but horrible things happen and knowing these techniques can really make a huge difference. The class was fun and accessible given the seriousness of the topic. I would highly recommend everyone doing it.
We have been working with Mini First Aid since 2017 on various platforms. Most recently, we ran a highly successful campaign with a 3 pronged approach - the first was to educate more parents about sensitive skin via a Mini First Aid blog, newsletter feature and podcast, the second was to team up on a brand awareness competition via social media, and the third was to reach a wider audience by giving out free Childs Farm samples to hundreds of parents whilst they were learning life-saving first aid. It was a great way to reach our target audience with a multichannel approach.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars Trustpilot review 5 Feb 2023 I joined a class in Dunfermline wonderfully taught by Lynsay. It’s was very practical and informative with lots of real-life examples. The class has given me the skills and confidence to help my wee one and other family members when accidents happen ( hope won’t have to use those skills though). Date of experience: 04 February 2023
I cannot recommend Mini First Aid enough. Kate ran a private class for me and my 11 year old daughter in the comfort of our own home, which was perfect especially as my babies are due any day now. My daughter and I feel much more confident in knowing what to do in a range of emergency situations and I also got some extra twin tips from Kate as a fellow twin Mum! It's such an important life skill that every parent and carer should have so I would urge you to book a Mini First Aid course today.
Great wee session, very informative, helping to gain confidence in what to do in emergency situation. Lynsay is friendly and makes you feel very comfortable. would highly recommend! Facebook Recommendation
Rated 5 stars on Trustpilot Excellent paediatric emergency first aid course today with Lynsay from Mini First Aid Fife and Forth Valley. Small class, running through various practical exercises and inputs. Suitable for me as a freelance dance teacher. Very easy to understand and thorough, thank you very much. 14th October 2023
Mini First Aid - Fife & Forth Valley. Excellent and informative class ran by Lynsay Allan at Fife & Forth Valley. Lots of useful material handed out and she was extremely friendly and knowledgeable! Such a reasonable price to know you have the skills to deal with whatever may potentially occur. Looking forward to going back to do the Baby Proofing course.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars on Trustpilot 18 September 2023 I attended a 2-hour Mini First Aid course, the first in St Andrews, Fife & Forth Valley. Lynsay's class was relaxed and packed full of useful information. However, I felt that the way Lynsay explained each area made the info easy to retain. I've done other first aid courses before and this is the most comprehensive and helpful one yet, with lots of opportunities to practice your techniques on dummies. Fully stocked first aid kits were available to buy at responsible prices, which I did as I knew I would forget to restock once home. Highly recommend this class. Date of experience 16th September 2023

The Mini First Aid Class (filmed for ITVBe) was a fantastic class, both Arg and I found it a really good and informative session
The class was absolutely excellent! Lynsay answered any questions and always gave reasons for the various actions or procedures for the various conditions I could potentially encounter. It was very interactive and hugely informative - just the right tempo. I had always wanted to do a first aid course and SO pleased I did this one. The booklet I was left with is superb too. The follow up email was also excellent as it contained live video's of some of the procedures I had learned about. Thank you Lynsay, very much. Facebook recommendation
Very informative class and Lynsay was lovely, thanks very much! x Facebook recommendation
Forth Valley Mini First Aid Rated 5 stars on Trustpilot I attended the mini first aid course with my two daughters. My aim was to get useful information that would help me in my new granny role. The 2hour session had a great amount of very relevant first aid delivered in a friendly manner by Lynsay. This included a booklet, hands on sessions with baby and child first aid mannequins. I left feeling much more confident if I ever find myself having to use the training. Although there was a lot covered Lynsay emailed additional resource links and encouraged you to get in touch if anything needed clarified. There was also the chance purchase some useful items. I would recommend this mini first aid course. Date of experience: 23 November 2023
Lynsay made us all feel totally welcome and comfortable, babies included! The class was super informative and structured while being so relaxed and friendly. Would 100% recommend to everyone! ☺️Facebook recommendation
I seen a post on Facebook and I thought I would give it a try and I would definitely recommend it, it has made me feel confident about keeping my baby safe and I have learned a lot of new information , something like this is so important and so handy to know especially in an emergency. Thank you so much 💕
One afternoon, we were enjoying a day out in the sunshine and had stopped to feed our daughter of 7 months, she’s just started solid food and we’d been giving her sliced banana to chew on. On this particular day, she inhaled a small piece and began to choke. I quickly remembered Martin’s words, put her in the proper hold, bottom in the air and one forceful strike between her shoulder blades dislodged the banana and although she was shocked, she was able to breathe again and I can’t tell you how relieved we felt! It may have only been 10 seconds in which she couldn’t breathe but it was terrifying. Had I not had the training from Martin and Mini First Aid, I cannot even begin to imagine how differently the situation could have turned out. In fact, I’d go as far to say that the training I received enabled me to save our daughter’s life.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars Trustpilot Review Brilliant course We received the baby and child first aid training course at home yesterday delivered by Lynsay who covers Fife and Forth Valley. As a parent who has had to administer CPR in the past, I was a really anxious ahead of the course however Lynsay kept me re-assured through check in’s ahead of the day so I knew exactly what to expect. I found each of the topics so insightful and I really responded to how Lynsay delivered the content. She kept checking in with me to make sure I was ok which made me feel really safe. My mum, sister and husband also attended the course and we were all engaged throughout. As parents, we all now feel so much more confident having taken the class and I would absolutely recommend to anyone thinking about signing up! Date of experience: 04 April 2023
My husband and I enjoyed a great 2 hour Mini First Aid session in Larbert with Lynsay. Super informative. We both felt that the course gave us increased confidence as first time parents. Lynsay is a great instructor - clearly very knowledgeable and passionate. Class 30th April 2023

The [Mini First Aid] course was wonderful – truly something that all parents should do.
Attending as a grandparent, this session delivered by Lynsay Allan in Fife was exactly what I was looking for - very informative and presented clearly and in an interesting way so that the two hours flew by. Will certainly be recommending it to others. Date of experience: 04 December 2023
"I learned so much from the Mini First Aid adult awareness class. I feel confident about what to do in a range of first aid situations or emergencies. For the first time, I’ve seen images of what burns look like on black and brown as well as white skin. I know what signs to look for if a child is choking, as these can look different, depending on your skin colour. Thanks Mini First Aid for making your classes relevant to everyone".
Brilliant course. Lynsay is friendly and has given me confidence I'd know what to do in an emergency. It was great to learn about choking going into the weaning stage with my son. Highly recommend Facebook recommendation
Rated 5 out of 5 stars on Trustpilot: 4 Oct 2023 good for grandparents Attended Lynsay Allans course in Kirkcaldy, Fife. What a brilliant class, not just full of verbal information but visuals made it so informative. I am a new grandparent and really really got a lot out of it, so much i did not know. I will recommend to others. Date of experience: 03 October 2023
I’m really glad we found this class and went along. I feel a lot more confident now with the skills that I’ve learned. The class was really relaxed and informative, I’d definitely recommend to any parents or carers! Facebook recommendation
I attended my 2 hour first aid session last night and couldn’t recommend it enough. It gave just the right amount of information to leave me feeling confident should I need to use first aid. Lynsay delivered everything so clearly and ensured we all kept up in a gentle and informative way. As an expectant mum I felt it really important for me to know the basics, and I’m really glad I attended. 27th April 2023
Sky are always looking for ways to better support their staff and Parents@Sky Network offers support and benefits to staff who are parents. I came across Mini First Aid through a Facebook promotion and there was a huge demand for the Infant and Child First Aid class which was shared on our internal and external social channels. The communication and organisation of the event was excellent - Sarah-Lou was professional, engaging and even injected some parent style humour! The class was interactive and educational - everyone took something away from it including much more confidence in dealing with any emergencies which could arise with their little ones. The feedback received on the back of it was amazing! It was a great success and hopefully something we can do again, and potentially roll out to other sites in the UK. Thank you Mini First Aid, you were a pleasure to deal with!
