Relevant, engaging, fun.

Really Good First Aid was founded by Rupert Goolden – an outdoor enthusiast who, having attended many first aid courses in his time, identified a need for a more interactive and enjoyable first aid experience.

In 2006, Rupert became an ITC First Aid approved trainer and proceeded to set up Really Good First Aid, offering an extensive range of First Aid Courses and Qualifications throughout Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and The South West, for both urban and remote environments.

Several years later, Really Good First Aid has gone from strength to strength, and company owner, Rupert, continues to pride himself on offering a personal, friendly and helpful service to all.
