Martin – Mini First Aid North London

Martin is a First Aid at Work and Paediatric First Aid Qualified first aid trainer. He currently works across North and East London delivering first aid classes to all ages. He is available to offer open or private classes, both face to face and online.

Hi, my name is Martin and I am a father of two with twenty years experience as a workplace and sports first aid provider. Following being made redundant in September 2018 and desperate for a change of work routine, my partner introduced me to Mini First Aid. Having always enjoyed my first aid roles over the years, and wanting a new challenge, I took the plunge and joined the team. Fortunately, there was an area available in London, and so Mini First Aid North London was born.

We have been up and running now since January 2019, and during this time have been lucky to have met and helped hundreds of new parents, grandparents and carers, not to mention getting to meet the newest members of the their family! I love being able to help people feel more confident about dealing with life’s little lumps and bumps.

What started off as an opportunity to run our 2 hour Baby & Child classes has now grown to allow me to teach children from as young as 3 and to run qualification classes covering both Paediatric and Workplace First Aid.

I love what I do, and it is refreshing to be able to bring lifesaving skills to everyone in a friendly relaxed environment. I currently cover North and East London, and all my open classes are listed on my website. If you do not see anything local to you, please feel free to get in touch.
