About Sarah Jeffries, Founder of First Aid Courses Manchester

Established in 2011, First Aid Courses Manchester was born from Sarah Jeffries' deeply personal journey – one interwoven with loss and a resolute commitment to arm others with crucial life-saving knowledge. The tragic and unexpected loss of a dear friend to sudden cardiac arrest, exacerbated by the inability of any bystander to administer effective first aid, propelled Sarah onto a path of both self-education and wider societal empowerment.

Finding existing training both uninspiring and wearisomely extensive, often punctuated by 8-hour PowerPoint presentations, Sarah conceived First Aid Courses Manchester with a simple yet potent ambition: to offer engaging, practical life-saving courses to local communities and businesses. Eschewing traditional, dull training methodologies, Sarah innovated a unique approach, marrying immersive hands-on experiences with multimedia components, all delivered in her authentically relatable style.

First Aid Courses Manchester, guided seamlessly by Sarah, not only provides vital knowledge in an accessible and engaging manner but also fosters deeper understanding and retention of life-saving skills amongst its participants. The company persists in its quest to empower people with the knowledge and confidence to act decisively and effectively in emergent situations.
