About us

ATH Training is a family business run by Adam and Mel Holmes since 2011 with the assistance of our tutors Melanie Perks, Stephanie Devans, Neil Stevenson and Bob Pearce.


We host open courses at various locations across Essex including Basildon, Chelmsford and Southend.  Or if preferred we can provide training at your premises on a day and time convenient to you and will provide all neccessary training equipment.


Being a small business we are able to offer extremly competitive prices as well as a personal service tailored to your specific needs.


All of our courses are run in a fun, friendly and engaging manner, focusing on functional First Aid as well as ensuring all delegates leave our courses with the confidence that they could act in an emergency quickly and competently should the need arise.


Over the years we have provided training to numerous businesses from a diverse background whether it be the construction industry, medical and fitness professionals to schools, nurseries and pre-schools. Our passion for First Aid has seen us launch our YouTube video channel, allowing any customers the chance to refresh their skills and knowledge anywhere at anytime with our short clips. These are free and are not exclusively for our customers but anybody wishing to know how to provide First Aid but may not require a certifcate.
