About Us

High Peak First Aid Training was established in 1997 by Nicola Pickering after a series of solo caving trips in unexplored caves in remote areas of Nepal. These experiences formed the basics on how could a lone person look after themselves in a remote area when help was unavailable and a person had to be completely self sufficient.  The company and courses have developed over the last nineteen years due to our clients feedback.  We now have a team of Tutors who are qualified or hold posts in the following areas

  • HCPC registered paramedic
  • Regional Examinations Advisor (East Midlands) at Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh
  • MIMMS instructor
  • Mountain/Cave  Rescue Team members
  • MSc Risk, Crisis and Disaster Management
  • Teaching, Learning and Assessment Skills for Medical Educators
  • PG Cert, Medical Education

We are an independent company who can give you evidence that you have picked a training provider who will meet your requirements for due diligence.  Any Tutor employed at High Peak First Aid has over fifteen years of teaching experience with one or more of the professional qualifications listed above.  Tutors also have experience of dealing with casualties and regularly undertake CPD so you can be reassured that you are receiving training to current guidelines from experienced professional Tutors.

We are an extremely adaptable company and one of our main strengths is to listen to what our clients want and then deliver a course suited to their needs.  We offer medical and first aid courses with certificates that are nationally recognised and valid for three years. Whether you choose the urban or wilderness/remote first aid courses you can be assured that you are receiving the best of training. Our aim is to give you practical and enjoyable training enabling you to feel confident in dealing with a medical emergency.
