First Aid Training
Low Port Centre is a Health and Safety Executive recognised First Aid Teaching establishment and has been involved in tutoring First Aid since Low Port was opened in 1987. We have taught first aid to many different groups varying from youth groups and primary school children to adults from all walks of life.
