A Short History

How We Started

Indie Lyndale is the founder of First Aid Cardiff, a family run business that has been teaching first aid for over 15 years. Indie has a background in mountaineering, teaching, and lecturing, with over 30 years of experience.

She was frustrated by the dull and ineffective training courses she had to attend, and she decided to make a change!
Saving lives is a serious matter, and good training can make a big difference in an emergency. Inspired by a desire to train people in skills that count, she developed a variety of award winning courses that have built a fantastic reputation all over the UK.

A Practical Approach

Engaging First Aid Training

First Aid Cardiff teaches first aid in a new and exciting way. Our courses are fun and interactive, using realistic scenarios to help you learn. You will get to practice the skills you need in a safe and supportive setting, while learning the theory behind them.

You will leave our courses feeling confident and ready to use your new skills. Many of our trainees come back for more training, and share their stories of how they used their skills in real life situations.
