About Us

Hello and welcome to Best for First AID & AED Training my name is Ian Best and I owe my life to a portable defibrillator and the fact that someone had the confidence & ability to use it. I had a massive heart attack in 1997 when I was just 31 and have suffered from angina ever since, everything seemed to be under control and ticking along fine until January 2011. 
I was enjoying some time off in Blackpool with my wife Tracy, we had been swimming in the afternoon and had just gone to the hotel bar for a drink before dinner but before I had even taken a sip from my glass, my vision had blurred and the last thing I remember was trying to wipe my eyes. Apparently, I had passed out & slipped off my chair, Tracy called for help and the hotel events manager.  
Mark Brockbank arrived and carried out basic life support then put an 

AED (Automated External Defibrillator) on me which restarted my heart by sending an electric shock through it.

I have been a qualified first aid instructor for over 20 years & I decided to return to first aid training after my own experience of having a cardiac arrest, in which an AED was used on me.

I updated my First Aid to start my own small business training people in first aid and AED use, we can also deliver paediatric first aid, we are based in Torbay, South West, Devon & we can cover Cornwall, Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Somerset. If you have the necessary facilities we can also conduct training at your place of work.


My aim is to provide The Best First Aid & AED training in any work place. All employers in the UK have a legal obligation to make First Aid provision for their employees, this course is ideal for those who are going to be a nominated First Aider in the workplace or want the most comprehensive introduction to First Aid.

This course covers the practical skills needed by a first aider in the workplace. The course will give delegates the confidence and knowledge to deal with first aid emergencies. On completion the delegates will be legally compliant to the current Health and Safety Executive (First Aid) Regulations.
