Your mini first aid trainers

Shavalyea Gilbert

Hello! I'm Shavalyea, Mini First Aid Trainer for Hertfordshire. Upon meeting me, one of the first things you will notice is that I'm American. I've lived in the UK since January 2015; however, our family has lived in Europe for 6 years! Professionally, I have had many titles; college administrator, corporate trainer, project manager and most recently, stay-at-home mum. Like many, I've always known the importance of being prepared in the event of an emergency but it was becoming a first-time mum to my “always exploring” son that encouraged me to become more knowledgeable. Now, it is my mission to help all parents, carers, children and really anyone become more "first aid-ready" because you never know when it may be needed!

Don't take our word for it...


I attend this course today in Southdown, Harpenden. It was an excellent course, very good value for money & would highly recommend to everyone, parents, Grandparents, babysitters etc.

All areas covered, including the latest techniques for CPR, burns, choking and most recently in the press, Sepsis.
I now feel knowledgeable and confident enough, that I could put these skills into play should I ever need to.
Thank you very much x
