Nearly two thirds of people (59%) within the UK wouldn’t feel confident enough to even try and save a life, and a further quarter of these people (24%) would do nothing and wait for an ambulance to arrive or even hope than a passer-by would know the correct first aid required”. (First aid zone)

At TL Training, we are confident that we can change this. We no longer want people to feel afraid of performing first aid. We want to provide members of the public with the necessary knowledge and skills to prevent a condition from worsening, or to even save a life. There are certain things that we can do and certain things we can remember to help us feel prepared in the event of an emergency. There are a number of sayings and abbreviations in the world of first aid.

What is CARE?

CARE is an acronym that has been created to help with the management of blood loss.


Check and clean the wound. You need to make sure that there are no objects left in the wound, as this will lead to further bleeding. Use water to clean the wound and make sure that there is no dirt of other debris in the wounded area.


Apply pressure to the wound to also stop the bleeding.


Raise the wound above the level of the heart. This will reduce blood flow to the wound, allowing a blood clot to form.


Ensure the bandage is effective. The bandage should not be too tight or too loose.

The CARE treatment method will work for both small and large injuries and bleeds.

Following the public address by the Prime Minister, we have taken the decision to temporarily close our training centre and rearrange all non-critical training both on and off-site for the remainder of March, April and May. Whilst training is suspended, we are still very much open in terms of queries and bookings. Please do not hesitate to contact us as normal via telephone, email, social media or the online chat facility on our website. All bookings for non-critical training will be honoured and our sales team are currently in the process of contacting affected customers with alternative training dates. If you have any critical training needs over the coming weeks do not hesitate to contact us. Please be aware that this training is being reserved for Key Workers and will only take place if absolutely necessary. All of us here at TL Training are hoping to return to business as normal shortly. However, we must continue to follow the Government’s advice and only re-open when it is safe to do so. TL Training hopes that you and your family stay safe over the coming weeks and months and very much look forward to assisting you with any training requirements you have following this extraordinary time.
