Our History

How it all started

Indie Lyndale is the founder of First Aid Plymouth, a family run business that has been training people in first aid for over 15 years.
Indie has over 30 years of experience working as an outdoor leader, as well as being a qualified teacher and lecturer. Time and time again she experienced dull and ineffective training courses and decided to make a change.

Saving lives is serious business, and that good training can make a huge difference in an emergency. Because of these experiences, she went o to create a range of interactive and enjoyable courses, which foster long-term learning.
