About  Us

A brief history of everything FAB!

Long story short

First Aid Borders was founded by Jenny Isherwood way back when. Jenny’s moto and the driver behind FAB is a desire to simplify first aid training creating accessible and non-intimidating courses, free of complicated medical jargon where participants become advanced at the basics, not basic at the advanced!

Specialising in courses for those lucky folk working in the great outdoors, FAB became an ITC accredited centre and started delivering courses tailored to the needs of those within the outdoor sector.

Now delivering her own brand of clear, clutter free first aid courses born out of real life experiences gained from over a decade of being in mountain rescue and a lifetime of outdoor pursuits, FAB is in demand from those within business and industry, urban and remote.
