Difference Is Clear

With more than 20 years of experience providing services nationwide and in the Caribbean, we understand the unique needs of our industry and use our institutional knowledge to provide unique classes that make our students and HR departments feel like we are part of their team.

Founded and operated by a team of paramedics, firefighters, nurses, and medical professionals, Miami First Aid ensures that all safety classes are taught by certified instructors with years of practical, real-life experience. Background checks and fingerprints are required for all our instructors, and we offer group and individual training.

Each student gets their own manikin, reducing class time and increasing hands-on practice time. Classes are offered in English, Spanish, and Creole, and we have proudly served South Florida since 1996.
