MWS First Aid Ltd has been a limited company and vat registered since 2006.  We have used the trading name 'Mountainwater Safety' since our establishment in 1994.

We are best know for delivering quality 'environment specific' first aid training mostly for groups at their own venue, although we cater for individuals upon some specialist courses and have an open programme for individuals.

We are based centrally in the Tees Valley, which is less than 4 hours drive to the majority of the population centres on the British mainland. We have a team of professional trainers living across the UK who have all graduated from the MWS staff training programme ensuring the consistency and quality for which we are well known.

  • MWS delivers first aid qualifications accredited by ITC.
  • MWS trainers deliver the TAQA range of qualifications accredited by ITC (teaching, assessing and quality assurance)
  • MWS delivers ITC Workplace Compiiance qualifications at venues across the UK

We do our best for you. Our profits are not our main drivers. Feeling good about what we do is much more fulfilling.  We aim to be fair and balanced in everything we do; respect, compassion, empathy, objectivity define our relationships in and out of work. This ethical philosophy is not a process, tool or formula but pervades our entire activity.
