About A to E Training and Solutions 

A to E logo
​A to E Training and Solutions was founded in 2006 by three colleagues who realised there was a gap in the provision of emergency life support and medical emergencies training. The field of life support training is not heavily regulated and it was clear there were a wide range of providers in the market delivering training of various quality. The company began providing resuscitation training to small GP practices and has expanded to a range of clients from both private and public NHS Trusts. In 2017, the company expanded and is now a nationwide organisation providing not only resuscitation training, but consulting on numerous resus committees and governance policies. Over the past 13 years, A to E Training and Solutions continues to follow their ethos of excellence in healthcare education and service provision.
