Helping Hands Academy is an organization whose sole purpose is to train individuals in first aid skills. We provide comprehensive and fully accredited level one, two and three first aid courses.We also offer basic Fire Fighting courses.  Apart from that we offer free public workshops as well as specialized workshops for NPOs and school groups. We believe that first aid is for everyone. 




Helping Hands Academy was founded in October 2014 by Samantha Adams. It all started with a simple free public workshop which grew into something more. The free workshop was held at the Athlone library and was sponsored by Athlone Pharmacy. From there it was realized that first aid skills was widely needed. Our passion grew bigger and so did we.  We set out to take first aid skills into different communities and different age groups. We have registered Instructors who are ready to deliver our fully accredited courses to anyone at any time.
