Welcome to the Federation of First Aid Training Organisations (FOFATO) by Ian Kershaw MBE.

The Federation of First Aid Training Organisations (FOFATO) was incorporated in September 2007 by Ian Kershaw MBE (Former Head of the First Aid Approval and Monitoring Section within the Health and Safety Executive from 1996-2007). It was formed at the request of Health and Safety Executive approved First Aid Training Providers. 

FOFATO represents around 400 Training Providers across the whole of the United Kingdom as well as a number in Europe. 

FOFATO was formed originally to provide the advice and guidance to Training Provider and Trainers/Assessors.  It also provided credibility to Training Providers because FOFATO would conduct Due Diligence against a Training Provider.

We are probably the only Truly Independent organisation of its kind in the First Aid Industry because FOFATO does not directly offer any form of Training.

Through our membership we offer a large variety of High Quality and Cost Effective First Aid and Health and Safety related Training courses anywhere in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe.

 Employers can contact FOFATO to find a Reputable Training Provider in your area.

FOFATO also offer Quality First Aid Training products  at Very Competitive Prices both to Training Providers and Employers.
