21/11/2020Pete delivered the training In a very professional manner,as always, whilst ensuring it was fun, which is important, especially when covering such important and potentially life saving training. Thanks for a great course!

Testimonial from LOUISE Smith, Nursery practitioner , Blossom Trees Nursery
19/11/2020I really enjoyed this course. The blended learning meant that I began the two practical days feeling like my knowledge was already refreshed. The two days then allowed us to discuss things further and try the skills and techniques that we were learning about. Pete is a great trainer who explains things clearly, with an appropriate sense of humour and at a good pace. I would very much recommend this first aid course.

Testimonial from Sarah Norton, Wray With Botton Endowed School
06/11/2020This is the best first aid course I have done. Pete is so well informed and passionate about first aid and this really came across in his delivery. I really enjoyed how practical the course felt. Having our own adult, child and baby mannequin to practise CPR on alongside use of an app to self assess, really helped me to gain confidence in this skill. I also found the catastrophic bleed section incredibly useful and loved practising direct digit pressure and packing on the squidgy wound cubes. The videos Pete used over the course of the 2 days were all very engaging and helped to cement my learning. The content and Pete's delivery both really helped to simplify all aspects of first aid and I definitely feel like I won't be forgetting the basics as quickly as I normally would. Also, I felt utterly reassured by the Covid risk assessment and policy that Pete had put in place.

Testimonial from Beth Griffith, Trainee Tutor , Bendrigg
05/11/2020A really enjoyable course and extremely well delivered given the limitations of covid-19. It was really valuable being able to practice the practical and contemporary aspects of First Aid using the training equipment. Pete went to significant effort in creating a safe learning environment with every attendee working with their own training equipment at an individual work station in a spacious venue.

Testimonial from Nigel Edwards
24/10/2020Thanks Peter, After completing 15 or so first aid courses they can become a bit tedious, yours was not! The relaxed atmosphere, flexible approach and use of different media made learning interesting and stimulating, a very enjoyable course. I will not hesitate to book again in 3 years time.

Testimonial from Thomas Marvan, founder / director, Dyslexia Adventures uk
13/10/2020Pete's attention to detail is second-to-none. Even during a pandemic, he delivered a richly rewarding course which left me brimming with confidence to deliver First Aid as soon as I walked out of the door.

Testimonial from Jonathan Wolfendale
11/10/2020A very informative, thorough and practical course.

Testimonial from Fiona Roberts, Teacher of Outdoor Education, Windermere School
09/10/2020The blended learning approach allowed me to prepare and focus ready for the course itself, which I thought was really helpful. I also thought the bluetooth resuss manakins combined with the QCPR app gave really useful feedback on how well we were performing CPR.

Testimonial from Stuart Peacock, Expedition Manager, Adventure Peaks Ltd
08/10/2020Thanks for making the course enjoyable. It really helped going through the sections and putting them into practice rather than just completing it online.

Testimonial from Charlotte Graham
08/10/2020Pete made every effort to ensure that the course was tailored to the learners needs. The adaptations made in light of Covid were appropriate. Pete found a fantastic balance of reminding us of these adaptations without allowing the course to be overshadowed by them. I'll be back in 3 years!
