19/09/2018i like more outdoor practice as it suits my learning style. Perhaps more multiple casualty and "helpful" by stander senarios.

Testimonial from Bob Eastwood, Ski coach instructor
18/09/2018interesting, engaging, practical and fun. Pete has clearly spent time tweaking this 2 day programme into something that is really useful and informative. He has a relaxed and professional delivery style and he provides plenty of stories and examples to bring first aid situations to life. I really enjoyed the 2 days.

Testimonial from Jenny Haygarth, Arrampica
17/08/2018Active Aid courses are always the best, most pragmatic and easy to remember first aid courses, and I've been on a First Aid course every three years for the last 30.

Testimonial from Carolyn Bailey
16/08/2018I learned so much. I had been avoiding going on a first aid course but Pete made everything very straightforward and easy to understand and apply. The emphasis on doing first aid in the outdoors was incredibly helpful. I recommend this course without reservation.

Testimonial from Leonard Farnsworth, Owner, Bowland Adventure
15/08/2018Pete delivered a relaxed and informative outdoor first aid course with some unique insights based on his own experiences. There were also some useful items given to participants to keep such as tick removal tools and pocket masks. The venue was also excellent.

Testimonial from Nicholas Holt, Mountain bike leader, Sublime Rides
22/07/2018If you are serious about making a difference and not just doing a first aid course so you can tick a box on a form then this is the course for you. If you want to actually stand some chance of saving a life then this is the course for you. If you have any intention of working with me or going on an adventure with me then you need this course. I can look after you, can you do the same for me?

19/07/2018Peter did a great job keeping the pace and flow of the work interesting over the 2 days. Thank you.

Testimonial from Andrew Warren, Teacher, The Queen Katherine School
18/07/2018I had a really enjoyable 2 days. I got to practice my skills, got updated on new first aid practices, spent time inside and outside the classroom and got to talk through, and ask questions about, any aspect of first aid. Couldn't be happier with a first aid course really.

Testimonial from James Saxon
18/07/2018Thank you for a really accessible and down to earth approach to first aid training. Pete's knowledge and practical expertise in the field really helped us to learn how to use and apply the techniques taught. The course also clarified the role of the first aider and I feel more confident to provide first aid in a serious incident until the professional medics arrive. Thank you!

Testimonial from Linda Valenti, Forest School Leader, Frith Forest School
18/07/2018Peter skilfully covered every aspect of first aid for forest school providers, in a way that was memorable and highly accessible, with a down-to-earth approach that demystified the role! His own experience as a first aider in a range of contexts really enhanced the course. Thank you!

Testimonial from Linda Valenti, Forest School Leader, Frith Forest School
18/07/2018I loved how passionate you were about first aid. I also loved how current everything was. The bit about lymes disease was great. I would have ignored the symptoms if I hadn't attended your course, not because I didn't know them but because I didn't know how common and serious the disease can be. Ironically I ended up receiving antibiotic treatment for a tick bite today, just one day after the course because I followed the advise you gave.

Testimonial from Stephanie Bond, Learning Support Assistant
12/07/2018Pete was brilliant through out the course. Really knowledgeable and clearly has an interest and wealth of experience in first aid. An excellent course. Thank you.

Testimonial from Jim Crookes, Welbeck DSFC
30/06/2018I love the simplified, common-sense approach. I've done over a dozen First Aid training courses and this is the third time I have renewed my qualification with Pete and Active Aid. I wouldn't go anywhere else now.

Testimonial from Sue Cox
