Training you and your team to be the very best.

First Aid and Health & Safety compliance titles are the main thrust of what we deliver  – we believe that simple skills learnt well saves lives. As such, we employ highly qualified, operationally experienced Trainers to deliver down to earth, engaging courses.

We deliver training nationally – at locations and on dates to suit the organisation’s needs. Delivering for groups in their own environments allows us to contextualize courses for the benefit of the learners and saves their organisation expensive travel costs.

For those with a drive to share their own professional knowledge and become Trainers themselves, we offer a full suite of Learning and Development qualifications. Our professional, Teaching, Assessing and Quality Assurance qualifications can support those wishing to teach First Aid or other Health and Safety courses. Equally these generic qualifications are relevant to teach and assess in any sector.

We are here to help and support, so if you are unsure of which course to choose, contact us !

…and what they say about us

We provide our clients with down to earth, relevant training and they give us the most highly valued feedback in return.

We saved my husband’s life….

I just wanted to make you aware that the training that I had in basic life saving came in very useful. Unfortunately, my husband had a sudden heart attack through a blood clot caused via his chemotherapy treatment and went into immediate cardiac arrest. The skills that I learnt on the course must have registered somewhere deep inside, as I, along with my two daughters sprang into action. We live in a very rural and remote area, and the ambulance crew struggled to find us although we did use What 3 words.

We carried out CPR for thirty minutes and used the Defib five times and literally kept my husband going until help arrived.

The coronary care unit told me that the quality of the CPR that we administered was of a high quality and had saved my husband’s life. My husband is recovering after surgery and is improving well. The consultant said it was a miracle that he had survived, and he had very limited chances of survival due to the circumstances and that he was very lucky to be here.

We will always be in the trainer’s debt and would just like to pass on this positive news.

“Please pass on our thanks to the facilitator whom all attendees praised as being the best they’ve had. They mentioned that he was incredibly engaging, knowledgeable and adapted the course for their needs.

If possible, can you please make a note on our account for him to facilitate future courses here.”

 

I would like to feedback about the training we received on 17th/18th April as part of our Inset Day.
I understand that both instructors were excellent, but this is from a personal experience as I was in Sam’s group (sorry I should have asked his surname). He was engaging, extremely knowledgeable and brilliant at teaching others. The fact that he is currently a firefighter and has first-hand experience in dealing with scenarios where first aid is needed within his day-to-day life was invaluable to us.
Thank you so much!
Principal’s Personal Assistant

I would just like to say how easy it was to book and arrange this first aid course and although I sent through some late adjustments this was not a problem for your team at all. Everything has been sent and received with good timings and with ease, thank you. Also I would just like to say how wonderful our trainer was for the day, he kept us interested, entertained with his clearly advanced knowledge on the topic but also he made it very relevant to our organisation which is always very beneficial and makes the course very rememberable. Chris very much took charge and led the day which was perfect and definitely what I was looking for in a trainer, made my life so much easier as the organiser, and participant in the training. Please inform him of our highest compliments, and that we would definitely give him 11 out of 10.

‘I thoroughly enjoyed the training’
‘The trainer was fantastic; he prepared us well for the gory bits’
‘Fantastic trainer’

The staff are not usually so keen on attending courses, especially when it means they are away from their offices for 2-3 days but many of the staff who trained last week have gone out of their way to pass positive comments to me – please do pass on our grateful thanks

Falmouth University

Our trainer was outstanding in all aspects of delivering our training course. He had obviously taken some time to look into our company before he arrived and spent some time with us prior to the official start time asking about what we do so that he could add some relevance to the content and discuss specific work environments that we are often present in.

The course was a whole day but the interactive nature and lack of boring screen slides really kept the attendees attention and made the day fly by.

Everyone said that they had learnt valuable first aid techniques and they would be confident to use in a situation that we may find ourselves in.

We felt that the course represented excellent value for money – we would highly recommend to any other businesses.

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the classroom section of the first aid course that was undertaken at our school this morning. The attendees all said that the course was very good and that the trainer kept it light hearted and friendly but still managed to get across how important the information was and how serious first aid can be. They found him easy to follow and said he was an great trainer.

We had the blended learning BLS course yesterday with Jenny and I just wanted to send a special thanks.  Jenny was a fantastic trainer, all of my staff thoroughly enjoyed the training! Jenny was very friendly, informative and ensured the whole team interacted. I am so impressed, I have had BLS training on 7 other occasions by different companies and this was by far the best I have received.
Thank you Jenny!

I would just like to feedback a couple of things following on from the Study Day that I attended. The CPD day was focused on Airway Management and Medical Gases.

Although I do not currently train in a sector that administers any medical gases, I now feel confident that I have sufficient knowledge to answer any tricky questions that may come my way on my courses. It was useful to go into a lot more depth about airway management and find out about more advanced equipment. I thought that the trainer was absolutely fantastic. He was patient and went at a pace that ensured the learning was taken on board. He was very reassuring and installed a lot of confidence in myself. There were a lot of us in the room with different backgrounds and there were occasions where we would train slightly different ways of administering first aid but Ian was there to ensure we were all standardised, which is most important.

I do look forward to your training sessions and I would like to thank you again for all of your support. Each member of your team that I have come into contact with/ spoken to have been most helpful. I hope to see you all again soon.

I wanted to share some feedback from the CPR session we had yesterday. The whole team were very impressed with the trainer and the training style. The ability to have training within a surgery and not the usual classroom scenario was so much better and allowed the team to roleplay in their working areas. The training was also adapted for the reception team and I know them and myself feel well trained as a result.

I just wanted to convey my thanks to the company and the trainer for the positive experience.
