  1. Amy

    Attended this course last week. I enjoyed the course and I honestly didn’t think I would be saying that about first aid. It was interactive and fun not just learning the theory and then giving it a practise. The tutor Mark gave us scenarios so we could really understand what it maybe like in a first aid situation. I have attended many first aid courses in my role as a teacher, but this was by far the most realistic, inspiring and interesting. As a result, I am aiming on teaching some basic first aid to the children in my class using some activities we participated in during the course. I would highly recommend this course to others.

    Attended this course last week and it was brilliant. The tutor Mark made learning fun and threw some challenges in along the way to make you really think about what you were doing. It made things sink in rather than just walking from the course unsure about certain parts. It was my first time at a first aid course and I was made to feel welcome and helped constantly throughout the 2 days. I would recommend to all, thanks Mark!

  3. Kate

    I agree with the reviews below. Mark was a brilliant trainer. Explained things really well but also in an interesting and captivating way. Lots of opportunity to practise what we were taught and some ‘curve balls’ thrown in to make you think!! Would certainly recommend this to anyone else needing first aid training. Many thanks.

  4. Iain Wilson

    I have recently attended the first aid course with Mark and learned more about the subject in two days than I had in a lifetime of teaching!! The course was excellent, highly recommended and it was great to work with some lovely people too. Thanks again to everyone concerned.

  5. Caroline Cope

    The course was excellent and delivered very well by Mark. We had lots of opportunities to practice what we where taught with role play and plenty of time to ask questions. I would highly recommend this first aid training course. Thank you.

  6. Emma Raisbeck

    I am the manager of a nursery and out of school club. I, myself, recently did their paediatric first aid course with two of our staff team. The course was delivered very well with a good mixture of practical and theory. Mark does make the course fun and keeps your attention. There are lots of opportunities to practice what you are learning. We would definitely recommend.

  7. Tina Morley

    The course was very well delivered, and Mark made it as interactive as possible whilst adhering to Covid-19 guidelines. I would definitely recommend!

    Calm & Logic “So much information to take in, could be overwhelming without Mark to help make it make sense… Need to keep calm and apply the logic.”

  9. Ellie

    The 2 day paediatric first aid course was really well led by Mark, he managed to make it as practical as possible with covid restrictions in place and was very informative. He covered many topics and was very approachable with any questions asked. I would highly recommend

  10. Emma Raisbeck

    This is my third time doing the training with Mark. Mark delivers the course at an ideal pace for all, mixing up theory with practical to keep all students focused. The course was run in a ‘covid safe’ manner while still allowing for practical elements. Mark has a wealth of knowledge on the subject and is approachable for any questions. Highly recommend for your training needs!

  11. Izzie Kay

    This was my first time doing the paediatric first aid course with Mark. I was very impressed with the course content, course pace, Mark’s enthusiasm, discussion and practical aspects. It was informative alongside being enjoyable. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would recommend this to anyone working with children.

  12. Lydia

    This is my second time attending this course with Mark. The two day course was very informative but was delivered at a pace that suited everyone. There was a good balance of practical and theory work, these covered important information but without feeling too heavy. Mark was very good at making us all feel relaxed and happy to contribute to discussions. I would definitely recommend this course.
