It was extremely useful to do some homework from the manual before the course so receiving it in advance was great.  It is concise and relevant and the video clips are a great aid to learning and retaining skills.

Just wanted to email and thank you for the course this weekend. It will make a big different to the things I take in my pack on a day out, and the way I think when out in the hills.
Thanks

A. Fagan, Borders Forest Trust

"Very skilled instructor with excellent communication skills.  Adapts to suit knowledge of student.  A friendly approach was taken throughout the course."

M. Hutson, Fife Council

Couldn’t praise Ali enough. Delivered at the right level for an experienced group, and challenged us all on the second day with real life simulations. Our prior training was very much ‘casualty lying on the back, standard procedure’.

J. Bond, Perth

The course was absolutely excellent. Impeccably organised and delivered, and Stef was one of the most patient, genuine and excellent first aid facilitators I've worked with so far.

B. Nyznik, Salisbury Centre

Ali was a great, friendly, enthusiastic and honest assessor, he made the course both informative and entertaining.  The first aid experiences of the 12 students ranged from very to none and yet this was never an issue and as someone with no experience I didn't at any point feel out of my depth.

K. Miller - Inverness

"I was genuinely impressed by the course, having done a number of "tick the box" courses, it was a pleasure to do a course where you were actually expected to learn something useful, rather than acquire a piece of paper."

S. Mulholland, Pony Axe S

I have done many first aid courses over the years, there is usually something I forget or can't take in. This course was very thorough, on subjects that I expected, but was delivered in a way that made it easier to understand 'why' things do what they do, so therefore a lot easier to remember.

'K' - 09/02/20

I enjoyed the enthusiasm of the trainers and everything was extremely well explained. It gave me confidence that I would be able to react to a range of scenarios and I enjoyed that they showed you how to utilise everyday items rather than specialist equipment.

S. Jessiman, Edinburgh

"From start to finish, this course has been efficiently and helpfully run.  We all thought Tom was exceptionally good.  Thanks for all your help."

C. McLean, Coupar Angus Cycle Hub

"Having an expert look over our emergency procedures and combine it with a first aid refresher was a great help to staff and the management team at the centre, and gives us some piece of mind that we are demonstrating best practice for the season ahead. Huge thanks for training again, we'll do the same again next year."

Dave Jacobs, Aberdeen Snowsports Centre

“Having completed some basic first aid courses before, I felt Tom's explanation of scenarios and treatment made it much easier to remember. I now feel much more confident and am very clear on how these skills relate to a real life, outdoor setting. Thanks.”

C. Barrow, Stonehaven

We have just completed your Emergency First Aid in the Workplace course! We had a great time and learned so much, you could not have done more to aid our learning experience.
We look forward to your annual refresher.
Thanks for our knowledge and training.

J. McAlley, 2 Pins Company, Pinwherry, South Ayrshire

"Tom was a fantastic tutor.  Everything was explained and demonstrated in a clear, simple manner.  A fantastic course!"

J. Baillie, SU Scotland




Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for the training over the past two days. Although I realise how important it is to know first aid training and unfortunately had to use it a few times, I always dread the training as it always shows people dying/injured and horrific scenes.


For the first time ever, the training you provided did not send me home having nightmares and dreading the following day. Your manner and personality in the class was perfect, and a rare occasion can someone hold attention of a class to the level you did.


I liked the way you broke the day into sections and brought everything back together again at the end. I do feel I have learned some new ‘tools for the box’, I can only hope and pray I will never need to use them.


T. Lang, WSP Management Services

"Cory was a fantastic, fun and enthusiastic instructor who tailored the course to suite the exact needs our guide/instructor team in Kenya required. An extremely comprehensive and in-depth 2 days that made us all feel comfortable in dealing with a first aid situation."

James Savage, Savage Wilderness

I felt the instructors were very confident, knowledgeable and approachable. There was a lot of repetition of key skills which helped make it stick in your head and lots of opportunity for individual problem solving. I really enjoyed the course and found it interesting and helpful.

T. Powell - Edinburgh

The teaching was very good and did not fall into the usual trap of just trying to show off their own knowledge. Both instructors where not only very knowledgeable, but also very personable and easy to learn from!
