18/01/2021 — 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

A very comprehensive day course delivered by personable, friendly and knowledgeable trainers. The thought that goes into making each session interactive and effective is clear to see, especially in the alternative methods of delivery used to respond to the COVID19 restrictions.

Great course, great trainers, great coffee :)

21/12/2020 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I think Pete did a stellar job of delivering the course, especially with respect to having to mitigate the risks of Coronavirus transmission.
Even though it was not possible to perform first aid procedures on each other, I think he managed the situation excellently. I also felt extremely safe with the Covid measures he had put in place: for example, desks 2 metres apart from each other, sanitising material constantly available for personal use and for the cleaning of first aid equipment, having good ventilation in the room and gentle reminders on applying Covid safe practice.
I would highly recommend First Aid Cumbria to others. Thanks Pete!

Pete Cunningham delivered another excellent First Aid at Course. The blend of elearning, discussion time, videos and the level of knowledge shown ensured the course was relevant, and well paced. The practical element of the course covered all the key areas, was well resourced and even used new digital tools that made learning interesting and more enjoyable. It is always refreshing to see that the course is constantly being updated and I would recommend it to others. Thanks Pete.

16/12/2020 — 'Outdoor First Aid 1 day' course by Lakes First Aid

I wondered about the plastic bags and stuff inside in terms of the covid security - I might have just missed Luke saying it had been left for 72 hours to avoid transmission.

Unfortunately we did the course inside it would’ve been nicer to do it outside in the environment like a forest where we were doing forestry first-aid other than that course was great

Many thanks for a very enjoyable course, very practical in application which I much preferred. Face to face training is by far the best way to deliver any training.

Covid precautions were managed very well - I felt safe and comfortable and I liked having my box of goodies and ResusiAnnes all to myself! Perhaps continue with this after Covid?
