What our customers think of this course type:

This is the second course I have completed with Lakes First aid. I've completed quite a few FA courses over the years and the ones with Lakes First aid are definitely the most enjoyable, and therefore most memorable. The teacher, Luke, is great and makes all of the information easily understandable.

PAEDIATRIC FIRST AID

Trainers: View the trainers offering this course type »

What our customers think of this course type:

In the 40+ years I have been a nurse, I consider this to be the best first aid course I have attended. The content, delivery, equipment & facilities were excellent. I enjoyed the relaxed & friendly approach of the trainers. Their humour and anecdotes were entertaining / interesting often enforcing reality. Attendees were made to feel at ease, no pressure was put on them and questions/discussions were welcomed. What I especially appreciated was the digital monitoring of the effectiveness of our CPR and also the explanations given as to what happens in the body / why we do things, rather than just being told to do it. Of course, the limitless cups of tea/coffee & chocolate biscuits was an added bonus.
