I wasnt looking forward to the course, however i enjoyed and learnt a lot from Peter our trainer. He was thorough in his explaination's and answered any questions. I am more confident and more knowledgeable about the first aid tasks covered and explained in this course that are undertaken in everyday life.

Due to Covid this was an unusually hands off course, but with individual equipment this course was kept friendly and safe. Peter has a great knowledge built up over the years and imparted some of this to us in a friendly and informative manner. Nothing was rushed and any question answered. A great course well run.

This will be the fourth course I have done with Pete, as always he makes the course interesting and fun. He never over complicates things like other courses I have been on. I feel this gives me the confidence to use first aid.

Thanks again, see you next time.

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.

06/11/2020 — ' First Aid at Work' course by First Aid Cumbria.

This is the best first aid course I have done. Pete is so well informed and passionate about first aid and this really came across in his delivery. I really enjoyed how practical the course felt. Having our own adult, child and baby mannequin to practise CPR on alongside use of an app to self assess, really helped me to gain confidence in this skill. I also found the catastrophic bleed section incredibly useful and loved practising direct digit pressure and packing on the squidgy wound cubes. The videos Pete used over the course of the 2 days were all very engaging and helped to cement my learning. The content and Pete's delivery both really helped to simplify all aspects of first aid and I definitely feel like I won't be forgetting the basics as quickly as I normally would. Also, I felt utterly reassured by the Covid risk assessment and policy that Pete had put in place.

A really enjoyable course and extremely well delivered given the limitations of covid-19. It was really valuable being able to practice the practical and contemporary aspects of First Aid using the training equipment. Pete went to significant effort in creating a safe learning environment with every attendee working with their own training equipment at an individual work station in a spacious venue.
