Ross is an enthusiastic instructor who knows his subject so well. Any questions we had he was able to answer straight away. He had nice handy tips to help us when we are in difficult situations. I really enjoyed this course and in 3 years time, I will be booking with this company and hopefully Ross.

Pete was friendly and welcoming throughout the course and encouraged people to share just the right amount of their own experiences and stories to help give further insight to the area we were discussing.
The course had a common sense approach with lots of opportunity to practice with real life scenarios discussed.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this course and Pete, I had a really interesting and enjoyable two days and left feeling infinitely more confident and competent.

Peter skilfully covered every aspect of first aid for forest school providers, in a way that was memorable and highly accessible, with a down-to-earth approach that demystified the role! His own experience as a first aider in a range of contexts really enhanced the course. Thank you!
