19/11/2021 — 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course by First Aid Cumbria.

The best bit about this course is the opportunity to learn practical skills using the manikin. I have been taught CPR before, but it was so much easier to know if the technique was correct with the phone app and my own individual manikin. Thank you.

Thanks for a great course Pete. Covered a lot in a day but all explained very clearly. Plenty opportunities for us to have a go whilst keeping covid safe. Great how the Annie's app works now, really helped getting a feel for the force needed.

I feel much more confident to have a go if I find myself in need of applying first aid. It is the sort of knowledge I hope I will never have to use but you never know.

25/10/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Pete delivers first aid courses in a very participant-centric way, tapping in to the knowledge "in the room" and building on that - which is great for involvement and confidence. He covers a lot a content in an accessible way and is always available for individual's questions that pop up. First aid courses can seem daunting as there is always a lot to take in but Pete gets the input level just right so that participants can leave with belief in their abilities as confident and effective first aiders.

21/10/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Pete delivered an interesting and interactive course to what can be, after many first-aid updates, a dry and repetitive subject. The materials and teaching were innovative and effective, especially in these covid safety-compliant times. Pete's professionalism, client care and understanding, underpinned the quality and realism of this first-aid course. A testimony to his outdoor experience and knowledge base.
