An excellent course, Simon's delivery style was relaxed but will structured and the content was clearly adapted to suit the participants experience. His quick observation of existing historical trauma within the participants was also dealt with really well.

The programme was a great refresher and was bang up to date in integrating the new risks and concerns we are all living with as a result of the pandemic.

Testimonial from Godfrey Owen
31/03/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Simon Clooney

The course was very well managed given the current COVID restrictions. Even though practical outdoors group scenarios were unable to take place, it was still engaging as discussions went into greater depth and “what ifs” were considered around various topics. The opportunity to address any other content useful to our profession was given and taken up. Thoroughly enjoyable, thank you.
