04/12/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

Great two day outdoor first aid course. Instructor was very experienced and related the course to real world situations. It was very comprehensive course but the material was kept simple. There was plenty of role playing to practice.

11/11/2021 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

The online course was good the way it was set out, easy to follow and not too much information before a test on it. In comparison to other courses this leader has a sensible practical attitude ( others have been scary stories of how could be sued if broke a rib doing cpr etc) The practical session was good as it was small numbers and good practical session, covering all areas we would need in a school setting. Again in comparison to some other courses I felt I was training to be a Dr not a First Aider.

I loved the enthusiasm of Ross the instructor who kept energy levels high of the team even through a long informative day. Ross made time to answer lots of questions and was very open to adding extra info when requested. I especially like the improv of the tourniquet and sling from field equipment. It was a good use blend of outdoor and indoor learning both of which were useful.

26/10/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

The course was so well designed for both refreshers and first aid newbies with lots of hands on practice. Ross was thorough with the covid measures and everything was properly cleaned before and after use. One of the best things for me was that Ross always had a tip or alternative way to approach something if you struggled - he made it as easy as possible to achieve the learning which meant I have FINALLY felt confident doing CPR chest compressions, I'd not managed this previous courses so am very happy.

I'd definitely recommend this course to colleagues and will be back in 3 years for another refresher!

Ross Wallace is an excellent instructor who brought his passion for first aid to the course and made it really enjoyable as well as informative. It was a well structured course mixing listening sessions with practical scenarios to test our knowledge and first aid problem solving. After completing the 2 days I feel much more prepared to go out on site visits in remote rural areas.

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.
