There was a broad range of experience in the group and hearing other people's stories and incidents is a really useful way of being prepared for what might happen. I think its great when an instructor always space for that to happen and offers some insight/advice on different scenarios they themselves have had. Thanks again for being accommodating of me feeding the baby!

I have been doing first aid training for over 23 years annually and also have completed three previous REC courses, this was by far the most impressive and progressive approach I’ve experienced. First aid can be a lot of this and that... however this was simple, straight and manageable.
I really enjoyed it, the trainer was knowledgeable and approachable.... I’ve already recommended it to my pal within 2 hours of driving away.

This is a great course to get you thinking about scenarios. The content is kept simple - in a good way - easier to remember when the real thing happens. Luke was knowledgable, happy to discuss queries but also kept things moving.

This was my first ever First Aid Course, I was concerned that I would be overloaded with technical information. The instructor was marvellous, so knowledgeable and very approachable which makes learning a pleasure. The course content was great and I came away feeling confident that I will be able to use what I have learned with confidence.

Knowledge and experience of the trainer was evident, always better to learn from someone who you feel knows what their stuff. Loved the location. Easy to get to and very suitable for outdoor first aid, as we were outdoors most of the time.

03/07/2019 — 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

Both trainers provided a visual impression to their training which does help in getting the most out of quite imposing subject and so the whole class paid full attention to the information that was constantly provided to help us understand the action and subsequent treatment needed from the actions to prevent an unnecessary death.

Testimonial from Bob Ford

I have learned a lot about first aid but hope I never have to put it into practise. David was very informal and helped everyone to relax. The explanations of how to treat various accidents etc was very good without being too technical.

Testimonial from Joyce Dinsdale
28/05/2019 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

The course was refreshingly simple. So much of the pedantry I've experienced previously was eliminated (though I have worked at various levels), and the bare bones of first-on-the-scene, keep-the-bugger-alive-until-help-comes was very refreshing. It was pitched at exactly the right level for purpose: First Aid.
The trainer was deeply knowledgeable and experienced and clearly enjoyed input and questions from candidates.
It's always good to be in the hands of an excellent outdoor professional plying their trade.
Said as if I know anything, but there you go.

This course really ticked all the boxes: location, vegan lunch options, content, delivery. I loved the free gifts and the topics that deviated slightly away from first aid, to me, were very relevant for awareness and possible symptoms we may come across. Definitely, the best first aid course I've been on whereby I think I'll remember much of what to do in the event of a scenario. Excellent!!!

I found the course to be really detailed but also easy to learn off and a fun way to learn all of the specification. I came into the course not really knowing a lot about first aid even though I had done scouts and come from an outdoor adventure family. This course was great as I was able to find out how to deal with all the situations that would happen in an outdoor environment. Doing and reciting it outdoors also helped as it added a sense of reality to the course. Can’t really complain about anything else and I’d definitely recommend it to people if they were thinking about doing this sort course.

Peter made all the potential issues a first aider would have to deal with very real and made us feel confident that we would be able to be useful even if we were not confident or experienced. This was also because he didn't overload us with excessive information but used tools to help us retain the important details. He was interesting, engaging and topical. He listened to and answered all our questions.

A great course covering the things you really need to know as a first aider.
Pete provides facts, removes myths and attempts to help trainees "unlearn" some of the stuff from other course providers that really doesn't help in first aid scenarios. Highly recommended course provider...don't hesitate book now!

It is abundantly clear that Ross is an excellent instructor who put across the course content in a fun way and was clearly able to engage with his student base. What I did like was how the theory element was immediately & seamlessly backed up by realistic practical scenarios. In summary it was a refreshing change to be taught by somebody who clearly knew their subject and more importantly was passionate about it too.

Testimonial from Alastair Yates
29/03/2019 — ' First Aid at Work' course by Lakes First Aid

Ross ran a Level 3 First Aid at Work course at Energi Trampoline Park in Carlisle for us over the last 3 days.

I have dealt with many first aid providers over the years and Ross was absolutely fantastic. He made the course enjoyable, extremely informative and very practical with lots of hands on learning.

He quickly assessed that our group responded brilliantly to visual aids and practical learning and adapted his teaching style to suit our group perfectly. Ross provided a great insight in to the responsibilities of a 'First Aider' and debunked an awful lot of 'First Aid myths' doing the rounds on Social Media which helped our staff fantastically.

The wealth of experience Ross has in his industry is fascinating to learn from and certainly stimulated our staff to go above and beyond the 'usual remit' of learning and question asking expected from a 3 day First Aid Course.

In a world where H&S has gone mad, Ross made the whole experience enjoyable, understandable and bearable with his demeanour and teaching style and is a credit to the industry.

All the best,

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.

An excellent course which covered all the essentials for our work. Ross was obviously a very experienced trainer; he had lots of energy and enthusiasm for the subject but maintained sharp focus to ensure we covered a lot of ground. No time was wasted. I am happy that Eden Rivers Trust staff have completed this training and would certainly recommend the course to others.

Excellent session delivered by Luke from Lakes First Aid.
Really informal and relaxed session, with lots of interaction and a focus on actually practicing the skills being taught to build confidence.
My First Aid knowledge was a bit patchy and, it turns out, a bit out of date, so I now feel much more confident that I could handle an emergency situation if it arose.
I definitely hope to keep up to date with a course like this, because I think it's an invaluable skill to have.

Testimonial from Dominic Farrell

The room at this venue is not big enough to allow for practical learning. It was very old and the heating was inadequate. The course tutor Luke was very good and delivered an informative training day which he delivered in an easy way to learn and remember.

It was one of the best first aid courses I have ever attended. Even though it's a course that a lot of people normally need to have. It didn't feel like a drag to attend. It was superbly enjoyable to attend. Learning should be fun. It was really helpful being taught how to think and not what to think. Because first aid in the outdoors will never always be the same situation.

30 years in the outdoor industry, I've done lots of first aid courses. I'd previously done the cycle of 3 year training programmes with Pete but decided to take a break to see what else was out there, returning in 2019.
This programme engaged me from the start with new emphasis and up to date facts. More refined priorities gave me bit size takeaways, which I'll remember. Pete's knowledge, brought to life with a wealth of anecdotes, maintained my interest throughout. A larger cohort was great for networking and the lunch options were a delight.




Testimonial from Jim Evans, JK Training
09/01/2019 — 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course by Lakes First Aid

Luke was a superb trainer. Very clear, lots of experience and relevant discussion.
Better if:
1. Mobiles in Silent Mode throughout with no beeping etc, including trainer's.
2. it was held in a tidier venue, the venue was fine and room was suitable and quiet, but had lots of junk stored in it and this clutter made it not really fit for purpose for rental to business. Rooms at Impact Centre in Penrith for example are smart and tidy for rental.
The room though was much better than Parish Rooms which have acoustic issues and noise from other rooms/activities.
3. if it had finished by 4.30pm as advised.
4. More space in these tiny review boxes to write in.

I was quite nervous on arrival to the course as I wasn’t quite sure what the day was going to involve with never having done first aid training before. From walking through the door, to leaving at the end of the session Angie and Andrew couldn’t of been more welcoming. Their warm, friendly, out going personalities really put me at ease throughout the course. Couldn’t of asked for better trainers. Their stories and knowledge of their jobs was amazing to see and listen to. Thanks again for being so wonderful.

I have done many 1st.Aid courses over the years but for me this one stands out. The bottom line for me is 'Will I function well in the real world if I had to--will I remember how best to respond to an incident?'. I feel far more confident in this since this course.

This is the second Active Aid Outdoor First Aid course I have done with Pete from First Aid Cumbria. When I needed to do another course for work this was the first place I looked. Pete is brilliant and puts the informative forward in a easy to understand and practical format, which makes the course very enjoyable. If your into the outdoors and need a First Aid course for either keeping your qualifications up to date or if you just want a good knowledge of First Aid for your personal endeavours into the outdoors then I can’t recommend First Aid Cumbria highly enough.
Thanks again for an excellent course and I’ll no doubt see you in another 3 years!

09/10/2018 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I had very little First Aid knowledge before attending this course and would not have had a clue what to do in medical emergency. I now feel I've learnt enough to provide practical help in many situations, even if that is only to establish if emergency services are needed and contact them asap if that's the case. Pete has a great teaching style, with the ability to fully engage with the audience and present the material in an interesting and often amusing way. I enjoyed the 2 days very much and would recommend the course to anyone.

This will have been my 7th renewal of a First Aid qualification over the past 21 years working in the Outdoor Activity Industry. I'm sure things will have changed over the years, but this has been the best delivered course that I have had the pleasure to attend. Pete's friendly and knowledgeable style cuts to the reality of first aid in the field and his pragmatic approach leaves you in no doubt as to what to do.
He uses a great mix of PowerPoint, video clips, personal anecdotes, practical demonstrations and applications, that keeps participants engaged. Even old hands have learnt something new.
Was it really two days long?!? It flew by!!

Going to this first aid course has given me more skills and confidence to help in the future with people who need first aid, it's made me aware of other issues as well that I might not have known about before. I'm almost always outdoors around people being outdoors so it's useful knowledge. Pete's style of training really suited me and I'm sure it can suit a lot more people.

This was my first ever first aid course. I was very impressed by the course content and presentation style and I am very glad I attended this particular course. I feel as though I could now actually be of some practical help in a first aid situation, despite having little aptitude for these kinds of things, and despite my being squeamish about certain injury types. Thank you, Angie and Andy, for an excellent and very useful day. What extraordinary and amazing work you both do.

I found the EFAW training day informative and enjoyable. My colleagues and I agreed that the relaxed atmosphere and low key assessment procedure make the course well suited to even the most reluctant participant. Andrew and Angie are a great team who, although they use a light touch in presentation, have in depth knowledge of the subject from ongoing experience in the field. The venue and refreshments were excellent.

Testimonial from Jane Storey, The Bath House Ltd
22/08/2018 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Simon Clooney

It was simply but effectively explained. Simon kept on repeating important information, which I find a very effective way for me to remember the different steps, especially when it can be confusing (e.g. DRSAB was drilled over and pver ). Simon is friendly, patient and entertaining but focuses on the seriousness of the potential dangers. A valuable, informative and excellent course.

I had a really enjoyable 2 days. I got to practice my skills, got updated on new first aid practices, spent time inside and outside the classroom and got to talk through, and ask questions about, any aspect of first aid. Couldn't be happier with a first aid course really.

Thank you for a really accessible and down to earth approach to first aid training. Pete's knowledge and practical expertise in the field really helped us to learn how to use and apply the techniques taught. The course also clarified the role of the first aider and I feel more confident to provide first aid in a serious incident until the professional medics arrive. Thank you!

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!

I loved how passionate you were about first aid. I also loved how current everything was. The bit about lymes disease was great. I would have ignored the symptoms if I hadn’t attended your course, not because I didn’t know them but because I didn’t know how common and serious the disease can be. Ironically I ended up receiving antibiotic treatment for a tick bite today, just one day after the course because I followed the advise you gave.

Pete Cunningham has a wealth and depth of knowledge and translates it into easy to understand essentials. The course is delivered in a friendly environment enabling the group to ask questions, no matter how 'daft' we think they may be. I have been on many first aid courses and most have made 2 days seem like 5, but these 2 days flew by. Most importantly, though, is the lemon drizzle cake is the best I have ever had!

Thank you Pete

Another really excellent course from Pete Cunningham.
After the last one were I learnt so much more than the average first aid course I already knew I would be updating with this course.
It didn't disappoint!
As before, it was based on the latest facts and figures, and it was linked to the real world of the first aiders interface with paramedics and A & E.
However Pete's real ability is to send you away knowing whats important, and whats not, and standing some chance of remembering that for most of the next 3 years!

I have been an Outdoor Instructor for over 30 years and therefore I have attended a great number of First Aid courses. I found this course to be the most informative, well structured, flexible, relevent, sensible, understandable, practical course I have ever attended. So much more has sunk in and has stayed with me, so far! We covered all of the important issues and topics with sufficient detail to ensure understanding at the appropriate level. The course was fun, light hearted,up to date and held our attention unlike so many of those I have attended before. I am already looking forward to my refresher with you and not fearing the dreaded First Aid Refresher as I have done soooo many times before.
A great many thanks I learned and have retained so much more.

Luke is an excellent trainer of first aid. He made it clear from the start that he didn't want people story telling about their personal experiences throughout the day and because of that the focus was maintained on the course content. Luke made the day very relaxed, informative but fun as well which works for me personally, I found the whole day very enjoyable.

I found it interesting and Ross, the trainer was helpful, listened well and was not judgemental in the slightest. He took on board all the feedback from the course, by the people attending, and we worked through a lot of different scenarios.

28/03/2018 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

As ever Pete ran an excellent course. Having done a number of courses with Pete before and having attended other 1st aid courses and medical courses in the past, I can say with certainty Pete is by far the best course instructor I have had the privileged of being tutored by.

His approach is calm, concise, informative, and appropriately humorous.

This particular course was a mix of people from different backgrounds (mainly students and staff at UOC) As such there were students for whom this was their 1st First Aid course, as well as tutors from different fields of expertise who have attended many 1st Aid courses over the years. Pete was able to effortlessly make the course suit all members and make everyone interested and informed.

His approach to 1st Aid is one of straightforwardness and no nonsense. Many other providers delve into somewhat ancient and outdated techniques - Pete deals with 1st Aid as it should be; providing people with the ability to save lives.

From conversations with others within the industry and other members of the course, Pete is held in extremely high regard.

Most Outdoor Professionals see their re-validation of 1st Aid as a bit of a tick boxing exercise, I for one do not, and have found Pete's courses to be something to look forward to.

Roll on 3 years time!

I left this course an enlightened and more confident 1st aided. I have attended 1st Aid courses since I was 14yrs old due to my leisure interests and it was the first time in all these courses that I was told that CPR would result in the possible breaking of ribs. If I were required to perform CPR now I would be more confident in being able to carry out CPR without panicking if I did hear a rib breaking. This I believe is vital information that could save a persons life as had I needed to perform CPR prior to this course in would have panicked and possible stopped through fear or shock not expecting possible cracking from the ribs. Dave easy to talk to and he answered all questions and has the experience to back up his teaching.

There were lots of discussions and Peter kept the mood light yet handled difficult issues sensitively. We covered a lot of material but it never felt like an overload because it was delivered in a clear and simple to follow manner.

The venue was ideal for the course but not 'fancy'. Catering was excellent with abundant tea, fresh coffee, great cakes and lunch across the road in the lovely pub was great too.

Training days, CPD days are essential and are where we get the chance to play and learn plus develop skill and gain new experiences, which makes us and turns us into the people we are today. First Aid Cumbria's two day outdoor first aid course does all the above and helps build the confidence to deal with all sorts of problems that might occur, in and out of our regular working days.

Really enjoyed the fun learning environment, I've learnt more on this course than any previous first aid course I've done. Feel I'm very prepared should I come across a casualty that needs first aid. In particular this course has really added to my skills the use of a defibrillator, which I am seeing pop up in all sorts of places around where I live, including old phone boxes, and now realise how easy they are to use, that any one can gain access to them and that they can make such a difference to your success in CPR.

The trainer was particularly welcoming and knowledgable. He was open to discussions and ideas about covering what we thought was important as opposed to completely rigidly using an agenda which proved to be beneficial in terms of covering what we needed.

Testimonial from Katie Robinson, Cycling Officer, Sustrans
31/07/2017 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

After attending the 2 day Outdoor First Aid Course with Pete, I feel I've learned a lot. Rather than leaving the course feeling as though there is lots to remember, and then forgetting most of it, the practical approach of the course means there is plenty of time to practice various First Aid responses in a range of scenarios relevant to working with children outdoors in Forest School.

Pete's common sense, practical approach means there are many opportunities to practice the core skills and to really get them cemented in your head. This gives a sense of understanding and confidence that you could use such skills if necessary.

The way the course is delivered means that there are plenty of opportunities to ask questions relevant to your setting, and as a student, you learn as much by listening to the questions and experiences of others as from asking about scenarios from your own setting.

I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a hands on, practical approach to first aid.

Through a combination of indoor and outdoor group work and discussion, practical demonstrations and a spoken presentation featuring videos and photos, the course provided a thorough and engaging education on First Aid. This was my first First Aid course and has taken me from knowing very little to feeling much more confident to administer First Aid. The take-home resources provided include a detailed book on all aspects covered on the course which will serve as a great revision resource. Overall, I would highly recommend this Outdoor First Aid course.

Testimonial from Edward Swindley, Freelance Outdoor Instructor
15/06/2017 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

What I would like to say is I have attended first aid courses in the double figures and I have always clock watched and needed match sticks to keep my eyes open. A second day was more of a punishment.
Yesterday I felt, not only could I have completed a third day, but I am now considering whether I should seek out more information on becoming a first responder.
Why the change? Put simply, the teacher makes all the difference. Pete clearly has experience and talks to colleagues with lots more experience about what really happens in the field. In doing so he doesn't "deliver" content, he walks you through it with useful pragmatic pointers, often from relevant real life scenarios. With humility, gentle humour and a genuine personal passion for getting healthcare right, you feel like you're in good hands.
This is more than a first aid course, this is also a course in critical thinking and adapting to situations using what you have. Is that not what first aid SHOULD be about? After all we can't take that textbook with us and casualties don't always fall on their back in a nice position.
A colleague said to me if you do a first aid course you have to go to this one - I will reiterate that, you should do this course.

I have just spent the last two days doing a first aid course with Active Aid, run by Pete Cunningham. On a practical level, it was a very friendly, well run and full 2 days. You get hands on with scenarios to work through as a team or on your own. Very informative short videos that put things into perspective with lots of opputunity to ask questions if unsure about anything. A valuable and vital thing to do if dealing with the public on any level. Great lunch and scrummy cakes at coffee time.

12/06/2017 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

If you have the opportunity I would recommend attending the two day course, covering outdoor first aid to extend over and above the first aid at work qualification. This will allow you the opportunity of discussing and working through a variety of contextualised situations in groups, that a first aider may be confronted with. The course keeps it real and explores the depths as well as the limitations of first aid.

I have never taken any sort of first aid training, so after deciding to take this course for outdoor hobbies(dog training and horse trekking), I am 100% glad I did so.

I told my friends when I finished the course - How did I go 25 years not knowing some of these life saving skills!

Without doubt, the best 16 hour outdoor first aid course I have been on. The content is relevant, interesting and straight forward. Pete draws on a wealth of experience to explain real world examples to really illuminate what a first aider could encounter, and most importantly how to effectively deal with it. The setting and recourses are ideal, and the lunches, as always are top notch.

As an experienced and active Cave and Mountain Rescuer, who still has to keep doing the HSE approved FAW qualification for work, it had become something of a chore after my 8th time through!

05/12/2016 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

A really practical, stripped back course. Lots of practical scenarios and chance to discuss experiences in a non confrontational, easy going way. Pete portrayed first aid as very much an "on the spot" problem solving task, using what skills you have to hand. Thoroughly recommend it!

Testimonial from Matt Beresford, Deputy Head
04/12/2016 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

It would have been good to add the cost of a basic first aid kit to the cost of the course and supply one to each participant.

Excellent course and trainer, would definitely recommend it

Testimonial from Edwina Forrest
30/11/2016 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

This is the first time I have participated in a First Aid Course since being at school (over 20 years ago). Therefore, for me, the learning curve was steep! However, I come away from the two-day course with a quiet confidence that I will be able to help a casualty should the need arise.
The course syllabus was extensive and appeared to cover most conditions/injuries which would be encountered both in an outdoor and work-based setting. It was interesting, after talking to other trainees who had previously been on other similar courses, that this one was the best in terms of material and presentation.
Ross was our trainer for the two days. He was certainly knowledgeable in the field of First Aid but, more importantly, able to present the information in an understandable fashion. He was also very approachable.
After attending this course, I will hopefully be in a stronger position to achieve my goal.
One thing that may not be apparent from the website is that Ross is also an accomplished pastry chef; the cakes and biscuits which he made the evening before were excellent and very well received by all!

Thank you for a great day, I was slightly dreading attending this course having been to first aid courses many years ago that were extremely dull and not very useful. However this course was very practical with lots of re-enforcement of key concepts. I have confident that I could put into practice what I have learnt in an outdoor scenario.

Myself and 2 of my staff attended the course and found it very useful. We gained a vast knowledge of emergency first aid but the course was also very enjoyable as well as informative. We would recommend to anyone.

Extremely well organised and delivered programme of practical first aid. Scenarios were devious enough to provoke thought and learning in a structured and safe environment. At no point did I feel I could not make a mistake and be badly judged. The entire process was treated like a complete learning experience, with myself as someone with no prior knowledge treat equally as important as those with many many years of experience. Highly recommend the course and course leader to anyone wanting to complete their outdoor first aid course.

These courses are practical and enjoyable. I came away with a handful of messages and methods drummed into me - so I should be able to act quickly and confidently if I ever need to. Thank you it was a really good experience, as always.

Testimonial from Adrian Gibson, James Cropper plc
21/03/2016 — 'CPC Courses' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Having to do 5 days training over 5 years to retain my CPC, I can say that this is, without doubt, the most useful training that one can do. The other modules (traffic law for instance) can be 'self taught' by reading up on it. First Aid is an invaluable skill, interesting to learn and can't be self taught.
Just book it!

24/02/2016 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

As an active individual with a love of climbing/ fell walking / biking, I am often out alone in remote areas and felt that I would benefit from First Aid Training. I wanted to feel that I may be of some use, if I am the first on the scene to a casualty in a remote area. I would also like to undertake my ML Training, and felt the Outdoor First Aid course would be relevant to this training.

This course was the first 16 hour Outdoor First Aid course that I have undertaken..... and I loved every minute of the training. I feel like I learnt more than I expected too, and left the course feeling more confident in the delivery of basic first aid. I even felt inspired to apply to become a community first responder!

Pete is a fantastic trainer. He is a personable but professional man, with plenty of relevant, real-life experience to pass on to attendees. As an trained outdoorsman, I felt he was perfectly placed to advise on the pragmatic delivery of first aid in the outdoor setting and I was interested to hear about his personal experiences as a a first aider and first responder. The course also included numerous practical scenarios and drills, which were a useful way of re-enforcing our learning, enabling is to practice in a more realistic setting than the classroom.
The facilities at Tower Wood were top notch; we were spoilt with great food for lunch and nice cake :)

I would thoroughly recommend - many thanks :)

Having used Active Aid on more than one occasion, I can thoroughly recommend them for all of your first aid training requirements. The experience Ross in particular has, really comes across in the courses. It's evident that he hasn't just 'read the book' but has been there and done it. What more can you ask for in a trainer! Highly recommended!

Great course, learnt a lot more than I expected to. Delivered in a fun, interesting and informative manner, by people who carry out the work "at the sharp end". Far too often courses like this appear to be "preached" by people taking themselves far too seriously, course attendees switch off and learn little. This was definitely not the case!!!

With 40yrs experience between them, what is evident with this team and course is PASSION. Kentdale have a huge passion for the subject, which when not teaching they are practicing on a day to day basis in public. The level of knowledge is exemplary, and examples of emergencies they have attended are used well while delivering training. The Hospitality is excellent, and the practical side of the course is made good by excellent equipment on offer to use. Overall a very enjoyable course. I would recommend Kentdale First aid training to everybody.

As a 'first aid virgin' I thoroughly enjoyed this course, it was taught in a fun and friendly manner and the practical elements were fantastic.
I liked that there was no written element to the course and the trainers were on hand to offer praise throughout, nothing felt like a silly question and hearing their true life anecdotes really put my mind at ease.
There was a great mix of people on the course and fortunately everyone was as eager to learn as I was.
All in all, a brilliant day and I wouldn't hesitate to both recommend Kentdale Aid or complete a refresher course when due. Once again, thank you so much.

As someone who is lucky enough to spend time in a mountain environment, I believe having a knowledge of basic first aid is as important as knowing how to use an avalanche transceiver, crevasse rescue techniques, rope belays etc. This course is an excellent way to gain and reinforce that knowledge.

Testimonial from Gus MORTON
12/11/2015 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Pete has a wonderful way of embedding what is important in first aid in, and debating and discussing those points that where first aid becomes confusing. I feel I learn so much more form this method than the old fashioned here is the text book, please memorize it.

This course meets the needs of those who require a First Aid certificate to work in an outdoor environment. Ross is very knowledgable and provides excellent examples of practical First Aid from his work with Mountain Rescue. He has a great teaching style and ensures that everyone is involved and gets the best out of the training.

15/10/2015 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

This really was the best first aid course I have attended. Pete has an excellent delivery style and kept everyone's attention by switching from theory (powerpoint, film and discussion) to practical sessions throughout the course. Pete (and Active Aid) has a very simple approach to first aid which was very refreshing. I would fully recommend this course and Pete Cunningham to anyone requiring a first aid course.

A very well delivered course. The sessions were very varied in the styles of delivery which I really liked, questioning was very good (in terms of how the trainer used questions to probe and develop knowledge), and much thought has gone into this topic by Ross from his personal kit that he shared with us to the kit he uses for the training course - a very excellent first aid course (best I have had yet), many thanks

i thought this course was excellent. It was very fun and engaging. The best aspect for me were the course instructors. Andrew and Angie coordinated the delivery of the information between in a way that kept us interested, they bounced off each other really well. Most importantly though was the fact that both have years of working experience, enabling great insight and anecdotes that helped to understand the realities of dealing with a medical emergency. Keep up the good work guys :)

I really enjoyed the day and I felt very supported by Ross.
He had a lovely kind accepting manner.
Without sounding offensive to the training system; I have attended many of these training session which are often not looked forward too. Yesterday however was the best first aid training day I have ever had. Well organised, brilliant pace, details and examples were given when ever asked. Most importantly Ross got information across to us without seeming superior or making us feel inferior. He had a great sense of humour which made me feel comfortable to ask questions even if I thought they sounded a little silly.
Many, many thanks.

Pete has the ability and experience to distill the important skills and knowledge that are of practical use in real scenarios.

This one has left me with a clear idea of what I need to know and do and the confidence to use it if needed.

This was the best first aid course I have ever done. Everything was excellent. Loved the pragmatic approach. Having done lots of first aid courses i still learnt loads as this time it was the most thought out and relevant content, and also very well researched and up to date. The delivery was of a very high standard and always engaging.
Including lunch in the course was a really nice touch, as was having fruit tea and coffee available, not just the standard tea/coffee options.

This 1st aid course really helps you become a more effective 1st aider in real situations. It is clear and focused on the aspects of 1st aid that really matters and therefore it does not seem to be over cluttered with information, even though we covered a vast amount of content. An excellent course.

Ross was such a positive, cheery teacher and made the learning of what can be a dry subject great. His approach to delivery was outstanding and he was very aware of making sure it was pacy to ensure he kept all our attention. Loved the fact that Ross gave us top tips and advice on improvisation if you don't have the relevant materials to hand. I learnt so much more from this course than I have on any other First Aid course I have attended. Many Thanks.

This course provided by Pete Cunningham offers a refreshing approach to First Aid and how it can be applied on the hills.

This is the basic requirement we have for team membership. Most members go onto and currently hold the Mountain Rescue Advanced prehospital care certification (CasCare). Ross's enthusiasm and passion for the subject matter along with the pragmatic approaches to First Aid have been enthusiastically received by all members. The 16 hours fly by and all leave with plenty of new tricks and tips...a great provider of an essential life skill. Thanks Ross!

Enjoyed the two days - it went quickly and the theory was broken up nicely with the practical work. It was pitched at a level that was great for all with a lot of subjects covered with time for discussion and questions and tailored to the needs of those on the course. It gave me the confidence to tackle first aid in the outdoors not just with a first aid kit but with improvisation too!

Testimonial from Nick Russell
11/03/2015 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

The course was excellent. Much of the presentations were varied and thoughtful: visual information, film clips, anecdotes, discussions. Pete delivered the information very well and the pace was good. By the end we had all relaxed and enjoyed learning, and each other's company; the role plays certainly helped in this regard. The course is straight to the point and practical, not lots of medical things you would struggle to remember. It was just what you need and can practically use and, in that way, entirely fit for purpose. I certainly felt more confident and pleased I had completed the course.

Excellent course and instructor.
Andy's teaching was pitched at exactly the right level. He had the ability to engage everyone and provided constructive and positive feed-back on participants' efforts at CPR and bandaging.I finished the day feeling more confident about being able to cope with a medical emergency than I've felt on any other First Aid course I have attended. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who needs to do First Aid training.

Ross provided a detailed and varied approach which managed to cover a wide-ranging amount of practical First Aid and casualty care information. Fitting the whole outdoor programme into 16 hours has to be intensive and a challenge. Always well-prepared and manages to be relaxed with trainees as well as precise. Strongly recommended.

Testimonial from Julie Chapman
07/01/2015 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

If it ever became possible (and compliant) to do a half day refresher every year and only the full 12 hours following any major changes to First Aid then this would be much more beneficial to already very busy teachers, who value the skills very much but find it a bit of a chore to do the full course over and over again! We loved Ross though - Thank you :-)

I enjoyed the friendly relaxed but thoroughly professional tutoring on this course. The trainer himself obviously used his experience frequently and it was a reassuring environment to make mistakes in! I particularly liked the "add-on" element of learning in helping me to get over the usual initial panic when faced with a first-aid situation. This is an excellent course for my own profession of podiatry.

Testimonial from Valerie Stewart, Podiatrist
23/09/2014 — 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course by Lakes First Aid

This was a first aid course that explained and through repetition of practicals taught me what can be done to make comfortable an injured or sick person until professional help arrives. I hope I never have to use it but I am now prepared and ready to act in an emergency. It was interesting and delivered in an accessible and easy to follow style that was intense but not dry.

Although beforehand I was concerned about spending two days away from mainstream business activities to attend the course I found it a very good worthwhile couple of days. Peter was a very competent and reassuring teacher. The sessions were well planned, good refreshments, varied practical activities and informative classroom teaching and discussions.

Excellent practical advice, concentrating on what's really important and dispelling 'myths' and removing unnecessary aid that in reality would be done in hospital.

Peter was fantastic on the course, I have been on many courses and none have been so relevant and accommodating. Peter related many of the situations and potential occurrences to stories that either he had encountered or one of his colleagues. Due to him I am now going to hopefully become a volunteer first responder in my area.

I was given the chance to choose my own provider to renew my outdoor 1st aid course and jumped at the chance to go back to Pete in the Lake District from 3 years ago. An extremely useful and enjoyable 2 days which puts 1st aid back into the realms of simple and effective treatment and adapts situations to be useful to outdoor scenarios, not just death by powerpoint.

This is now the 4th First aid course I have been on with Pete, each time I learn something new and strengthen my understanding of other things. He is a fantastic instructor and helps you to question your beliefs in what we do in fist aid. I would recommend this course to anybody (other wise I would not have done it 4 times!!). Thank you for an amazing cousre.

Testimonial from Katie Conboy
19/06/2014 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

The whole course keeps to the key points at a practical level. Real situations will be complicated by weather, location & awkward position of both casualty & first aiders. You are unlikely to have a casualty sitting on a chair in a nice warm room unless you are in the office, but life’s not always like that!.
The combination of outdoor scenarios & having to think differently is good grounding for any situation - they will all be different!

18/06/2014 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

A superb course, delivered in easy to remember bite size chunks. Ross didn't shy away from some of the 'what if' questions that some other trainers might have done and always gave sound, common sense advice. You got a real sense of the depth and breadth of his experience.
Thanks very much, will definitely be back to renew my course with Ross

Testimonial from Ian Rigg
15/06/2014 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Simon Clooney

Simon was thorough and paid careful attention to time management and detail. He was working with a group that had some scheduling difficulties and he remained flexible yet conscience of course requirements. He was receptive to questions and engaged in "what-if" scenarios but stayed focused on bringing things back to the task at hand. He maintain just the right level of humor to balance the seriousness of the course material and was able to bring the "squirrels" back in check quite easily.

Simon explained the material in a way that made it directly applicable to our students and school scenarios and also helped us see how it could be transferred to a variety of situations outside of our school arena.

I have reached the age of 49 and never done a First Aid course! This was mainly due to fear. However, I had no need to worry, the course was excellent and easy to follow in both theory and practice. Ross is a great guy, very enthusiastic ( which rubs off), clearly very knowledgable and a Fist Claas trainer. Over the years I have seen many bad ones! Maybe he should consider becoming a trainiing trainer. He is a good baker too.. 12 out of 10 , well done!

This I felt was down to the experience of the trainers and how they related the teaching to the situations they had faced.

It was very well delivered and well timed. Angie and Andrew are fantastic, making the day very interesting and enjoyable! I would highly recommend the course to everyone!!! Thank you so much Angie and Andrew!

Pete Cunnigham was excellent and passionate in delivery of the course. He was able to incorporate mountaineering/outdoor scenarios, teach us vital first aid skills and the key items we should have in our rucksack. I finished the course feeling competent in first aid and that we can all be instrumental in saving a life with first aid.

I enjoyed it!Pete was friendly, informative and clearly passionate about what he was teaching. I felt comfortable asking questions, and the practical aspect meant I could practise what we were taught - making me feel more confident should I need the first aid skills. We were very well looked after, from extensive tea and biscuits, to a super lunch, the venue was great.

Testimonial from Jennifer Valverde, Teacher , Caldew School
09/12/2013 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Another great course with more new gadgets to simulate scenarios. Not all first aid courses are the same - pick one that's run by people who have dealt with real incidents, and who have background knowledge from genuine medical experts. I'd thoroughly recommend this one.

Another three year refresher, delivered as always with great skill and experience by Pete Cunningham. Pete takes the best ideas that work and strips away all the stuff you would forget oo that don't really work. What you are left with are the basics to safe life. Came away feeling confident to apply workable first aid skills. Pete works closely with paramedics and other experts to really distil and share the 'stuff that works' in a memorable, fun, and experienced way.

One thing that makes a quality first aid course is the depth of experience and knowledge of the instructor and their ability to explain and illustrate theory and practice with real life examples. Andrew demonstrated this throughout and with obvious expertise and enthusiasm. I would be happy to recommend him to anyone.

I have been on many first aid courses over the years and this one has been the best. It tells you what you as a first aider can do and doesn't give you unnecessary information that you won't even be able to use without specialist equipment found in hospitals.

Really enjoyed my emergency first aid for the workplace course with Pete. Everything was explained clearly, with plenty of hands on time so we could practise. Pete was extremely knowledgeable, and delivered the course in a really engaging way. I honestly think I will remember the things he taught me and would be able to put it into practice. Great lunch provided at the Eagle and Child too, all in all a really good course.

The course was brilliant. There was absolutely the right balance between seriousness and humour and I was sad that it was only a two day course as I would have happily come back for the rest of the week.I now feel confident that I and my colleagues could deal with anything that presented itself at school or in another environment in a calm and professional manner and that I would be able to help someone in need of first aid without causing more harm. I have learnt so much in two days and the balance of practical and theory means I will remember all the important bits. A fantastic course - I would thoroughly recommend it for anyone who works with children.

Testimonial from Michelle Woodcock

I really enjoyed the course, the skills were all delivered in an outdoor context which was suburb. .
Simon was able to utilise his own experiences to explain why the skills we were learning were delivered in the way they were.
Simon was happy for discussions on areas of first aid to happen to allow others to share thoughts and to make us realise that there is no definite 'correct' way of doing first aid.

I've been on many first aid courses over the years, but this one was the best to date. Pete Cunningham cuts out the waffle and just tells you what you need to know. Less is most definitely more. The good weather certainly helped this weekend and getting out onto the hills to practice scenarios was a great addition. Thanks again.

Great course, I really enjoyed both the content and the delivery. It was practical and challenging, inspiring active participation that relied on team work and problem solving. Pete's experience created authenticity and demonstrated the importance of learning first aid as a valuable skill, rather than just a course to that must be completed to fullfill a requirement. I would definitely do this course again, as well reccommend it.

I can honestly say that, in the past four years, I have never had a training course quite as informative and enjoyable as the Outdoor First Aid with Simon.
I found his approach to be very professional and relaxed, he was very charismatic and projected quite a considerable amount of information without sounding dull and monotonous. He came across very friendly and approachable and was clearly very knowledgeable about the subject of the course. I hope any further first aid training we do at The Phoenix Youth Project will be through Active-Aid.

Testimonial from Leigh Mavir, Youth Development Worker, The Phoenix Youth Project
16/09/2013 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Simon Clooney

I really enjoyed the course. I would have liked to probably done more serious scenarios like the bus crash as that was actually quite distressing even in a role play situation! If we had run a few more it might mean I had better muscle memory for a bad situation.

I really enjoyed the course, it was intensive, but hands-on. I felt comfortable to ask questions and discuss ideas with the group. It would have been nice to have extra pen and paper, to write notes. I like to do this at times, to help remember. Simon was extremely professional, humourous and focused. Nice to use the outdoor space. Mix up the teams, practice many many scenarios.

It was an excellent course, very well run. I particularly thought the common sense and grounded pragmatic approach to First Aid was really effective. It focused on the key areas and supoted a clear understanding of priorities in an incident.
I would thoroughly recommend the course to other persons.

A combination of bang up to date training and approach to outdoor first aid from a highly skilled and experienced trainer, with a delivery of real quality made this course the best first aid course I have attended so far. Add to that a great venue and competitive rates makes it outstanding in my book. Thanks Pete

Pete is a very impressive educator in that he achieves the difficult balance of facilitating the group to ensure that their experience and knowledge is respected and used, whilst at the same time training the group to ensure that they receive 'best practice' information in an informed and consistent format.

The combination of practical and theory based learning was spot on. Also the book that I received, by First Aid Cumbria, explains everything really well and is a fantastic resource.

He had the right mix of being focused on teaching the skills, practical sessions to try out what we were being taught and relaxed way to ensure all participants had an enjoyable time. I felt great confidence in his teaching as when he was asked questions that were more in depth than the course would normally go he was able to to share his apparent deep knowledge and experience in that area.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course having been on many first-aid courses, this one being the most useful and the quickest! The course tutor (Steve) was very knowledgeable and based most it on the outdoor industry. I loved the fact that we got to play around with many scenarios outside and put it into practice. I definately learned some very useful stuff and will certainly be passing round the knowledge to other staff members. I hope Steve provides my next first-aid course in 3 years time.

The only suggestion I would like to make is that I personally learn better if able to take notes. There was an awful lot of information to take in and I think I would have benefitted from taking notes throughout to help it sink in. It was great that we were given a booklet which when I read through am sure will help the learning sink in further.

First aid delivered in a very professional manner, clear and concise, practical and fun. Excellent rapport with all ‘students’, incorporating valuable advice from Hospitals, Surgeons and Paramedics.
Pete has the ability to draw on his own vast personal experiences resulting in a very stress free, relaxed and confidence building few days. I have been on several first aid courses in the past and without doubt Pete made this one the most real, relevant and meaningful for all concerned.
Highly recommended.

A brilliant course. I really enjoy the fact that Pete has worked closely with paramedics and doctors to get to the point of what a non medic trained person can actually do.
The use of training equipment and material proved to be very effective.
Fist aid is now as simple as ever, which is great as I can retain the information for longer and feel confident to put the information in to practice should the event arise. Thank you

Testimonial from Leon Bond
07/03/2013 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

This was a really good and enjoyable course. The emphasis on doing a limited number of important things well and spending a fair amount of time in rehearsing the practical skills needed to preserve life meant that we were not overburdened with superfluous information. The people on the course also helped to make the experience more valuable - many of them had extensive outdoor experience that we could all benefit from. Pete was a really engaging course tutor. He actively invited participation from course members to allow their experiences to illustrate the course. His course materials and teaching aids were very useful and he gave good practical advice on what we might want to carry in a sensible First Aid kit in the outdoors. There were 2 GPs on the course (I was one of them). We both felt that the emphasis on delivering safe First Aid was right on target. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in working with groups in the outdoors or even to someone who wanted to have useful skills that might be needed at any time.

Last week I attended a two-day course conducted by Pete. Yesterday I was one of the first people to arrive at the scene of an RTA. I was very glad of my training and DRSABC and AVPU both really came into play! Maintaining airway was a big factor. But I also appreciated the work that we had done on managing the casualty - it proved so useful and I felt calm and focussed on looking after her, communicating with her and reassuring her. Thanks, Pete, for genuinely useful and important training - and I know who I'll be coming back to for my next refresher in 3 years' time!

It's refreshing to find first aid providers, who closely listen to the medics and then adjust the content of their course to only include the primary aspects of first-aid; thus simplifying the do's and don'ts which from experience I find helps enormously when faced with the stress of a real scenario.
The frequent references to actual experiences also helps cement those all important facts.
It was a very well presented course,{even with the few technical hitches} with the content and speed of delivery aimed well at the ability of the people attending.
Thanks... Rex Pickles Outdoor pursuits tutor at the Bendrigg Trust

This course was exceptionally well delivered. It was a fantastic course, that focused on being REALISTIC to what actually happens out and about in the outdoors.... not what happens in the comfort of a training room.
This was by far the best first aid course I have been on.
Thank you so much for a very valuable course.
I'll be back in 3 years!!!

The course delivered fully in relation to our practical needs. That understates the full benefit we gained from the experience. The bonus for me was the experience inputs from the other course members from their specialist perspectives.

Great course, thanks. It's really helped by your extensive experience of doing all this for real, which keeps it practical, applicable and engaging. It tells you what you really need and strips out what you don't.

The course was one of the best first aid course I have ever attended. Very practical and no nonsense. I like that.... No one will remember complicated procedures in emergency situations, especially if they are not in jobs that get them to apply first aid skills regularly. I definitely recommend that all adults working with kids should get certified.

Testimonial from Jamie Pimblett
01/12/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I have been on many first aid courses over the years and for the first time I have come away with a sense that I will know exactly what to do in an emergency. I have attended and helped with several incidents as a passer by and whilst with hindsight I know I was useful, I was always hampered by uncertainty, mostly because previous courses had covered so many minor aspects of first aid that I never had any real understanding of priorities. This has now completely changed. The Active Aid approach to strip it down to the bare essentials and make sure candidates have a thorough understanding of those is the best possible training for people like myself who do not have enough opportunities to reinforce massive amounts of medical information through regular practise. As a D of E Leader, I now feel infinitely more confident in my own abilities and the training was delivered so simply that I can easily pass this on the the participants. I was frankly dreading going on 'yet another first aid course' with expectations of coming away with a head load of half learned facts, two thirds of which I would have forgotten before I was home, and an overwhelming sense of having wasted a weekend. Several weeks on, I haven't had a chance to practise, I haven't really discussed the contents of the course but I have still retained everything I learned and feel ready to use it whenever needed. I don't think anyone could ask for more from a first aid course.

Testimonial from Shirley Heath
01/12/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

This was the best first aid course I've done, and I think it's about the 12th or 13th - past ones included Dr Ieuan Jones (Bangor) Mountain First Aid courses (3 or 4) and several REC level 2 - this was by far better, partly because of the excellent mix of delivery styles (talk, video, indoor & outdoor practicals, and (most importantly in my view) the excellent current, up-to-date knowledge of the instructor (Pete) which was put across in a using an excellent mix of urban and outdoor examples which we are likely to come across. For me the course filtered out the most important parts of first aid so that I am more likely to remember them when they are needed. Really enjoyed it. Well done Pete.

As an outdoor instructor for well over Ten years It has been compulsary for me to attend regular first aid course to stay valid. These courses have been from a variety of providers but Pete (First Aid Cumbria) are by far the best!

The course was for the first time interesting, useful, to the point and almost enjoyable (instead of a bind!)Pete is knowledgable, interesting and has a sensible approach to first aid. I wish them all the best for the future of the company and hope they continue to deliver good value, quaility, no nonesense first aid courses.

P.s. Great quality refreshments too(which is always nice!)

This was by far the best first aid course I have attended - and there have been many! It is the only one where I emerged actually feeling I was equipped to deal with a practical incident, on or off the hill, without being totally confused by irrelevant information. I would really recommend it - practical, fun and potentially life saving. Thanks very much indeed!!

Testimonial from Liz Burnley
21/11/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I've done four of these courses now and Pete's course content and his delivery style was the best so far. Finally a 1st Aid training provider delivering a 'common sense' approach to 1st Aid.

Fab, concentrated on what you can actually do to make a difference (not eg following a 15step tick list that you would probably do some part of it wrong and by the time you did it all, it would probably be too late)

19/11/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

was the first time I took part of a First Aid course, I really did not know what to expect or what kind of system was going to be taking place.
The pre course information was clear and cover all the aspects that were going to be happening in the two days.
The course was fantastic and the way that Pete explained and related topics were very clear, practical and realistic.
It certainly did not give me the idea that First Aid is difficult, all the contrary, I am now confident and ready if any of my help is needed under work circumstances or just through life, and this is because Peter made sure that the tasks he gave us were day to day living.
I really enjoyed the mixture within the group, there was people with previous experience, people like me and even a gp, so it made interaction really easy and it helped the process of learning relax and fun.
I will definitely recommend Peter and Active Aid to anybody who is after a First aid course and I will certainly come back when my certificate runs out.
Thank you very much Peter for making it so clear and for giving me the confidence to get out there, be able to help when I am needed, and hopefully give someone another chance.

This was my 3rd course with Pete. As ever i have thoroughly enjoyed it. The current course is much more practical and relevant - i love the simplicity of the approach (focusing on what a first aider CAN do), and not being bombarded with irrelevant or impractical info or advise. Pete has a very genuine and down to earth style, and his stories and experience speak for themselves, and add to the application of the content, and bringing it to life.

Its really useful to refresh previous skills learned especially if you've not had cause to use since, 3 years doesn't seem that long but in reality it is.

Simple, varied, logical. Pete reinforced simple approaches to numerous first aid scenarios in the outdoors through various methods and opportunities.

After twenty years of first aid courses and attending numerous incidents, this course was exactly what I was hoping for.

A course like this will only show it's worth if a First Aid situation arrises. It can never be truly evaluated until then. However, this particular course has given me more confidence then any other one before, that I actually will be able to administer First Aid if it comes to it.

Pete was an exceptional trainer, understanding the mental barriers to comprehension in the context of practical exercises in groups.
I had done a work first aid course several years ago and remember vowing never to tell anyone I had been on the course because I felt I had gained nothing from it. I feel after going on this course I will be willing to approach the scene of an accident and evaluate if there is anything I can do - as long as I build into my regular training a refresher session of the main lessons learnt - this being something which could have been emphasised in the course.

This course has a refreshingly pragmatic approach to first-aid and I would reccommend it to anyone looking to qualify in first aid who works or plays in the outdoors. I whole-heartedly beleive that I could aid a fellow climber should the worst happen and feel happier that I would be able to recall the essentials rather that waste precious time sifting through the previous training I have received. Good work guys. Please do keep it up!

Pete really gets you to think about why you do what you're doing and simplifies first aid down to what is crucially important - keeping someone alive. Dispensing with the unnecessary, which is what Active Aid do, is vital if the lessons are going to stick in a real emergency situation.

This is the 2nd Active Aid course I've been on. If anything, even better than the first (which to date had been the best in 25yrs of instructing): There has been considerable investment in equipment and thought with regards to how people learn best. Initially sceptical at using the high tech part of the course - I'm now a total convert - well done Pete

It was a great course , good clear simple learning that cuts out a lot of the froth that is no where near relevant to immediate care. It is very obvious that Pete is passionate about what he does, and it shines through.No question was unanswered. We were all very well looked after too , food and tea/coffee aplenty. Highly recommended:-) Rich Pyne

Having attended many 1st Aid Courses in my time I am in no doubt that this was the most practical, enjoyable and informative course that I have experienced. Pete's engaging style of delivery, the accounts of first-hand 1st Aid experiences, his visual teaching aids, AV resources and oral explanations meant that the key points were put across very effectively. I can wholeheartedly recommend his course to any individual or organisation who wants a practical, no nonsense, common sense approach to 1st Aid. Thank you for a most enjoyable two days.

Pete Cunningham is clearly expert in first aid, both in his knowledge and his first hand experience of emergancy situations. Furthermore, he has the ability to convey his expertise in a practical way so that a novice like me can learn a great deal. There was ample equipment to assist our learning and the practical sessions were excellent, especially those outdoors where a grass slope and a rain shower added a touch of realism to our work. The Eagle and Child was a congenial setting and provided a very good lunch, with plenty of choice for all tastes.

The fact that time flew is always a great indicator that you are on a good course. Having completed this course three years previously it was great to have the opportunity to go over the material again. The part of this course I enjoyed the most was having the opportunity to practice the First Aid skills over and over again as this really does help to fix them in your brain. Simon was excellent at explaining why we were carrying out the different parts of the first aid treatment and how they would help. By going outside and trying out our skills there really made you feel it was real.

Despite previous training in first aid, I began the course with a great deal of anxiety and discomfort about my abilities as a first aid responder--16 hours later my confidence soared and I now feel better-prepared to respond during an emergency.

I attended a day course on 17 May 2011. The delivery was superb, by a tutor who knew his stuff. His years of experience and passion for teaching were evident. Knowing you’re being taught by someone who’s dealt first-hand with emergency situations on countless occasions is highly reassuring. His own experiences and his links with the world of paramedics provided several fascinating anecdotes of real life situations, which hugely enhanced the learning experience. (And he was extremely patient with all my questions!)
The atmosphere was friendly, informal and highly informative. By the end of the course, I’d learned loads, had fun along the way, and most importantly, gained the confidence to react correctly in an emergency situation.
I highly recommend this course.

23/03/2011 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by First Aid Cumbria.

this course was better than any 1st aid course i have ever attended. I think that because the tutor is actively practisng his information was relevant and up to date. The things I was taught felt like they were much more common sense based. Previous courses I have attended have left me thinking that there was no way I would attempt to give 1st aid through worrying that i may get the breaths wrong or tie a bandage wrongly or forget to check pockets!! This course left me feeling that I would happily 'give it a go'. The tutor was focused, accommodating and welcoming. The venue was easy to get to and the refreshments were delicious. The video clips helped to make real life situations more relevant. The 1st aid book we were given is very useful too. Thank you very much. Lydia

A superb couple of days that was both informative and thought provoking. Courses that I have done with other providers adequately provided me with the skills to deal with emergencies, this course went a lot further than this however in that it encouraged you to think around an issue and apply what you had learnt more specifically. As a result I think what I have learnt will stay with me a lot longer than has previously been the case.

I really enjoyed the course & the way it was delivered. I felt all the time that pete was a man who knew what he was talking about through hands on experience. The venue was suitable for the training base & having cooked food on site was exellant. Having a meal halfway through each day was a really good extra particularly being free to students!

I can't praise the course & provider much more. I was very impressed, as I was last time I went on this course 3 years ago. It opened my eyes to new thinking & developements particularly in the advances of techknowledgy which can help us as first aiders.

18/01/2011 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

So I’ve just been on a first aid course with First Aid Cumbria for the last two days and I would highly recommend them. The trainer was Pete Cunningham who is very good, certainly knows what he’s talking about and has an awful lot of background knowledge. Now we’ve all done first aid courses and we all know the drill. Two days of sitting in a room with equally bored people staring at a powerpoint presentation and about an hour outside if you’re lucky. This was different. Very interactive, lots of practical sessions, lots of discussions and chatting and a good deal of banter. Yes a lot of it was presented in Powerpoint but the slides were informative without overloading. Quite a few videos and movies added in to lighten the load. And to top it all off The Eagle and Child Inn is a great venue with a great pub lunch both days included in the cost of the course and more fresh coffee and biscuits than you could shake a stick at!
These last two days have changed the way that I think about First Aid. It doesn’t need to be complicated and formulaic. It’s all about a bit of common sense and instincts. There is so much that I have learnt on first aid courses in the past that now seems so pointless. First Aid Cumbria really are a breath of fresh air and the next time your certificate is due for renewal, I suggest you give them a ring. Thanks Pete!

The course was delivered in a freindly, stress-free manner and at the end of the course I felt that instead of feeling confused about trying to diagnose specific problems, I was able to treat the patient to the best of my ability until specialist help could take over. I also thought it was both interesting and useful to see and 'play about with' a defibrilator and an epipen.

Also good use of visual aids (film clips,pictures,dummies etc) which aid memory. The course book is clearly set out, and the weekend course has given me the enthusiasm to read it!

Well organised and well run course that took you beyond the normal senarios you get on a standard first aid course, this course was much more realastic of the situations you might come across in the real world, Well done Peter.

Everything an Outdoor First Aid course should be. Useful and relevant information with plenty of practical scenarios to apply the techinques and procedures of 1st aid. Perfectly delivered by Pete (the trainer) ensuring we got the most out of our training, with a few laughs thrown in for good measure.

You were able tto give good, realistic advice and you went into a lot of detail, looking at many different hypothetical situations. You also made it relevant to what we do as a hillwalking society. It was enjoyable and worthwhile.
Thanks

A number of us took part in an excellent Outdoor First Aid course at our climbing hut over the weekend. We learned about the theory and principles of First Aid which can be applied in everyday situations such as in the workplace, pub and at the local Co-op as well as in emergencies on the hill and at the crag, and we had the opportunity to participate in hands-on responses to various scenarios. If you haven't done a similar course and have the opportunity to do so, I recommend it highly.

Before taking the course I was apprehensive about whether I would feel able to put what I was about to learn into practice into a real-life situation. I was impressed by the way Pete took the fear out first aid - fear of getting it wrong, fear of going 'blank' and fear of having the confidence to act in an emergency situation. The hands-on responses to various scenarios that we practised were extremely useful.

I really enjoyed the Outdoor First Aid course,at Staveley, it was really practical and hands on giving me the confidence to deal with any incidents that could occur, when working with groups of young people, in the outdoors.
The scenarios were particularly useful as these were similar to the incidnts you could have to deal with for real.
I feel confident I could now deal with most emergencies, using the skills and techniques so excellently delivered by Pete Cunningham. His delivery and teaching style was superb and just right for people who work in the outdoors.
Thank you very much for making the course so interesting.

28/02/2010 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I felt that there could have been more practicals in between the talks on the first day. However, overall this is still the best first aid course I have been on as the outdoor setting provides a certain reality to the situation that first aid courses focused entirely inside lack.

Testimonial from Emma Rowley
25/02/2010 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Much nicer experience than I was expecting. I enjoyed it. The learning atmosphere was excellent and while I was much less experienced than many of the participants I was never made to feel inadequate or less useful. Thanks, Pete.

24/02/2010 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I found it difficult to find a good outdoor first aid course but Active Aid have succeeded. Pete is an excellent training instructor made a serious subject both interesting and entertaining - a good way for trainees to absorb and retain information. The balance between audio/visual and practical sessions was spot on. "Tell me and I will forget, show me and I will remember, let me do it and I will understand"; In that respect, given the absence of real casualties (thankfully), the course was a complete success. Thank-you.

The course was very useful, full of common sense and practical sessions and ideas. There was plenty of time for additional concerns to be shared, aired and resovled.I felt that we learnt & consolidated more due to continual assessment rather than trying to memorize satisitcs & facts for a test at the end. Thank you

Excellent course.
Trainer was very informative and delivered in a professional and easy manner!
Questions were answered continuously, thoroughly and further advice given where needed.
Constant review of personal performance was excellent and made the learning process alot easier.
It was also excellent to have a trainer who was experienced in the outdoor environment and could deliver the course to that specific environment.

I thought the course was excellent. Pete was a fantastic teacher; everything was thoroughly explained including demonstrations. The course structure was well organised with every lesson being reinforced and built upon as we moved through the course content. Pete was well experienced, able to answer all my annoying questions whilst ensuring we didn’t go too far off track and was able to give his own experiences to support the treatment. The venue was excellent, good classroom and great food. A very well organised and enjoyable course.

I really enjoyed the two days and have learnt a great deal of theory and skills that I feel confident I could put into practice if the need ever arose. I will recommend to others without hesitation and would definatly attend more of your courses.

I had high expectations of the course and of the instructor, and I was not disappointed. Pete delivered a superb course, and kept me engaged even when I felt I was tiring. We had good fun outdoors and that's always the best way to learn. It feels good to have updated my skills. I will definitely go with Adventure Learning again, and recommend it highly.

This is a well-planned, practical course, led by an instructor with huge experience. Nearly every aspect is 'hands on', often outdoors and in the rain. Every committed walker and mountaineer should do it.

I found the course extremely useful for me and have learnt so many new things that I can apply to my career. Learning the emergency procedure theory and having it all coming together during the practical outdoor sessions was brilliant - the instructor was very informative and fluid with everything throughout. 10/10!

I was prompted to seek first aid training after having had to call Mountain Rescue while out with friends. Fell-walking is not a risk-free pastime and some basic first aid knowledge is well worth having. This course was perfect for my needs: there was continuous reinforcement of the basics, building up to team problem-solving in an outdoor setting. I feel better prepared to deal with a future emergency.

Testimonial from Andrew Horner

Active Aid provided one of the best first aid courses I've had the pleasure of attending over a coaching career of 25 years. I found the balance of presentation and practical to be just right, and the delivery excellent. Active Aid also successfully avoided the usual "siester effect" in the afternoons - high praise indeed.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Active Aid to friends and colleagues, and will Actively do this in the future!

Would have liked a little more info before the course: in particular wanted to double-check with someone that it was a suitable course for me working towards ML (which it was)but was unable to speak to anyone who knew.
That said, had a great time and couldn't fault trainer, content, venue or value for money so many thanks!

Pete - great training course 100% interactive and I learnt masses and felt very supported by you and the other participants.Would recommend Adventure Learning to others.
Only negative was that the anecdotes got a bit much after a while, so may be worth asking students who have obviously done 1st aid before to share some of their experiences in the group.
That apart it was great. See you in 3 years!

I thought the course was very well run and enjoyable to attend. The course was well adapted to cover the outdoor scenarios many of us (all students worked in the outdoors) would face. The outside practical element was especially useful, and if anything, more of this would be beneficial as these are the conditions we would be working in, rather than a nice flat floor in a pub.

Testimonial from Fleur Spore
13/01/2009 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I do feel more ready to approach different situations able to look at the circumstances and have a clearer sense of the aspects I need to consider and how to make the situation most secure etc, given the circumstances. I would have liked to have had even more time spent on different scenarios, possibly starting by the end of the first day, and perhaps extending the use of items we would be carrying in a rucksack. The scoring system was excellent as it kept driving home the fact that the essential needs have to be remembered every single time.

I found Pete Cunningham an excellent trainer, able to make us feel we were working together and concerned about the same matters and yet also clearly a thoughtful authority on first aid needs and situations. The way that he encouraged some discussion without letting this take over or deflect us from the central needs was excellent.

The setting added to the good experience - far better than a bare hall. The sense that the people at Little Gidding were interested in us having a successful time added to the positive sense.

The course was excellent, 10/10. The trainer was really good, I liked the way that he could use his own experience as a mountain rescuer. I liked that there was lots of 'hands on' for us, as it meant that the information went in better, and it made it more interesting. I enjoyed getting outside to put what we had learnt into a practical situation, and the scenarios made you think!

The course was not just dictated each step of the way, the trainer really made you think and consider different approaches to situations which really help me to learn. Thanks!
