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.

i have been on many first aid courses in my 33 years of work but this one was by far the most beneficial .

A really well taught/ renewal of knowledge. Andrew is very thorough and straight-talking for everyone to understand. No questions are left unanswered. Participation has changed due to COVID, but still thoroughly thought out with the use of dummies and props rather than people.I hope,I will never need to use CPR or the defib, but will feel confident if necessary to use in the future.Thank you for a great day of learning.

Testimonial from Caroline Wilson, care practitioner, Witherslack Group
01/09/2021 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

Having attending many first aid courses this was by far the best as it was delivered by paramedics who had real life examples for all the medical conditions we studied. It was fascinating and kept us all engaged. The level of the equipment we used was excellent, the CPR dummies having a counter on then to see percentage of compressions and breaths was really helpful and interesting. We will definitely be recommending and using Kentdale in the future.Thank you both I feel confident and capable with delivering first aid.

16/08/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Active First Aid Training Limited

A great course delivered by a hugely experienced trainer. It was an at times graphic look at the reality of dealing with certain situations, without any time wasted on applying immaculate bandages. Hopefully I'll never need it, but David's descriptions of the noises and sights we may encounter may just help to reduce that initial shock when dealing with a situation in the real world.

27/05/2021 — ' First Aid at Work' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Taught by an excellent, emotionally literate trainer, this outdoor and paediatric first aid course provided coherent information about everything one would need to know to be able to render first aid effectively. Peter focussed on getting us to use all the information available when assessing a casualty, thinking about why we were carrying out a particular course of actions and knowing when we had to act really quickly. Even though I have completed several first aid trainings over the years, I learned an incredible amount and, more importantly, understand how to use this.

Testimonial from Helen Brigham

The Covid protocols were excellent, I'd been feeling a bit unsure about how I would react to my first in-person training course since the pandemic broke out but I felt really comfortable and confident that we were doing everything we could to keep each other safe while making the course still useful.

Testimonial from Robin Sanderson
30/04/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

The Outdoor First Aid 2-day course by Lakes First Aid has a comprehensive and well-thought through syllabus, focused on outdoor leaders, their needs and the potential scenarios with which they may need to deal. Significant value-add came from the course instructor's long-standing involvement with the local mountain rescue team, enabling him to convincingly contextualise the course material and offer authoritative personal insight and perspective. The instructor’s relaxed but informative delivery style was a real boon and made the course an absolute pleasure – just the right touch applied in keeping the lessons to time while making time to discuss individual experiences to aid exploration of the topic. I was impressed by the level of detail evident in the COVID secure procedures under which the course operated. In short, top marks for content, top marks for delivery, top marks for knowledge transfer and top marks for student experience.

I was extremely impressed (and surprised) by the technology in the "dummies", we got instant feedback on our smart phones on how we were doing when performing CPR on infants, children and adults. FAC's dummies "tell" you when you get it right! When performing First Aid it is critical that one can perform good CPR and the kit and instruction ensured we did. Superb teaching.

Due to Covid this was an unusually hands off course, but with individual equipment this course was kept friendly and safe. Peter has a great knowledge built up over the years and imparted some of this to us in a friendly and informative manner. Nothing was rushed and any question answered. A great course well run.

Fantastic training facility and provision - everything is thought about and you are well catered for while there. REally professional, well organised business with super friendly and approcahable owners who deliver the training as well as continuing in their professional mediacl roles. Highly recommend Angie & Andy as trainers...such an interactive unique training style that makes the information memorable! All this PLUS super COVID safe space and procedure to enable training to go ahead during the pandemic. Some quirky ideas to enable participants to get active whilst staying within their 2m boxes!

You just don't know what incidents you may be faced with each day,so to have this information could be the difference between life and death.
The course information carried out by Ross was delivered in such a way that it put everyone in the group at ease.
Alot more people should attend this course as it gives you the knowledge and confidence to tackle the task in hand.

Pete was a friendly, thoughtful and competent trainer, often able to relate the information presented to his own real life experiences. This helped interpret how the info found in training manuals could actually be applied most effectively in situations you may find yourself in when you need to call on this knowledge (hopefully never!). Best and most valuable two days training I have ever done. Wholeheartedly recommend Pete at First Aid Cumbria.

It was delivered by Pete incredibly well and during Covid, I felt safe on the course in the venue and the course covered plenty of self-led practicals too. This mixed course approach should be considered in future. Areas I have not covered before on other courses such as heavy bleeds was something particularly useful to learn about.

The course was great value! Although it was intense I learnt so much over the two day period. Andrew was extremely knowledgeable.It was helpful that he could provide first hand examples of events he had been to, not just telling us how to help those injured. I was nervous about going amid the pandemic but it was so safe; we all had individual dolls and equipment to practice with, everything was throughly cleaned and there was an abidance of PPPE (masks, gloves, wipes etc).

I think Pete did a stellar job of delivering the course, especially with respect to having to mitigate the risks of Coronavirus transmission.
Even though it was not possible to perform first aid procedures on each other, I think he managed the situation excellently. I also felt extremely safe with the Covid measures he had put in place: for example, desks 2 metres apart from each other, sanitising material constantly available for personal use and for the cleaning of first aid equipment, having good ventilation in the room and gentle reminders on applying Covid safe practice.
I would highly recommend First Aid Cumbria to others. Thanks Pete!

This is the best first aid course I have done. Pete is so well informed and passionate about first aid and this really came across in his delivery. I really enjoyed how practical the course felt. Having our own adult, child and baby mannequin to practise CPR on alongside use of an app to self assess, really helped me to gain confidence in this skill. I also found the catastrophic bleed section incredibly useful and loved practising direct digit pressure and packing on the squidgy wound cubes. The videos Pete used over the course of the 2 days were all very engaging and helped to cement my learning. The content and Pete's delivery both really helped to simplify all aspects of first aid and I definitely feel like I won't be forgetting the basics as quickly as I normally would. Also, I felt utterly reassured by the Covid risk assessment and policy that Pete had put in place.

A really enjoyable course and extremely well delivered given the limitations of covid-19. It was really valuable being able to practice the practical and contemporary aspects of First Aid using the training equipment. Pete went to significant effort in creating a safe learning environment with every attendee working with their own training equipment at an individual work station in a spacious venue.

Testimonial from Nigel Edwards
04/11/2020 — 'Outdoor First Aid 1 day' course by Lakes First Aid

Definitely the best first-aid course I've attended. It was clear, well structured and well delivered, covering all the crucial aspects of emergency first-aid. The step-by-step protocols and handy acronyms were really helpful and these were reinforced by the simulated scenarios, which challenged us to apply the skills we had learned in a more realistic and variable environment. There were also lots of really useful insights, 'myth-busters' and other tips specific to the outdoor setting. Ross was upbeat and approachable, extremely knowledgeable and great at responding to questions. While I hope never to have to use the things we learned, the course left me feeling far more confident. Thank you!

Having been on First Aid at work courses before, this was by far the most interesting, with anecdotes from the trainers. It was most informative. There was enough information given, without it being overwhelming for non-medical people. The delivery was very good, with the right amount of breaks and coffee!

This course was packed full of useful facts, hints and tips that help you put the learning into practice. The trainer has 35 years of experience as a paramedic and therefore has a massive toolbox of information to offer. Andrew's enthusiasm and passion for his subject is inspiring. Thanks for a great day, and for all the info. Hopefully I won't need to use it!x

Another thoroughly enjoyable course at Kentdale. There is so much content to learn but Andrew delivers this in such a straightforward way that it seems interesting to listen to and easier to remember.The fact that he can relate his past experiences to many of the conditions makes it so much more interesting.I felt, as I did last time,so much more confident now my 1st Aid memory is refreshed and I have learned knew facts too.

Ross and Luke delivered this course in a relaxed but very informative style.

They clearly knew more but were careful to keep things clear and simple. This was further emphasised by Debs as she kept referring back to the key points whenever we had problems to solve.

The trainer started with the fundamentals of first aid, giving us plenty of time to practice primary surveys in the outdoors, before building up our knowledge and skills from there. No previous knowledge was assumed.
On the softer side, it was also lovely to be provided with such great coffee, tea, biscuits and cake ... and to have a warm hall to retreat to during the wild winter weather!

Testimonial from Kerry Rennie, Lead Adviser, Coastal Access, Natural England
04/02/2020 — 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Trish was knowledgeable, likeable and pitched the content at just the right level. She was obviously a total natural in her field of expertise with a wealth of knowledge and a really personable way of teaching, making the course 'fun' when appropriate but also emphasising the serious nature of the content. Her experience as a nurse shone through but wasn't intimidating and didn't try and scare us with gory stories which I have had in the past from previous trainers, she just shared good examples when appropriate.
From a practical point of view, all equipment was of a high standard and in good working order and the schedule was well organised and thought through with enough variety to keep us all engaged.
Most importantly, I have been left feeling really confident in my first aid knowledge and feel I would deal with a situation to the best of my ability should one arise.
I have been on a lot of first aid courses and Trish was by far the best trainer I have ever had. I would never have guessed she had been only teaching to 'non-medical' students for a few months (I think this is what she said!)




Testimonial from Laura White, Collections Officer, National Trust

I think the course was great and has definitely given me more confidence for the future. Andrew and Angie are great teachers and make sure to not move too quick or too slow depending on the course content. I enjoyed the mixture of theory and practical work, and also thought it was beneficial to see how these skills are used in real life through the stories Andrew and Angie connected to the different topics.

Testimonial from Sophie Hodgson, World of Beatrix Potter
02/02/2020 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

Quite simply the best first aid course I've ever been on. Ross's time working in outdoor rescue meant that he has a level of personal practical experience that is rare in the sector and this came across in the design and delivery of the course. The inclusion of well thought through role playing exercises that gradually grew in complexity whilst reinforcing the key learning outcomes was really useful and meant that I left the two days feeling confident in my ability to handle a real-world situation if one ever arises.

20/01/2020 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Simon Clooney

This course was a dynamic program with practical skills, enough theoretical knowledge to make relevant meaning, and a smidge of way-higher information to satisfy the most intellectually curious. Hands-on skills followed directly from the theoretical as taught, and question-and-answer sessions were super informative, always on-point, and validated both the content learning and the students’ different learning styles and level of prior experience. A highlight of the program was the respect that quickly developed between the instructors and students, and hence, among the entire group - super! Over the years I’ve taken my full share of EMS and outdoor emergency care courses, and Simon, along with Mark when he weighed in on the second day, delivered a product that was among the top I can recall in terms of value-added “I’m really glad I took this course” learning experiences in this field.

Having completed at least eleven 1st aid courses over the last thirty years or so, I cannot rate this course, and this trainer highly enough. from the get go, this course was tailored to fit both the group and the individual needs of each candidate. Style and methods of delivery where engaging, informative, relevant and thought provoking. I walked away from this course with more confidence in my skills and how to apply them, and with greater clarity on my priorities and role as a 1st aider.

I've been on 4-5 other First aid courses over the years, with a range of providers, but this was the best. The approach was effective and a good learning environment, with lots of practical elements. The use of technology with the resuscitation dummies gave a lot of confidence that you were doing it sufficiently well to be effective.

Testimonial from John Douglas, Senior Instructor
05/12/2019 — 'Outdoor First Aid 1 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

This was a refreshing approach to first aid, direct and informative without being overwhelming in its content. It was easy to see the wood for the trees and know what is really important in any given scenario. The use of resuscie annies, one to each participant and the ability to get instant feedback via my android phone was so useful in improving my technique in giving CPR and seeing the workings of the defibrillator was really helpful. An enjoyable day.

This was the first formal first aid course I've ever attended, and I feel much more confident after it to step up and try to help someone in need of first aid. Advice was detailed but digestible and useable, even in an outdoor situation. Pete was friendly, helpful and created a great learning dynamic with a lot of dialogue, active engagement and opportunity to use and practice techniques. Even after lunch, we were all engaged and the session was never dull and always useful. I would definitely recommend.

Am indebted to Pete Cunningham for the way he led this Ist Aid course using both personal experience and his extensive knowledge of real life situations I would likely come across. We had time to practice and repeat key elements both in the classroom and in the outdoors. Pete kept the information simple but relevant and balanced humour with concern for the vital information I needed to hopefully be an effective 1st aider. A pub lunch, copious tea and biscuits and some useful equipment takeaways were very welcome bonuses. This is my 2nd course with Pete and would have no hesitation in booking again

I enjoyed this first aid course (which is probably the first one I've enjoyed), the teaching was simple and easy to understand. The practical was explained beforehand and done in a way that I didn't feel on show but the tutor was on hand to ask any questions and help if needed.
I came away far more confident in my abilities due to the way the course was taught. And because the right amount of information was given with ways to remember it, I don't think I will forget the training so when I have to use it, I will remember what I need to do.
(And it was really nice to go on a course where no horror stories were told, we were just simply taught to do first aid.)
Massive thank you!

Their approach to teaching was faultless, a perfect balance of practical and theory based learning really made the course enjoyable.

The course was lots of fun with a real good mix of theory and practical assessments. They made me feel at ease and kept me engaged and focused for the full day.

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.

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.

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.

As a sufferer of social anxiety and mobility problems I was particularly impressed by the human centred approach of the trainers, patient and encouraging and allowing the option to opt into exercises rather than opting out and being isolated from the rest of the course participants. Absolutely first rate training skills!!!

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,

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
13/03/2019 — 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course by Lakes First Aid

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.

The emergency first aid at work course with Kentdale fit our needs excellently. The two trainers clearly had an expert understanding of the subject, but also an understanding of our working environment and the first aid situations we would most often encounter. The course was highly experiential, directly practising each subject, which matched our philosophy of learning at Dove Nest Group and gave us confidence that we would be able to handle an emergency situation in the right way.

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.

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!

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.

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.

I found the EFAW training day informative and enjoyable.

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.

If you want to actually stand some chance of saving a life then this is the course for you. If you have any intention of working with me or going on an adventure with me then you need this course. I can look after you, can you do the same for me?

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!

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!

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.

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.

I would would thoroughly recommend this course. Peter uses a variety of teaching styles including talking, films, pictures, real and demo kit, and practical work inside and out. 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.

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.

This is the best outdoor first aid course I've attended and one that I'd thoroughly recommend to anyone working with groups in the outdoors. The course was very well structured and included frequent scenarios that allowed participants to progressively develop their skills and confidence.

By a country mile, the best First Aid course I've been on.

Testimonial from Gill Notman

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!

I would highly recommend this course to professionals and people who love the outdoors.

A special thanks goes to Peter for sharing some of his stories.

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.

This course is great for giving you the confidence to get involved in providing effective First Aid. No prior knowledge is assumed and the skills are taught without over-complicated explanations. As someone living and working in a remote place, I appreciated the amount of hands-on practice in an outdoor setting and the discussion of real first aid scenarios in the outdoors. Excellent facilities and a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Everyone should do it!

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! Peter brought the course to life (excuse the pun!) through a really practical common sense approach. Despite nearly twenty years of dealing with some pretty full on incidents, I learned lots!

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.

This is a programme that is very much based on practical application of first-aid skills in situations one is likely to encounter, rather than theoretical knowledge delivered without any context. As such it offers participants a level of competence and confidence that is both realistic and readily available.

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.

Testimonial from Martin Cudworth
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.

12/11/2015 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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 was by far the best first aid training I have been on in years. Having trainers who a currently working in the field enables them to use recent real life experiences to support and bring learning to life.

A good course made more enjoyable because of the simple structure - it could have been much harder to cope with, considering the subject matter.

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. Previous first aid courses have left me with a full head and fearful of remembering the right thing at the right time. 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.

A well-structured day course. I liked the way the trainer asked us to repeat and rehearse material whilst developing and extending this knowledge and skills base incrementally through the day. The trainer took time to understand individual's work situations and adapted the first aid advice accordingly.

This course provided by Pete Cunningham offers a refreshing approach to First Aid and how it can be applied on the hills. It is reassuring to understand the limitations of intervention as well as the great benefit of timely action following "ABC". Simplicity and common sense are themes that are interwoven within course delivery. I would commend this course led by Pete Cunningham to anyone.

I have contracted Ross at Lakes First Aid to provide biannual training for the members of Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue with the 16 hour outdoor first aid. 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!

I've been a 'first aider' for more than 30 years. The last three courses have been with Pete and I would thoroughly recommend his style of teaching. It's interesting, well informed, easy to understand, and a nice mix of theory and practice. But most of all it's pragmatic, he only tells you what you really need to know.

Testimonial from Nicholas Russell

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.

Testimonial from Stu Pickford

Simon's delivery perfectly matched the needs of the group. Each session engaged us either through his subject knowledge, practical application of first aid, or his facilitation of our own experiences. This is a First Class First Aid course!

Ross' training style is very friendly and encouraging as well as being informative and well-directed. I feel I learned a lot from this course but was also well instructed to understand and recall the basic principles of being a First Aider. The home-made biscuits and cake were also a plus!

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 thought this was a very well thought out course that mixed the elements of powerpoint instruction with indoor practice followed by outdoor role playing, interspersed with refreshments. There was no danger of falling asleep here. Furthermore, the outdoor sessions plus the anecdotes are an ideal prompt for remembering what was covered.

Excellent day, so often on the regular refresher you feel as if you are just 'jumping through hoops' to re validate ones certificate and it's all a bit boring.

A great course, that is uncomplicated and concentrates on what you need to know if you are in an emergency situation. Peter doesn't just read from a text book, he knows his subject and teaches using real life examples from himself and others. I would be surprised if even the most experienced 1st aiders did not learn some invaluable tips from him.

Their delivery was enthusiastic and they used real life examples which made me have a lot of confidence in them and what they were teaching us. I've done first aid courses before but I feel much more confident in myself now that I could successfully deliver the necessary techniques. Great course- thanks!

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 Howard, Podiatrist, Footworks Podiatry Clinic
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.

Peter was fantastic on the course, I have been on many courses and none have been so relevant and accommodating.

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.

I was comfortable asking questions and challenging information given. Great to meet like minded people on the course and to share stories, experiences and differences in approaches to various problems and situations.

The most enjoyable first aid course I'v attended so-far. A lot of trainers/courses can be quite dull and boring. Pete was very approachable with enough banter to keep everyone engaged whilst passing on the relevant and technical information.

Pete gave a completely different First Aid course to what I was used to. Everything made much more sense and I went away feeling far more confident and at ease than any of my other courses. Thanks.

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.

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.

Pete runs a great first aid course, and I say that as a jaded old outdoor educator who looks on the need to renew my qualification with grumpy resignation.
His enthusiasm, warmth, depth of knowledge and commitment to keeping content relevant and applied mark him out as exceptional.

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
11/10/2013 — 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

The course was very informative and the tutors were all very friendly, clearly very knowledgeable, and experienced. As a day-long EFAW course, we were obviously just scratching the surface, but the course was well-paced and imparted a lot of relevant knowledge. Many thanks for teaching those who attended some very valuable skills!

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.

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.
