Thanks very much - it was a useful couple of days in a friendly, supportive environment. The venue was fab too - and thanks for the cake.

Testimonial from Joanna Roberts
23/04/2024 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Great first aid course, not once did I feel nothing wasn't explained clearly. I think this was due to Petes personal stories and experiences of the outdoors or just general experience that he or someone he knows has had to apply first aid. From a personal experience, its always better to have a trainer who has genuinely experienced the implementation of first aid first or any course they are delivering first hand and the fact that Pete has had many of these situations, made me feel reassured that, yes it will be stressful. But, taking that breathe and understanding that you can apply first aid to the best of your abilities, even when in the outdoor surroundings, that it is always better to do something, than nothing.

The CPR practical was excellent and the extra computers attached as part of the Manikin was an excellent addition to ensuring you were delivering the correct pressure and breaths in the correct timing. Andrew and Ang made the course plus F fun, easy to understand and get involved in with plenty of opportunity to ask questions throughout.

You could ask any questions or ask advice without embarrassment.
Angie and Andrew made what initially was a bit of a daunting day into a great day. I've come away far more confident than when I started the day and with greater confidence to be a first aider if ever needed. Thank you both

Testimonial from Mark Bentley
26/03/2024 — 'Outdoor First Aid 1 day' course by Lakes First Aid

I really enjoyed the course. Luke was engaging and found fun ways to challenge our thinking. The atmosphere was relaxed and even though I found myself having quite a giggle at times, I could easily recall what I had learned after the course had finished. I work as a gardener and have a number of vulnerable clients in rural areas, which is what prompted me to take the course - knowing this, Luke made every attempt he could to tailor his teaching to a garden-related scenario for me and did so for other learners who were there for reasons outside of the ML or SPA course context. Would highly recommend Lakes First Aid!

I've always found first aid courses very stressful, and had been fearing the worst. But I really enjoyed this day.

As well as being challenged, I felt we were all well-supported, and very welcome to ask any questions at any point, however basic. It made it very engaging and enjoyable.

A well structured course with excellent time keeping, catered well to a wide variety of knowledge and confidence. Worked on encouragement, breaking practical elements into chunks, and practicing in an unthreatening environment where it was safe to make mistakes and so learn by them. Lots of new information well supported by sound evidence. A list of sources for those who wanted to explore these further might be useful for some people

Surprisingly for a first aid course, the day was fun! It was delivered in an engaging way, with plenty of opportunity to try out skills. The trainers were clearly very experienced and knowledgeable, and were able to relay their knowledge in a 'real life', no nonsense and practical way. I now feel that I would know what to do in an emergency situation and have the confidence to take action.

I really enjoyed this course, it was good how we were able to practice the techniques we were taught on a manikin which then gave us a score, it gave me a lot of confidence as i came into the course not sure what to expect and will little to no experience. Everyone who was on the course were at different levels of experience however the organizers made no one feel left out. I couldn't recommend this course enough, the amount you learn in a day is amazing. I will defiantly be returning in 3 years!

A thoroughly enjoyable informative day.
Each topic delivered well and geared to level of the group's understanding/experience.
Felt I gained a great deal of useful information to give me confidence to offer assistance should the need arise in a variety of situations. Thanks

Testimonial from Dawn Ashby
25/02/2024 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

My colleagues were jealous when they heard which First Aid training I was attending and after spending a couple of days with Angie and Andrew - now I know why! They made everyone feel very welcome and comfortable, particularly those of us who may have initially felt self-conscious who were either new to First Aid training or VERY rusty! Drinks and biscuits were in constant supply (always a winner) so there was no excuse to be dehydrated or peckish! Angie and Andrew were both brilliant at delivering the programme. There was a lot of content to cover but their hands-on experience, extensive knowledge and real life examples they shared to illustrate the 'theory' was fantastic. If the aim is to help new knowledge stick, their style of delivery is what you need! An effective mixture of theory, real-life examples, and where appropriate, we had a practice ourselves with a variety of training equipment.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone needing to gain a First Aid qualification or refresh their knowledge and skills.

Testimonial from Sally Harrison, Office Administrator, Witherslack Group
22/02/2024 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

I’ve done a few paediatric first courses and this was the best by far. Andrew and Angie had so many real life experiences to share, which made such a difference. They were able to demonstrate the seriousness of the content discussed, giving us the knowledge we needed but in such a humorous (and respectful) way…I don’t think think I’ve ever laughed so much on a first aid course!
And on a venue note, I don’t drink tea or coffee and I’ve never had a table on a course with such a lot of drinks for me to choose from! Thank you!

Testimonial from Emily Thornhill, Childminder
22/02/2024 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Thank you for such an engaging and informative training, filled with hands on aspects, real life examples, and fun activities. It had exceptionally accurate CPR training with the aid of the direct electrical feed from the CPR dolls to your mobile device, to examine your skills. The training was interactive throughout, with a hint of competitiveness thrown into aspects, which really helped gel the participants of the course together. It was really beneficial to look at some great first aid products available on the market and test them on ourselves. Pete was approachable and extremely knowledgable. The tea/coffee/biscuit facilities and location for the training was also great. I Would highly recommend the course and provider and I look forward to participating in future training with Pete.

In the 40+ years I have been a nurse, I consider this to be the best first aid course I have attended. The content, delivery, equipment & facilities were excellent. I enjoyed the relaxed & friendly approach of the trainers. Their humour and anecdotes were entertaining / interesting often enforcing reality. Attendees were made to feel at ease, no pressure was put on them and questions/discussions were welcomed. What I especially appreciated was the digital monitoring of the effectiveness of our CPR and also the explanations given as to what happens in the body / why we do things, rather than just being told to do it. Of course, the limitless cups of tea/coffee & chocolate biscuits was an added bonus.

21/10/2023 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

Andrew and Angie were absolutely fantastic, they were both so friendly and obviously passionate about helping the average person feel confident in delivering first aid should they find themselves in that position. They taught by deivering the information required and putting this into context and even had a story about how they themselves had delt with some unbeleievable situations, as they had been or still are working as paramedics. The testimonials added such a depth and authenticity to the course that it made the two days we were there not just informative but enlightening, you were being taught by the best of the best. I have nothing but praise for the programe, i learnt so much, it was well delivered, well planned, well organised and accessible for all learners.

I’ve lost count of how many first-aid courses I’ve done in the past.

Typically they are geared around helping you pass a test at the end in order to have the qualification required. Pete had a confidently and transparently different approach to equipping us as first-aiders. The emphasis on principles, and fundamentals, with a realistic dose of common sense and sound rationale for stepping in and taking the initiative was empowering and refreshing. Bearing in mind that the world is complex and unpredictable and therefore traumatic incidences tend not to happen in ways that fit a standard cookie-cutter response I feel much more certain I’d be a useful person to have around if things got serious and lives were at stake.

Testimonial from Rachel Eastwood

An excellent course delivered using a well balanced approach of information sharing, partner conversation and hands on practice and problem solving scenarios. Aspects of First Aid were delivered in an appropriate sequence with repetition and reinforcement of key concepts throughout the weekend. And everything was presented with passion and light-hearted good humour by the unphaseable Ross! First Aid now feels simpler and achievable. Thank you.

Testimonial from Jane Morris
06/10/2023 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

All good. Best First aid training I've done. There is still a feeling of 'too much to take in' and the decision making gets blurred, so if you had the means to make a laminated card that could slip into a rucksack so you had a reminder of 'if this, then X, ... If that, then this...' then that would be really helpful.

I thought the training was well planned and delivered. The screen was hardly used. The session was practical, promoted discussion and used phrases and tips that were easy to remember. Lots of it was done as if it was a real life scenario which enabled you to feel like you had a practise run. Stephen took time to explain things well and get to know us which ensured we asked for help or questioned things. It was a brilliant session.

The online learning was very easy to use and very informative with videos to watch throughout which really embedded the information. The practical course was led by expert staff who explained and showed best first aid practice and answered queries relating to my work environment which has built my confidence in carrying out first aid effectively.

I really enjoyed the course delivered by Ross Wallace, who concentrated on the important information and did not overload us with unnecessary facts. I told him that I was autistic at the beginning of the course, and his easy manner and good humour really put me at ease. At the end of the course he asked me how I had found it and I really appreciated this gesture because I felt that he hand been mindful of what I might find particularly challenging as the course progressed. I really can’t fault the quality of his teaching and personal engagement with everyone that was present

Excellent course, great instructor who had loads of experience and a vast knowledge. Also had a very friendly personality which put me at ease and made it comfortable to ask any questions and interact with him and others. The equipment was excellent too, and helped to give me confidence that in a real situation I would be able to do what was necessary as I had had practice on realistic equipment. The course didn't feel like 'a lesson', but was actually enjoyable and interesting. In addition I would like to thank Andy for all his work as a paramedic. To have done this job, seeing the things he has seen and having dealt with the situations he has is truly incredible. And now he is delivering these courses to enable others to help people and save lives as he has. It's very much appreciated, thank you!

Thank you, you've provided me with another engaging and informative training session. I always feel reassured that the information that you are teaching is as up to date and relevant as it can be due to you both being paramedics, plus the real life experience that you feed into the course makes it really interesting.

(Also I can vouch for your advice on how to remove blood stains from school shirts, it worked a treat, that advice was worth the course fee in itself!!)

David was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. He clearly has lots of experience in this field and enjoys what he does. He used his own experiences as scenarios which I found helped understand why we use the processes he taught us. I feel that the skills learnt in this course are invaluable and everybody should attend a first aid course, not just for at work but for at home too.

Simon was excellent at adapting the course to suit our interests while still enabling us to pass our Emergency First Aid at Work certificate.

It was a shame the technology wasn't working correctly, as it would have been great to get the learners all on the same page and able to see their compression rates etc. Having said that, the session was interactive for the learners, which suited the class.

Pete was extremely knowledgeable and could put a scenario to everything, making it real life for the learners. It was also nice that he took into account the sector the learners were working in and could resonate with them to an extent.

I feel the learners got a lot out of it, even those who I thought wouldn't engage as well, engaged really well, and answered questions when asked.

I have trained with Active Aid for my last four first aid courses.

Furthermore, despite not having used the skills and knowledge since the last course, i had not lost much of the knowledge and skills after three years - a sign of really great training.

This course has given me the confidence to perform better if I am ever faced with an emergency situation again, which is all I wished for.

There seems to be increasing evidence supporting the prioritisation of CPS over 'Breathing' - Greater clarity and and an officially promoted position on this would be reassuring. i.e. If I did prioritise pumping blood to the brain over 'brething' might I be deemed 'guilty' of not 'breathing' - despite evidence?

I dont have any issue with how the cource went, some off the things I learned in this couce I dont rememebr doing a few years ago, which would be no supprise with traning refreshers and how procedures change. It just made my job much easier when an emergency situation were to happened, including a few changes I need to make in my normal daily routine so I can pass onto the others staff.
As Defibs access and accessibility to the builing will need to be changed for quicker routes, including a few first aid practicals with staff just to help make them aware off what to do as ive noticed abit off confusion with the safety arrangements. So these refreshers help alot thank you.

i did about 5 first aid courses in the past and after every single one i hoped never to be in the situation where i have to give any help. After this course yesterday i feel very confident and would be ready to give CPR or help in any other emergency. The wo trainers did an awesome job and answered all the questions.

08/02/2023 — ' First Aid at Work' course by Lakes First Aid

Ross was very good at getting everyone in the group involved in thinking about the reasons why things are done and in what order. There were lots of hands on scenarios and time taken to reflect on performance and ask questions. I felt I could ask any question without being worried I was asking a silly question. There were no details that weren’t explored; what to expect when you dial 999, will the call handler know where you are, what details to give, what to do if someone recovers from CPR, how protocols vary for different age groups etc

27/01/2023 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

The outdoor first aid has been an invaluable experience. Having attended previous first aid courses that were all classroom based, this course approached applying skills in a new environment and more flexible manner that has helped me to feel more confident if an event was to occur. The resources used were really helpful and gave the opportunity to put into practice what we had learned. The trainers were excellent. They are clearly very knowledgeable and their enthusiasm was infectious. Thank you for an excellent course.

Testimonial from Stewart Cousins
25/01/2023 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

Ross was very dynamic, engaged and engaging, and he was clearly drawing upon a lot of experience of first aid being given in remote UK outdoor areas. Probably the most enjoyable first aid course I have done in 25 years.

Making use of De-fibrillators and choking harnesses was really useful!

25/01/2023 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

Luke is an excellent trainer. In particular his focus on ensuring we could apply skills practically. And his ability to simplify excess information into something digestible and simple I feel I could actually remember and use confidently under real circumstances. Good sense of humour, kept things interesting, fun and light throughout. Excellent.

Testimonial from Bernard Gregory Gilmartin
25/01/2023 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I have now done at least five of Pete's courses. He keeps updating the content to provide relevant and engaging learning for First Aiders. The courses really focus on what you need to know to preserve, promote and prevent. Extra faff is removed. The content is always evolving and key learning points are shared by a variety of presentations and styles. The practical sessions are particularly valuable. Highly recommended.

16/01/2023 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

Previous first aid courses I have attended with other providers have been like pulling teeth. However, the course run by Ross and Luke (Lakes First Aid) was really good fun whilst being informative and increasing my confidence. I thought the balance between practical and classroom sessions was spot on. Ross and Luke’s combination of knowledge, enthusiasm and humour are what made the course so enjoyable.

This was a very enjoyable and informative day. Pete was an excellent trainer, covered all the material in depth and kept our attention throughout the day.

13/01/2023 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

Having participated in three of their Outdoor First Aid courses, Lakes First Aid are quite simply the best provider of first aid training I've encountered to date. It's the way in which the training is designed and integrated with practical, scenario-based exercises that's a stand out element that builds your confidence during the course. The use of cutting edge kit to practise, illustrate and develop key skills is also exemplary in highlighted the company's constant efforts to develop and improve their courses. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

I really like how the course can be done online before having a day course, it splits it up well. I have done a few first aid courses but learnt some things today that I’ve never been shown or taught before. Luke made the day fun, he explained things well, he gave us time, I really liked how much group work was involved and how hands on we were other than just sitting and listening. The venue was great as it provided lots of space and was warm enabling us to work well and concentrate, I would recommend this course to anyone. Thank you to Luke!

After more than 40 years of regular first aid course updates this must count as one of the best courses that I have taken part in. Luke was thorough and efficient in his course delivery and yet at the same time managed to maintain a relaxed and informal approach that enabled questions and discussion and enhanced learning. Thank you very much

Testimonial from Richard Simpson

Testimonial from Chris Higgins
13/12/2022 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

An excellent course that happens to give a certificate that other people will use to tick a box. Real world advice from practical application to back up the theory and a non judgemental opportunity to put the learning into simulated situation - role play for those that don't like role play but are curious how they would react in an incident.

The resources were extensive and allowed each participant time to operate each type of manakin, AED, bandages etc first hand to conduct active and practical learning. It was clear to see that Peter had a natural passion to deliver a 1st class first aid course.
Peter spoke a lot about different scenarios and asked for audience feedback and participation. Not one situation will be the same as the next and it was paramount that Peter showed us how to asses and think “outside the box”.
I have been on many First Aid courses throughout my career and consider this the best yet.

Thank you again Peter.

Testimonial from Ian Oldham
02/12/2022 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

I was anxious before starting the course because I had very little knowledge of or confidence in performing First Aid. However, I found the course to be very supportive and non-judgemental of complete novices like me. Ross was very enthusiastic and made the learning fun and easy to follow. I also found the outdoor exercises incredibly useful as they simulated what I might encounter at work and the importance of the surrounding environment. I now feel confident and knowledgeable enough to respond to a range of casualties which I feel is invaluable not just in my work outdoors but also in everyday life.

02/12/2022 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

I have done a lot of first aid courses over my career and this course was by far the best one that I have been on. The outdoor scenarios and role playing really makes this course stand out from classroom courses. In my opinion an outdoor course should be the new standard. I say this because the office environment is variable and people may need first aid in car parks, stair wells, small spaces, etc…

Ross is obviously very knowledgeable and passionate course tutor, but I found that his involvement as a first responder and work with mountain rescue provided additional level of respect and credibility.

Probably the best first aid course I have been on - from the facilities, the equipment, refreshments, info prior to the course, course content and the trainers were brilliant. Thank you Angie and Andrew for your kindness and encouragement to my colleague who was very nervous. You had a perfect balance of humour and obvious expertise and no one felt like they couldn’t question anything they were unsure of. Your kindness and the way you dealt with the lady who sadly became unwell was amazing. It’s so benefits to do training with people who are still so hands on. Thank you!!!

This was an extremely engaging course and the tutors were very keen to ensure that all the students were comfortable with and understood the content of the course material. Great venue and everything very well organised. It was really important to me to be able to physically try out procedures on the 'toys' - the best way of learning and gaining confidence. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this training centre, the tutors really know their subject and I really enjoyed it.

Ross was very very good at keeping us engaged! I struggle to keep engaged in something for a long period of time, but his coaching was delivered in such a way that I felt fully enthusiastic over the entire 2 days! Great coach, great first aider! His knowledge was second to none, he answered every question we had and delivered answers in such a way for everyone to clearly understand!

A massive thank you. My previous course provider 4 years ago was OK but it was really stuffy in comparison, and I learnt a great deal more on this course not least because it was so engaging. The high-tech CPR dummies which included real time feedback have given me a great degree of confidence I could now deliver CPR to the prescribed standards.

Testimonial from Gill Smith, Nursery Class teacher, Beaconside Primary School
02/11/2022 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

Ross is clearly a very experienced First Aid Practitioner drawing on a wealth of practical knowledge from a diverse range of previous experiences in the Outdoor sector. His background as an Outdoor Instructor in a range of water and land based activities also adds to the relevance and practical nature of his delivery. It was evident from the presentations that Ross has kept abreast with current research, trends and thinking and has adapted information accordingly. The props that he has developed are well designed to facilitate understanding and enhance learning. The balance of 'teacher' led input and 'peer' led discovery was excellent, keeping us awake and engaged at all times. I would highly recommend this course to anyone in the outdoor industry whether it be Center Instructors, School teachers or freelance Instructors like myself.

Testimonial from Amy Deighton, Office Administrator , BDS Fuels
21/10/2022 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I have attended many first aid course by different providers. I also happen to come from a health care back ground and have worked in trauma teams and on intensive care units. I have often found on first aid courses that participants are taught information and skills that go beyond first aid, and while may provide them with information about a casualty it is often information they can do nothing with. Pete teaches in a refreshing and more appropriate way. He focuses on real first aid, with the importance of protecting, preservation and prevention being pivotal. He provides a straightforward and clear approach that is true first aid, and has avoided the pitfall a lot of first aiders fall into, which is showing off more advanced skills that go beyond immediate first aid. This course will leave you with a solid realistic base of first aid skills that can actually be applied in the real world as well as a clear understanding of when you need more than first aid.

Testimonial from Emma Hamilton

20/10/2022 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I feel Pete went above and beyond any first aid course I had attended in the past. Pete didnt just cover the essentials, he explained why and added real life experience. It is this experience that is valuable, whilst I have had some use of first aid it is not on the scale that Pete has. The combination of well paced teaching style, a mixture of practical and theory, plus real life experience made for a very good course.

Big thanks to Luke for putting up with me!

I was worried after taking a break from the outdoor industry that I wouldn’t remember anything and find the course overwhelming.
Each module was thoroughly covered with a mixture of indoor/ outdoor (great for an ADHD brain) and I was able to engage and take in a lot of information.
I was able to ask extra questions when I needed clarification, and felt in a very safe environment.

I would 100% recommend Lakes First Aid and look forward to the next one.

16/09/2022 — 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course by Lakes First Aid

As someone who isn't keen on blood, First Aid courses are something I usually hate doing. As a youth leader I have to do a course every 3 years. When I went on an Active Aid First Aid Course I knew I wouldn't be worrying about them anymore.
Active Aid presents the course in a way that is simple and easy to understand and remember and there are no horror stories shared.
The course teacher was great at answering all our questions and encouraging our answers as well as correcting us if we needed it in a positive way.
I am hoping there will be an active aid course available in 3 years when I need to update my first aid.
Thank you so much!

12/07/2022 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

I understand that the time constraints that a 2 day course has, means that a more practical course is more difficult. A previous First Aid course did provide more practical elements however it was longer. I did much prefer the experiences you were able to draw on, it made it more personable.

Testimonial from Callum Paley, Trainee teacher
06/07/2022 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Cambridgeshire County Council

I’d done three different courses with other companies before taking part in Active Aid’s course. Hands down it was the most engaging course I’ve done. The instructors explained every step clearly, and the practical approach gave me confidence that I won’t quickly forget what I’ve learned. Rather than bombarding me with confusing acronyms to memorise steps, the course provided simple and effective ways to remember the skills, and followed the theory with various simulations to test what we’d learned. I can easily say that my knowledge and skills about how to help in emergency situations are better than they’ve ever been.

Having held the formal FAW certification as a First Aider on major construction sites for over 35 years, & participated in many renewal/full multi day courses over that time, I found the format of this course extremely interesting and worthwhile, and more importantly presented in a practical manner reflecting real conditions, rather than in a 'lecture/carpeted floored' setting with rigorous observance of the 'Textbook' method of casualty treatment.

Testimonial from Phil Scotchbrook
08/06/2022 — 'Outdoor First Aid 1 day' course by Simon Clooney

Trainer was very good at explaining that First Aid is not an absolute skill with precision application of treatments/casualty management & any 'textbook' dressings/treatments, and practical measures were demonstrated to allow me to achieve the desired outcome and understanding of objectives.
Irrespective of content, all questions were answered in a positive manner with clear explanations.

Testimonial from Angie Scotchbrook
07/06/2022 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

I really enjoyed the course. Luke was a fantastic trainer. The comprehensive and wide-ranging material was delivered in a highly effective manner involving some short theoretical presentations, but more often engaging interactive Q&A sessions and real-life scenarios, most of which took place outdoors. I would recommend this course very highly to potential applicants, and cannot praise it highly enough. Having attended the course I would feel confident in delivering first aid to casualties in the outdoors.

A good thorough grounding in first aid delivered by interesting and obviously experienced trainers. Probably due to their past employment the trainers are well aware that most emergencies do not occur in textbook situations and can often require problem solving and improvisation. The possibility that you may need to think outside of the box and how you might do that is corporated into each of the modules. I give 5 Stars for that alone.

24/04/2022 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

Ross's enthusiasm and charisma made this course very engaging and interesting. The way in which he invited questions from the group and using a 'what if' system for the participants allowed everyone to get from the course what they needed and apply it to their own industries/roles. There was a huge amount of content covered, and it was great to apply what was learned in outdoor scenarios working in pairs of a group of 3.
It would be great if there was more opportunity to do some more scenarios, maybe in larger groups and more simulation of a day out walking (carrying kit to make use of, personal first aid kits etc). Another half day or full day for this extra would have been valuable in my opinion, and something worth paying for (even if it still provided the same level of qualification.
The booking process for the course was simple and easy. The correspondence before and after was timely and useful. It was also nice to have tea/coffee and biscuits provided! Thanks a lot! Ben

Personally I prefer the indoor sessions. I find that the outdoor scenarios are useful but they are so hard to make real that I find them more of a game to figure out what i should be spotting and so miss things easily. I do not dislike these but i get more from the discussions. I wonder if you should do a share your first aid incidents type of session and what did you learn or what did you not do, what surprised you etc. I know that you pick up on some people's when they share these but inviting all the participants to share their experiences would be both interesting to learn from and listen to.

Pete Cunningham delivers the course with very high quality content, detail and engaging presentation style. There was a really good mix of tutor explanation, video, powerpoint and real life footage to support the learning. The reduced amount of practical scenarios (due to covid limitations) allowed for a greater amount of time to be dedicated to the depth of information into different subject areas. Each section was very well though out and expertly delivered by Pete. Having the inclusion of the many different sources of video learning (from a wide variety of organisations) and also footage and images of real life scenarios is so valuable in preparing the first aider for possible encounters. The knowledge and experience of Pete shone throughout the course.

Thanks for a great course!

Over the years, I have completed a number of first aid courses and after becoming aware of this course, I genuinely feel this is the best course in terms of style/delivery and content for those that work largely in the outdoors (Geography/PE/DofE staff). The scenario style of learning allows participants to gain confidence and the vital 'treat what you find' skills. Stephen has a wealth of experience and uses this to bring the topics 'to life', using demonstrations, stories and high quality equipment/training aids.

22/02/2022 — 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

It was a very useful course especially after three years since the last course I was on. During the years I haven’t had to deal with many large accidents at work, usually just cuts and bumps from the open farm aspect of the business. Many of the more serious accidents usually happen to myself or my boss due to the nature of the work we are involved in. Even though this is, it was good to refresh on more critical first aid such as CPR as my last experience of this was when my dad sadly had a heart attack on a family ski holiday in early 2020 and didn’t make it. It is reassuring to know that if the time ever came that I would need to use this skill I would be able to perform it correctly and the computer in the CPR dummy really came in useful to show this. I will hopefully be back in three years for another refresher!

Andrew is an excellent trainer and presents the course so that everyone feels at ease and relaxed and able to ask questions without feeling embarrassed . We were supplied with our own individual CPR model, defibrillator and pocket mask and Andrew attended to everyone individually to check that we were all competent and comfortable using them. There is no role play-that is a major positive! Andrew is very eager to make sure sure that all the delegates understand everything and explains everything very well. He goes over and beyond to ensure we have all understood what’s required from the course plus more. Andrew spent additional time with us answering all our questions. Using the Heimleich manoeuvre on someone wearing the special vest was also good.

Outdoor first aid doesn't come much better than this. Ross has expert knowledge based on real life experience as a First Reponder, and as amember of Mountian Rescue. He turns what could be two days of very dry content into an engaging and often entertaining study using phrases and methods which help make it stick. Add in proper outdoor scenarious rolling about in wet, cold ground and you very quickly appreciate how a csualty can go downhill quickly - perhaps even literally on a slope!

Andrew and Angie's stories of their experiences made it very interesting and made learning easier to remember. Both very friendly and happy to answer questions even if it meant going off planned topic. Best course I've done (done 8 over the years!) despite covid restrictions. Very relaxed and enjoyable but very informative.
Also, little touches such as sweets in everyone's individual pack and even a pen provided were very thoughtful.

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

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

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

Testimonial from Solange Ponce, Lead Adviser ( Natural England)
26/10/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

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

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

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

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.

Luke was a great trainer, he delivered the course in a way that was easy to follow but also had ways for remembering the information. I would recommend this course to first time First Aiders as well as people who are updating their skills.

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 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 have done many first aid courses throughout my teaching career and this is definately the best course I have ever done. I came away from the course thinking that I may be able to apply my skills if needed in any situation. Previous courses have left me wondering if I would remember to do the 'right thing' if I was ever in a position to use my skills. I definately feel so much more confident and that is down to your excellent approach and delivery. Thank you very much.

Excellent course. The instructor was superb. 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.

Pete was a friendly, thoughtful and competent trainer, often able to relate the information presented to his own real life experiences.

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!

The practical element of the course covered all the key areas, was well resourced and even used new digital tools that made learning interesting and more enjoyable.

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.

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.

Petes course and knowledge of the different areas is amazing. He did everything Covid compliant and it was still so much fun and so informative. I loved the use of "hands on" equipment along side the powerpoint with the intermittent moments of practicing skills throughout, "The cube is bleeding again!"

Thanks Pete for creating a great first aid course, with a good mix of practical and theory, improvising to keep things interesting and still very safe during Covid
Your friendly approach to the subject created a learning environment where we felt interested, at ease and I think everyone contributed to the course and felt comfortable , even during the CPR bits, I didn't feel under pressure or put on the spot, but able to practice in my own time and now feel much more confident

Our learning had to operate within the restrictions of Covid. Peter was very conscious of our safety and social distancing and still successfully delivered a practical course.

Testimonial from Barbara Clifford
09/08/2020 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

A superb and informative course about outdoor first aid. The practical scenarios help embed the theory and the actions to be practised and built upon each time.
Ross is really good at explaining how first aid can be applied in the outdoors and tailored the information provided to the activities undertaken by the members of the group.
The course is hard work but relaxed and at no point do you feel silly if you say something that isn't correct. During the scenarios the first aider and the casualty can work together as the main goal is to improve everyone's first aid knowledge. I am looking forward to renewing in three years!

Testimonial from Jennifer Palmer

This was an excellent course that I have already recommended to others. It represents extremely good value for money. It provided training not only beyond what I'd expected but also more that I had hoped for. It is very hands-on and the outdoor element scenarios of the training really help to boost confidence as well as 'keeping it real'. I'd readily endorse this course to others. Such important life skills for everyone. Massive thanks to Ross and his organising team.

Really enjoyed the two days, slept really well having had fun as well as learning. Ross worked hard as the trainer and kept my interested from 9 am until 5.30pm,. Taking some of the practice outside was different from other courses I have done and added a touch of reality to role play, it even rained on us briefly. I came home with lots of helpful ideas such as phone apps and improving my own first aid kit. Thankyou Ross and team for providing great training under challenging Covid 19 rules for safety.

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!

Anyone who works in remote locations should consider whether they could manage an emergency and this course gives you the knowledge and confidence to be able to help. The attention to learning and reflection make this a very good course.

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
03/02/2020 — ' First Aid at Work' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

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.

Trish was highly knowledgeable and made me feel at ease and comfortable throughout the course. The day was timed well giving a break at a good time, and breaking up sitting and reading/ listening with getting up and 'doing' and putting knowledge into practice. Fantastic course, I feel a lot more confident I would know what to do if an incident occurred.

A thoroughly enjoyable 2 day experience led by 2 highly qualified professionals with a wealth of knowledge which they are happy to share and pass on.
I've learnt valuable lessons which I hope I will never have to put into practice, but feel able and confident to should the need ever arise.
It was so nice to be able to use modern training equipment and for there to be enough for everyone to gain plenty of hands on practical experience to feel sufficiently trained in all of the techniques.
Thank you again for a great experience I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company.

Testimonial from Shane Wilson, PE Teacher
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.

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.

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.

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.)

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.

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.

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,

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.

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 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.

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.

27/09/2018 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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!!

This first aid course was the most interesting and varied course I have been on. It covered a vast range of material in a very simple and easy to follow. I feel much more confident to help people now as the advice given was presented in a no nonsense way with explanations for the reasons why.

27/09/2018 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Having done these courses for over 20 years this is one of the best I have attended. Pete's knowledge and understanding of the subject was faultless and most importantly hes' an approachable guy with a real passion for the subject.

Testimonial from Dan McKinlay

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 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.

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 would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone working with groups in the outdoor environment. It is presented in simple straightforward language by a very knowledgeable trainer who is obviously passionate about the subject areas. Pete's delivery is supportive of individuals prior knowledge, and encouraging of those who may be taking their first course. His sense of humour and stories also lighten what may seem to be otherwise quite dry subjects. It was a pleasure to attend the course and will be booking again next time. Thanks Pete.

Djak Forrest, Toilet Attendant, Gretna Attraction

This course built up my confidence as a person and a First Aider. It helped greatly that we roleplayed situations and problem solved in teams, how to best help a patient in need of attention.
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.

I definitely want to come back for a refresher course. I'm even inclined to try out a Bushtracker course!!!!

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.
