This was the best BLS training session I have every had in my nurse training. The trainers both had an excellent approach, their knowledge and experience shined through and this made the training have a nice calm approach. They made us all feel at ease and were very supportive and encouraging. They sparked conversation in a learning way and I found the session to be quite inspiring. Would highly recommend.

Pete is an excellent communicator of his subject and always makes it relevant to the business we are in. The course is always insightful and despite the regularity with which we do the course, always has something new to teach.

06/02/2017 — 'Basic Life Support' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

The whole atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Using our own surgeries was really helpful. The presenters put everyone at their ease, and we didn't feel 'on show' when we were doing the practical side. Lots of useful tips on how to deal with situations here, where we need to act as a team, as well as general day to day possibilities.

Testimonial from Rona Murdoch, Practice Manager, A J Morgan & Associates
28/06/2016 — 'Basic Life Support' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

ALL GOOD
Andrew was an excellent trainer.
He had excellent practical and theoretical skills.
He had a good sense of humour and kept us all interested, unlike many other annual updates I have attended in the past 30yrs.
Our surgery was only small so we were a bit cramped, however we all managed our practical sessions.
I am looking forward to attending next year in your own training centre.

Testimonial from Carol Robinson
02/03/2015 — 'Basic Life Support' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

This was a group event and I was not able to answer some of the points above relating to website, pre-course info and booking process. I marked these as neutral. This may distort the score because I have marked everything else "smiley face" because I though the course was excellent. Perhaps an NOT APPROPRIATE button may help to get a better score if that is the aim.
