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.

I can thoroughly recommend Luke Armatage and the Active Aid First Aid at Work course.
Luke is extremely knowledgeable.
Luke moulded the course to the group he had in front of him making it relevant to the type of work we do which made it very easy to take in.
He taught us in a very informal "easy to learn" way and the two days just flew by.

The Blended learning First Aid at Work course is a good way to get qualified. There is a good mix of practical and face to face learning with the online element allowing you to go over the material again at your own pace.

Testimonial from Michael Evans
26/04/2019 — ' First Aid at Work' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

Testimonial from Paul Chapman
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,

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!!!!

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.
