I feel much more confident to have a go if I find myself in need of applying first aid. It is the sort of knowledge I hope I will never have to use but you never know.

28/10/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

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!

Testimonial from Mary Elizabeth Berry, Lead Adviser, Natural England
25/10/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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.

Testimonial from Tim Morris, Facilitator and Coach
25/10/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

Ross Wallace is an excellent instructor who brought his passion for first aid to the course and made it really enjoyable as well as informative. It was a well structured course mixing listening sessions with practical scenarios to test our knowledge and first aid problem solving. After completing the 2 days I feel much more prepared to go out on site visits in remote rural areas.

Testimonial from Benita Rose Stacey, Natural England
21/10/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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.

Testimonial from Kathryn Pigdon
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.

19/07/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

This was my first ever first aid course and was expecting some of it to be difficult to learn and potentially scary to deliver in a real life situation. Ross made it all easy to understand and I now see that most first aid is simple and practical and I wouldn’t be afraid of helping anyone in need of assistance. He also made the course fun and enjoyable

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. Thank you for taking it so seriously and yet making it feel not oppressive - it's a hard balancing act to pull off!

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.

Testimonial from Anthony Crook
29/04/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Overall an enjoyable and informative course, with a good mix of learning methods. Loved the CPR manikins and I would have liked to spend more time on the baby as I had trouble getting things to work. I found it useful doing more on children and babies than I have on past courses.

Testimonial from Amanda Halliwell
29/04/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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.

Testimonial from Roger Chaldecott

The course was very well managed given the current COVID restrictions. Even though practical outdoors group scenarios were unable to take place, it was still engaging as discussions went into greater depth and “what ifs” were considered around various topics. The opportunity to address any other content useful to our profession was given and taken up. Thoroughly enjoyable, thank you.

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.

Testimonial from James Cowan
25/03/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Luke is highly experienced in First Aid and also very practised at teaching it really well - the course was relevant and practical throughout, never condescending, and with no unnecessary anecdotes. Excellent value for money.

Testimonial from Paul Cheshire
11/03/2021 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I'd highly recommend. This was my first time doing a course with Pete. The course content was fantastic, the days were very enjoyable and they covered a wide range of learning. 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.

Testimonial from Andy Morris
21/12/2020 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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!

I wouold strongly recommend the experience I have had to anyone working in the outdoors. For those new to first aid it will build a great dealm of confidence. For those renewing a first aid qualification, the style, progression and detail enables review and revision of knowledge and practice very effectively.

I really enjoyed this course. The blended learning meant that I began the two practical days feeling like my knowledge was already refreshed. The two days then allowed us to discuss things further and try the skills and techniques that we were learning about. Pete is a great trainer who explains things clearly, with an appropriate sense of humour and at a good pace. I would very much recommend this first aid course.

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

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!

This was an excellent course that I have already recommended to others. It represents extremely good value for money.

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.

Ross and Luke delivered this course in a relaxed but very informative style. I particularly liked the way in which they introduced the first element of the DRSABCDE acronym and worked through, one element at a time with scenarios, until we were confident to approach a casualty and work our way through from D to E. This was a really good course and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

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!

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.

Kudos to Simon and Mark for a well organized and delivered course

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.

This course is a fantastic introduction to practical first aid and CPR. It takes into account factors that are not covered in typical courses, such as location, weather, terrain, and remote areas. By getting outside and going through scenarios, I was really able to build confidence in my skills.

Overall one of the best FA courses I have done. A nice informal delivery style with plenty of time to discuss ideas and thoughts. Also very good value for money compared to many FA courses. And a pub lunch included, what's not to like!

Trish and Deb created opportunities for us as students to learn from each other. There was no unsatisfactory rushing through the syllabus to get it "covered".

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.

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.

31/10/2019 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

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

I have been doing first aid training for over 23 years annually and also have completed three previous REC courses, this was by far the most impressive and progressive approach I’ve experienced. First aid can be a lot of this and that... however this was simple, straight and manageable.

28/05/2019 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

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

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

A fantastic course, definitely the best training course I’ve ever attendee. Very knowledgable and likeable instructor. Applied all scenarios to real life situations and made everything as easy as possible to understand and grasp. Confident I would be some help should my first aid skills ever be required.

25/04/2019 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Pete is a very knowledgeable trainer who recognises that he doesn't have to tell me everything he knows. He just has to distill it all down and tell me the most important bits in a way that is easy for me to understand.
I like the balance between theory and practise.

The last course I went on the trainer never stopped ranting on about accidents he had experienced. I was very pleased that at the start this Ross said 'no stories' Even if that was sometimes hard to keep to for me as I do rather rabbit on!!

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 Alistair Ramsay
28/02/2019 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

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.

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.

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.

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.

interesting, engaging, practical and fun. Pete has clearly spent time tweaking this 2 day programme into something that is really useful and informative. He has a relaxed and professional delivery style and he provides plenty of stories and examples to bring first aid situations to life. I really enjoyed the 2 days.

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.

Active Aid courses are always the best, most pragmatic and easy to remember first aid courses, and I've been on a First Aid course every three years for the last 30.

I learned so much. I had been avoiding going on a first aid course but Pete made everything very straightforward and easy to understand and apply. The emphasis on doing first aid in the outdoors was incredibly helpful. I recommend this course without reservation.

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

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

18/07/2018 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

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

Thank you Pete

Testimonial from Al Westle
14/06/2018 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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 found this course very enjoyable and gained a great deal from it. Colleagues tell me that other courses they have been on have been very heavy on content and much of the time is spent sat listening. I believe the approach Ross uses is much more conducive for learning and makes you think on your feet, like the situation we are likely to encounter outdoors!

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.

Testimonial from Simon Burgess
03/05/2018 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Active Aid's no nonsense approach is excellent. By stripping away most of the frills which accompany many first aid courses Pete Cunningham keeps the focus on the essentials of casualty care. The approach is practical and realistic for those working in the outdoors and Pete is a very skilled trainer.

Testimonial from Peter Cheung
02/05/2018 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Although there was a lot of items covered during the 2 days, the 'keep it simple approach' and the practical activities helped to ensure that the key information was maintained. The trainer was exceptional creating a great learning environment and encouraging everybody to participate. I now have the confidence to try to help someone in trouble..

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.

Testimonial from Alexander Ladds, Chaplain, Giggleswick School
28/03/2018 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Roll on 3 years time!

I 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.

Simon was extremely knowledgeable and put everything across very clearly and in a very accessible way. The outdoor practical sessions were invaluable as we were able to really practice our newly learned skills but also problem solve, work together and discuss the scenarios. Simon also took note of the particular situations we might come across in an outdoors or underground situation and included these. I now feel much more confident in dealing with something if I need to. An excellent course! Would recommend for everyone to do.

This was an excellent course. I learned a huge amount and felt the multiple learning approaches--spoken, active, video, problem-solving--brought home the information in multiple ways. Also the excellent tea and coffee, home-made cake and cookies, and delicious pub food all gave us the feeling we were valued and being looked after very well.

No matter what your background (and mine is from many years in mountain rescue) you'll benefit from Pete's common sense approach to what the lone first aider could and should be doing in the outdoor environment to stabilise a casualty and provide a prompt and appropriate hand over to medical care.

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.

16/06/2017 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Pete did an amazing job at covering a wide range of topics in great detail. The course is run in an engaging manner not death by power-point like some courses with other providers. Cant recommend enough.

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.

Testimonial from Nathan Moorby, Head of Geography, Central Lancaster High School

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

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

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

Pete was an excellent trainer and gave many real world examples to illustrate various aspects of the course. The use of video clips was also very engaging and helped demonstrate how Pete's training fits in with other initiatives.

15/03/2017 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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.

Testimonial from Chloe Bren
09/03/2017 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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!

Pete is a great trainer and certainly encourages you to be proactive through increasing your confidence and knowledge in a practical way. I love the fact that he approaches it from a perspective of reality and common sense as to what is possible and what is realistic for most people. Probably the best First Aid course I have ever attended - thoroughly enjoyable and always up to date with actual experience.

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!

Testimonial from Matthew Burke, Director, Kendal College
25/01/2017 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

I have lost count of the number of courses I've done with Pete. Each one has always been amended to provide us with the latest views and up to date practices, rather than regurgitating the same old information. Pete clearly has a passion for his subject and can't recommend him highly enough to anyone considering undertaking a first aid course.

Testimonial from Bernard Gregory Gilmartin
15/12/2016 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

My primary reason for attending was to satisfy my MR team requirements to carry an outdoor/expedition first aid certificate so as to be available on the call out list, but I would recommend anyone should attend this course, from all walks of life. It's both enjoyable and informative, but most importantly, the more people know this stuff, the more likely you are to potentially make a difference one day.

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

Testimonial from Matt Beresford, Deputy Head

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

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

I believe the First Aid course was highly useful, and would recommend to others if they wanted to gain their qualification.

Will definitely be using this company in three years time when I look to again renew my course. Many Thanks for passing on your knowledge,I now feel more comfortable to deal with a casualty.

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.

A really good, simple first aid course, it was clear and to the point demonstrating that as first aiders we are not paramedics and we are there to stop the situation getting worse.

Testimonial from Steven Bradley, Head of Outdoor Learning, Bolton school
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!

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 really was the best first aid course I have attended.

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

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

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.

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!

It gave me the confidence to tackle first aid in the outdoors not just with a first aid kit but with improvisation too!

By far the most comprehensive teaching I have received around serious conditions such as stroke, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy

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

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

Each time I attend a course with Pete I feel like I have gained so much up to date 'new thinking' of what can be realistically achieved by a First Aider. Thanks again Pete

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

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!

28/01/2015 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Lakes First Aid

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!

This is the third first aid course I've been on with Pete who in my eyes is a great trainer. He keeps the content simple and practical therefore I leave the course feeling confident to deal with an emergency situation rather than overwhelmed. Lunch in the pub is obviously a bonus too! Many thanks.

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.

Testimonial from Gareth Trainor
18/10/2014 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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.

I did a two day outdoor first aid course with Pete Cunningham in October 2014. Simply put - this was the best, most practical, most interesting, and most relevant course that I have ever attended. Also enjoyable!
I speak from a lifetime of leading white water kayaking expeditions all over the world - so have a fair experience of real life first aid incidents.

Great course. I must have attended at least 15 first aid courses over 40 years and this was a good blend of discussion, practical, and video input. The advice was well thought through, backed up by experience and pragmatic throughout. I liked the input on the AED, FAST and concussion which was all new to me.

It's interesting to see the first aid issue from the other side of my daily job. A lot of useful information if you don't have your fancy medical kit in hand. And even medical professional like my self doesn't always carry medical kit everywhere. So for me it was a great experience.

Many thanks - I've attended First Aid programmes every three years of my career, and the last three with Pete. I still learn something new every time with all the complications stripped away to ensure we concentrate on the realistic immediacies that we really need to know - all delivered in good humour in an adult-to-adult way.

Testimonial from Nick Gannicliffe
02/08/2014 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

An extremely useful and enjoyable 2 days which puts 1st aid back into the realms of simple and effective treatment and adapts situations to be useful to outdoor scenarios, not just death by powerpoint.

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

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

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

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 John Allen
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.

Really good course, on courses ran by other organizations I have often left the course feeling overwhelmed with the knowledge I seemingly have to remember, whereas this is really simple, straightforward and I feel much more trained to deal with a real situation.

Pete (and Steve) were very approachable and fostered a relaxed and enjoyable learning environment.

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. Having been on numerous courses over the years this definitely stands out as one of the most relevant, interesting and informative courses making you feel comfortable with your decisions, treatments and confidence. Many thanks and I would really recommend this course to others as a breath of fresh air in first aid learning.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

Well done Pete, I think your delivery approach was excellent. The resources, video links, booklet, discussions made the 2 days go very quickly. Furthermore, the scenarios, in my opinion was the best, especially the way we did them outside.

Thanks again!

The day after the course I had my first ever medical emergency at work when I had to deal with a person having a seizure. I am glad to say that the extensive practice we had on the course meant that I was able to deal with the event effectively and with a minimum of drama.

Pete gave a really thorough course, in a laid-back and easy going style. I found it easy to take in and understand everything he taught me and also found it really enjoyable too. The combination of practical and theory based learning was spot on. Also the book that I received, by First Aid Cumbria, explains everything really well and is a fantastic resource. I would highly recommend Pete and First Aid Cumbria to anyone seeking a quality first aid course.

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

I thoroughly enjoyed the course having been on many first-aid courses, this one being the most useful and the quickest! The course tutor (Steve) was very knowledgeable and based most it on the outdoor industry. I loved the fact that we got to play around with many scenarios outside and put it into practice. I definately learned some very useful stuff and will certainly be passing round the knowledge to other staff members. I hope Steve provides my next first-aid course in 3 years time. I can't believe karrimor made the first storm shelters!

Simon was warm, friendly and he created lots of drama which I could relate to
every day. Just recently, I found a lady who fell off her bike and was bleeding and couldn't move. I called the ambulance and did the things Simon prepared us for. It was an interactive and clearly explained.

He included management of child and adult in the first aid course too.

Negative comments above are because I didn't receive any pre-course info nor did I know who was giving the course and so couldn't download any info. I knew to come prepared to work outdoors - adn that was all. Otherwise - first class throughout the whole course.

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


Testimonial from Greg Lambert
11/03/2013 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

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

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

Scenario based outdoor work adds to the usefulness for all who venture outdoors too. Go and see for yourself!

I have completed first aid courses before but never really felt competent as a first aider afterwards. This course is simple enough to make sense and save lives, feel very confident now. Although i never used to like taking part in first aid practicals, the practical element on this course is brilliant, it really helps the learning and skills to develop. Highly recommended.

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

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

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

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

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

01/12/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

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

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

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

Testimonial from Ben Fenner
19/11/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

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

Just to say a big thank you for an inspirational and practical course. Its has undone some of my wagon rut thinking over the last 30 or so years of doing first aid.

Simon, (the trainer), created a good environment in which people could learn what they needed to learn, consider and practise the the application of the learning and ask questions. Good course and good trainer.

Great course, First Aid really is simple if you follow the simple rules. excellent two days, full of vital information.

Testimonial from Peter Ravenscroft
09/11/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

Its really useful to refresh previous skills learned especially if you've not had cause to use since, 3 years doesn't seem that long but in reality it is. Great to find that the emphasis moving away from endless bandages and slings which have previously haunted me and moving onto clear precise instructions based around Danger, response and ABC's.

Active-Aid's approach to first aid is realistic and straighforward. The emphasis is on a real understanding of the basic principles, and the style of training is inclusive and flexible.

Simple, varied, logical. Pete reinforced simple approaches to numerous first aid scenarios in the outdoors through various methods and opportunities. Throughout he emphasised the logic behind his thoughts and those of Active-Aid. After twenty years of first aid courses and attending numerous incidents, this course was exactly what I was hoping for.

An amazing and very well detailed course. Especially liked the different scenarios we went though, it really put things in to perspective if you did come across an incident not just in the outdoors, pretty much anywhere. Thanks once again!!!!

Testimonial from Luke Biggins
24/10/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

At last a realistic approach to first aid and not a text book lesson that wishes to only tick the boxes. By using Pete's approach to First aid, lives could be saved be taking a realistic and instant response to life threatening conditions. Well done Pete keep up the good work

Pete has a very engaging style, and having attended many First Aid training sessions over the years, I found his approach very stimulating. No time to nod off with Pete - he continually challenges commonly accepted notions and makes students really think about what is appropriate. Great course Pete. Keep up the good work.

18/10/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

Testimonial from Kerstin Muller
11/10/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

Testimonial from Anthony Evans

Testimonial from Craig Davis
09/10/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

Testimonial from Ben Sparkes
09/10/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

The negative response for pre course info is due to bmc not Peter. The instructors personal experience was invaluable. It would have been nice to touch on emergency rope stretchers.

Brilliant course. Down to earth, simple, and practical. I left the course feeling empowered to use the common sense that I have, more knowledgeable about what I can do (and can't!), and with some new skills that because I fully understand what they are trying to achieve, should not be quickly lost.

Testimonial from Kim Mulji
04/10/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

I found the 2 day outdoor first aid course to be enjoyable and easy to understand. all the information given was simple and any un-needed or un-used information was left out. I would highly recomend this course for any one who works in the outdoors or is of an active learning persuasion.

Testimonial from Allen Turner
14/09/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

Testimonial from Carolyn Bailey
31/08/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by Simon Clooney

The content of the course exceeded my expectations and the presentation style was engaging, informative and entertaining.

The practical aspects were well-balanced with information sessions. I especially enjoyed the emergency scenarios which required the students to respond and apply what had been taught in the classroom.

Testimonial from John Waters

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

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

23/06/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

Stephen Brown was excellent! The course over met my exoectations as the last course I did (with British Red Cross)was awful and to be honest, I was dreading attending the course. Stephen made the course really interactive - there was a good variety of different type of activities and I felt like I learnt a lot of useful thing which I should be able to remember and be able to apply should the situation arise. Highly reccommendable.

13/03/2012 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

A brilliant course cutting away any previous OTT confusing information. First aid as it should be, life saving and not a practise scene from 'Casualty' ! That said, enough in depth to act as an ideal building block for further training and courses. Taught in a good relaxed manner in a friendly setting.

Pete's approach to first aid is very realistic/honest, particularly in not concealing the likely chances of success with CPR etc. Pete also has sensible expectations of how much course participants are likely to retain and is good at getting the essential points over. Overall a refreshingly simple approach to First Aid. Pete's experience in a wide range of outdoor situations came across during the course.

Just half an hour too long outside on the final day! Tired, cold and very windy weather, and we had an excellent input and practical session, but by this time we were just 30-45 minutes too long. It was an excellent two days however, and the venue and course tutor were excellent.

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

Despite previous training in first aid, I began the course with a great deal of anxiety and discomfort about my abilities as a first aid responder--16 hours later my confidence soared and I now feel better-prepared to respond during an emergency. For me, the most valuable part of this course was the continual practical application and repeated practice of DR ABC...! Thanks Simon!

This was the second one of Pete's programmes I have attended and it was refreshing that he was not just doing a repeat of what I had experienced 3 years previously. Pete has now included some really relevant videos and these combined with powerpoint, demonstrations and discussions enabled us to start to put our learning to good practice in some realistic scenarios. Thanks Pete.

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

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

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

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

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

I thought the venue for this couse is excellent,a good range of outdoor scenarios thought up, and there was not the over emphasis on play acting whichhave made previous courses with other providers something of a nightmare.

I wasn't expecting a different course from three years ago,but I was pleasantly surprised at how the trainers built on the existing experience of the group members. The extra emphasis on asthma cases was very instructive and thought-provoking,and the input of a full-time paramedic has been excellent.

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

An excellent course that keeps everything simple and uses up to date visual and practical aids at every opportunity. Pete's enthusiasm for the outdoors was clear throughout and linked in nicely with the course content, as well as the excellent brew facilities and pub lunch too!

Thanks for running the Outdoor First Aid course for us at the Grange hut this weekend - I certainly took much more in than other past first aid courses and would feel a lot more confident in applying the knowledge should I need to for real. I'd have no hesitation reccomending you to others.

The course was well-delivered by Pete Cunningham who had a relaxed manner but clearly communicated the priorities in providing effective first aid in a range of scenarios. Also good use of visual aids (film clips,pictures,dummies etc) which aid memory. The course book is clearly set out, and the weekend course has given me the enthusiasm to read it! A worthwhile use of time for someone who spends a lot of weekends and holidays wild places.

Great Course
Really good to have instruction from real life experience from 2 angles, Pete with is vast experience in the outdoor industry + first aid training and David with a real knowledge from many years as a Paramedic and also Paramedic Trainer.
The perfect combination.
Tie that in with a really practical look at first aid and you have a great course that kept me interested.
Thanks Lads

The course covered good breadth and depth - a hard balance but done well. Pete was very good he 'de-cluttered' the 'cupboard' of previous FA courses. In fact maybe finding out what people know before they come may increase that effect? anyway great course many thanks, the venue in particluar was very good.

Another thoroughly enjoyable course, very relevant to my area of work - the outdoors. The information was transfered in bite sized pieces which made it very easy to remember. The hands on nature of the course meant that my attention was held at all times, Pete's humour obviously helped as well! thanks will be back.

Pete is an enthusiastic tutor who provided a varied and interactive learning experience. I have done about 12 first aid courses in the last 30 years. This was definitely in the top 2 of those. I found it easy to learn from Pete and valued his experience and the way in which he was always able to answer my questions. I felt challenged, though in a supportive and fun atmosphere.

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

29/03/2010 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

Testimonial from Ingrid Ferguson

Testimonial from Philip Kendrick
12/03/2010 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

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

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

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

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



Testimonial from Frances Bell
24/02/2010 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

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

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

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

Testimonial from Andrew Horner

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

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

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

A great couple of days really nailing some basic skills. Very useful and practical scenarios were carried out over the 2 days which really helped in learning the sequence of dealing with a variety of situations. The trainer had an effective style which created a good environment to learn

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

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

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

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

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

Excellent course Pete. Enjoy isn't the word I'd use as I find it quite stressful - with so much information in such a short time. Personally I'd prefer a drip-drip approach.

Also booklet is excellent and I will refer it again and again to try to get keep these procedures in my mind.

I thought Pete was excellent. Clear, concise and pragmatic. I learnt lots of useful information as it was kept in an easy to understand format. I liked the way he kept using lots of different mediums for training (video, booklet, powerpoint, diaglogue, demonstrations) as it kept it interesting. Brilliant.

I found the course enjoyable, and particularly liked the emphasis on the key "Must-do's" ABC. I think i will definitely be able to retain the appropriate information under pressure if ever faced with a serious incident. This gives me confidence - prevous courses i have found a bit overloaded and left overwhelmed. This course was perfect - thank you very much Pete. Kathy

Thank you very much Pete. I really enjoyed the course. I think particular strengths are having so much opportunity to practice and repeat procedures and so feel confident with what we need to do. Assessing each other is great because it required us to constantly reflect on what we were doing and so reinforced the learning. Your style of delivery, and confidence in our ability to succeed is very affirming. Thanks.

The course repeats lots the "arrive at the scene what to do" bit witch is very useful when faced with a real situation. I have realised that i would do things differently if I ever was faced with the real situation i had to deal with again.

Really enjoyed the course, I was expecting to learn lots of stuff about how to deal with broken ankles/legs head injuries that I might get climbing. But putting all the heart attack/stroke/diabetes stuff in context makes me see that this is probably more useful.

Learning how to prioritise breathing/neck injuries was particularly interesting.

Cheers for a good weekend.

20/03/2008 — 'Outdoor First Aid 2 day' course by First Aid Cumbria.

A great hands on course. I think the session where you got us to train each other whilst managing a casualty really helped. It forced us to think about what we were doing and by vocalising it to someone else also meant that we had to put the sequence of treatment in a logical sequence. A very useful training aid. Hope to see you in the future - Kind regards Chris

Particularly impressed with Pete's personal experience of real first aid that backed up an incredibly thorough medical knowledge, and excellent delivery. He managed a group superbly that had a mixture of 'never done a 1st aid course' to some of the most experienced British Mountain Guides in the country. Pete is far more than someone who has been on a first aid trainers course! Highly recommended. Loz Colyer Deputy Head of Centre, Tower Wood LEA.

Pete

Just a quick word to say how much I enjoyed the first aid course. I guess I am like many clients who take part for NGB validation - I booked because it is a requirement of my BASI licence to say up to date. Having said that I would recommend your course to all, particularly outdoor enthusiasts and will be passing on your details to those at the NPA who deal with health and safety. You created a very positive and supportive atmosphere and the coaching progression and variety of styles and activity were great. I was intrigued by your idea of first aid training as a group development activity and I could well be in touch to talk about that in the future.

All the very best.
