“I found it all very helpful and interesting. In future at work, I will ensure to keep in mind safe practice at work and ask about lockdown plan and whereabouts of the defibrillator. I really enjoyed how enthusiastic Matt was and he made the session interesting and fun. I feel I learn better when a trainer is enthusiastic. I enjoyed hearing his stories.”

“I really enjoyed the flow of the day and how it naturally followed our conversations instead of being rigid. Matt is a really engaging teacher and the anecdotes given by him and the group helped me understand the situations more. In future at work, I will be much more aware of the procedure and I understand the different terminology and order behind things. 10/10”

“Amanda is by far the most engaging and knowledgeable trainer I’ve met (First Aid at Work). It was an absolute pleasure to be taught by her and I hope if I had more training she would be the trainer. I feel I’ve learnt and retained more information due to her excellent teaching methods. I will be more confident now when dealing with First Aid emergencies.”

“Matt was wonderful and I really appreciated the way he ran the course (First aid at work). He really engaged the group and made me feel safe and comfortable with what was quite daunting as a first time first aider.”

MP, University of Bristol
November 2021

“The West of England Moving and Handling Trainers Foundation Course (train the trainer) was the best update I have completed in my 20 years of training, having completed with many local and national companies. Sarah presented at our level with lots of good tips to help our care staff, plus looking at equipment that I hadn’t seen before. Just loved the slide sheet sleeve/glove and only £9, so adding it to my kit. Although I had a long trip over (and even longer one back due to two road closures) it was well worth it.”

Prestige Nursing
November 2021

“There were no parts of the training that were unhelpful (Emergency First Aid at Work). I feel much more confident in making quick decisions. It has given me motive to want to extend my knowledge. It was the best first aid course I have done. Great atmosphere, very well taught, excellent training!”

November 2021

“The course was very well presented and informative (First Aid at Work). I now have an awareness of First Aid equipment and people’s behaviour.”
