We’ve received great feedback from our satisfied customers and trainees over the years. Here is just a handful of their comments

“I really enjoyed this course (Level 2 Paediatric First Aid). This is my 3rd time attending and although there were only a few of us, Matt did a thorough job. He made it fun, relevant and we re-capped CPR and everything we had learnt from the 1st session on day 2. This was really beneficial. 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.”

“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.”

“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!”

“All of the course was useful (First Aid for Adults & Children). It contained a good mix of listening and practical. I feel more confident with everyday issues such as nosebleeds.”

“I have previously been trained by Acorn and the trainers have always been very engaging. My confidence level has increased from this course (Emergency First Aid at Work)

“I feel compelled to contact you regarding your splendid trainer Matt. I have attended several first aid courses in the past, yet this one proved to be above and beyond the finest by a country mile (Emergency First Aid at Work on 14th July). This is chiefly due to Matt who effortlessly presented himself as:

  • Knowledgeable
  • Respectful
  • Pragmatic
  • Entertaining
  • Accessible

Matt’s ability to create a supportive and relaxed environment for learning has greatly assisted me in my recall of the key points from the training, combined with enhancing my confidence in being a first aider.”


MN, South Bristol Youth Consortium for Young People

“Thank you again for an amazing training; one of the best and most professional that I have ever attended to in UK.”

“Absolutely brilliant trainer. He was passionate about first aid and presented it in a very interesting way. Best first aid course (Level 3 Paediatric First Aid) I have attended and I have attended many over the years. First time I have left feeling confident to administer First Aid”

October 2020

“I learnt a lot more on my refresh course than I did on my original qualification. Loads of group discussions which reassured my way of thinking or challenged me to think otherwise. Matt was amazing, full of knowledge and confident in delivery of the course. he made the session fun and interactive”

July 2020

“I recently completed the Fire Marshal training you provided. I want to firstly say that the training was excellent, engaging and I would like to highly commend the trainer Roger for the afternoon.”
