What our customers say about us

“During COVID, Acorn made the training (First Aid at Work Requalification) feel safe and safety aware.”

JA, Greenfield E-act Academy
January 2021

“Can I just pass on my thanks to Sarah Howarth who ran the first aid course for infants and children here today. The feedback from attendees has been excellent. Sarah was clearly very engaging and made the whole day an enjoyable experience.”

SH, Herons’ Moor Academy 
October 2020

“I attended the Paediatric level 3 First Aid course on 27 June and 4th July with Sarah Howarth. Firstly, can I say what a fantastic course it was. I really enjoyed it and thought Sarah was a brilliant trainer and obviously very passionate about first aid. I feel really confident walking away from my time with her and although I hope I don’t need to use what I learnt, I love that I feel I could.”

SB, July 2020

“We have had some great feedback in regards to the First Aid courses facilitated by Martin this week. A few colleagues have stopped me to say how he made everyone feel comfortable and was still able to deliver the course really well despite the changes with social distancing.”

PN, Bristol City Council
June 2020

“Just wanted to say ‘thank you’ for organising this training (Level 2 Paediatric First Aid). It went really well and everyone enjoyed the course. Sarah was great, made it fun and left everyone feeling very confident in their abilities to use what they have learnt. The socially distancing worked really well and everyone felt safe.”

KH, St Werburghs Primary School May 2020

“I just wanted to say a big ‘Thank you’ for my training. I had an incident last night with my son, he was struggling to breathe due to aggressively being sick. If it wasn’t for the skills Matt taught me, I wouldn’t have known what to do! He was rushed to the children’s hospital by ambulance, and is OK now and in safe hands, but it just made me think I only went on the course a few weeks before so I’m glad it helped me. I had him in the perfect position where he wasn’t choking on his own sick and I would have never known that if you hadn’t taught me so a very big Thank you!!”

AS, February 2020

“I attended training for the Emergency First Aid at Work on Tuesday 21st  January 2020. I just wanted to give praise to the gentleman who delivered the course, Matt.  It was hands down the best course I have ever been on.  It was engaging, funny, interesting and full of useful information.  Matt had a wealth of previous experience and knowledge in first aid and this really did make the course what it was. It is great to have training delivered by someone who has first hand knowledge of the subject. His stories will stay with me and inspired me to continue my personal development in relation to first aid. He really was first class! Thank you again.”

Action on Hearing Loss (AOHL), January 2020

“Excellent training course, made me feel at ease. Very thorough, told me lots I didn’t know, gave me confidence”

Carer, Nov 2019

“Matt was great, made it really interesting, learnt a lot of new things”


“Very enjoyable session, thoroughly enjoyed it!”


Dorothy House, June 2019

“Well presented and kept attention all day. Trainer always happy to clarify and promote discussion, which was useful. 10/10”

Avon Riding Centre, Feb 2019

“Fantastic! So useful and really important – everyone should do it! (First Aid)”

Bristol University, July 2019

“Excellent course with professional, funny and engaging trainers!”

Triodos Bank, Nov 2019

“Matt was very confident and knowledgeable giving lots of practical ideas and giving real life experiences to explain.”

Teaching Assistant, Nov 2019

“Matt was a great trainer, he kept things interesting and funny but was still able to emphasise the importance of our training. I thought it was great that he often gave us examples of real life scenarios.”

Teaching Assistant, Nov 2019

“The general consensus is that the course was very good with excellent training props, particularly for catastrophic bleeds, blocked airway & use of defibrillators.  A very worthwhile & relevant course.”


“Brilliant pace and refreshers are so important, especially when it has been a while since training – it is good for your own confidence!”


“Very friendly and knowledgeable instructor. I appreciated that the course was tailored to our needs”


WWT Arundel Wetland Centre, Oct 2019

“I would like to say, I think this is the best first aid course I have ever done. I have been doing these courses for over 20 years, Matt is an excellent trainer he allows great participation and involves the whole class, he is good at going through stuff to help everyone understand. Thank you Matt!!”

Nursery Manager, Sept 2019
