“I just wanted to let you know that 10 of our volunteers attended first aid training with Matt on Friday 19th May 2017 and we really enjoyed it! Matt is a very entertaining trainer who has the ability to make it fun yet still deliver the important content! We all came away feeling confident with our new skills! A huge thank you for accommodating our needs as an organisation, we really appreciate it, and will definitely be looking into other courses. Acorn deliver”
Leonie Pollinger, South Gloucester Parents & Carers
“I have had first aid training and now the IOSH course through Acorn. both courses were great very professional with both trainers being excellent getting the point across in a very relaxed way. Thanks Roger for an enjoyable course. I thought the pace, content and the way in which it was presented was first class. As an added bonus I thought lunch was great”
Robert Wiltshire, HH Willis Physcis Lab
The most effective manual handling training session I have undertaken.
The Emergency First Aid course was helpful specifically using the Defib. I found the course good fun.
The First Aid at Work Requalification course was helpful in reviewing changes in practice over the last 3 years. The Defib training will potentially help more people sooner. Matt made everyone feel at ease & the group intergrated and engaged quickly
The Administering Medication training was helpful in understanding about EpiPens and how to administer eye drops.
I found all of the 12 hour Paediatric First Aid course helpful! It was good to hear all the information and it made me feel more confident. I found Linda extremely clear in her explanations and teachings. The facilities were good and it was organised very well.
The Asbestos Awareness course I found really interesting/fascinating and worrying. I found the Statistics re: Asbestosis, really highlighted the problem & identification of materials containing asbestos was useful for my working environment.
Each and every part of the Asbestos Awareness course showed how ignorant I was concerning asbestos. I will ensure that work done in our premises will be done and recorded properly.
The delivery of the IOSH Managing Safely course was perfectly blended between reading and discussion/participation.
All of the Free Infant and Child Resuscitation was helpful especially choking, as it always been a fear of mine.
The Free Infant and Child Resuscitation course was very helpful, and Matt was great.
All of the Free Infant and Child Resuscitation course was of value, particularly choking- as this is my fear with young children. I want to complete a full First Aid course now.
