What our customers say about us
“I’ve been on a first aid course at the uni of Bristol for the last 3 days with a trainer called Matt. I just wanted to email to say that he gave us some of the best first aid training I’ve ever experienced (and honestly, some of the best teaching I’ve ever received full stop) – everyone I spoke to during the course agreed with me that he was engaging, patient, personable and knowledgeable. The time passed so quickly because it was clear how much he cared and how much he wanted to give us his knowledge, not just because it was his job but because he, personally, wanted us to be well equipped to give people first aid in real life. Thank you for sending him! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my colleagues, friends and family, both as a trainer and a first aider.”

“We had our FASET audit today and passed with flying colours thanks to the help from Sam, and him coming over and spending hours getting stuff to together with me and also doing our fire risk assessment without him it would have taken me a lot long and a nervous breakdown on the way!
So please pass on our thanks to Sam.”

Manual Handling Course: “I just wanted to let Sarah know that one of the participants at the client moving and handling training you delivered at Colliers Wood on the 7th November has made a point of telling me verbally how much she enjoyed the training and in particular how relevant you made it to the dialysis environment and importantly what a great trainer you are. So a big thank you from me and the team at Fresenius 🙂 ”

Foundation Level Manual Handling and First Aid at Work:
“We received the above training over two weeks which was much appreciated. Although we have filled in individual feedback forms on the day, I thought I would give some positive feedback with regards to the course itself and both trainers Matt & Ayshea.
The first aid course delivered by Matt was extremely enjoyable. Whilst going through the mandatory information for the course, Matt was able to adapt some areas of the course to suit our service needs which was great.
Matt’s delivery was excellent and we were laughing whilst learning.
The Manual Handling course delivered by Ayshea was informative, hands-on and very thorough.
Ayshea came across very knowledgeable & confident about this area and delivered the course at exactly the right pace.
Overall feedback from all that attended was positive.
I have recommended Acorn to our Training Manager for further courses throughout GCH”
