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

“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.”

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 🙂 ”

Wellsway School, January 2018

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”
