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

“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.”

JF, HIllcrest Primary School April 2018 (First Aid course)

“I have been taking First Aid courses for 33 years. This is the only one (Level 3 Paediatric First Aid) I have ever come away from feeling confident and have managed to take everything in. It was due to Matt as a teacher. He was very calm and explained things so clearly, as a teacher he was amazing. I have booked 4 other members of my family on your courses in the next couple of months. 10/10″

DB, Childminder, May 2018

AB, Bannerman Rd Childrens Centre, May 2018

SA, Alimo Care, May 2018

“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″

“Very well delivered, well placed, everybody found it helpful and useful. 10/10”

EM, Racks Bar and Kitchen, August 2018

“Sarah is a fantastic trainer. Personable, approachable, no silly questions. Made it fun. BEST training I’ve ever attended. 10/10”

CA, Pauls Place, August 2018

“I had the pleasure of attending a training course this week with one of your, first aid, trainers Matt. I have been on a few first aid training courses, as they need renewing, and today I walked away from the course having enjoyed it thoroughly, learned new first aid tips and I now feel a more competent first aider at work. I will also feed back to school on how we can improve our practice and make us a safer school or more importantly more proactive when accidents happen. Matt is a real credit to Acorn”


ZB, August 2018

“Excellent. A really useful day. Informative, fun, to the point and mixed up practical presenting and questions with lots of great examples. 10/10”


“Matt was possibly the best trainer I’ve had. Very knowledgeable. 10/10”


“Very interesting. Great conversations, videos and practical activities. One of the best I’ve had. Thank you for helping us organise our First Aid Box! 🙂 10/10”


Yeo Moor School, June 2018

“I just wanted to ensure we sent a thank you to Matthew who did our first aid course. We were fully booked with attendees, many of whom dread a day on a course like this, but they all stated how great it was and how much they learned. The instructor was patient and happily went into situations we deal with specifically enabling them to feel more confident in real life situations we do face as a venue. Thank you again, I would highly recommend you.”


VW, Clevedon Hall, February 2019

“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.”

EH, 23rd August 2018

“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.”
