“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.”
