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”
