Thank you for providing an excellent first aid training for all the practice. You worked flexibly, tailoring the training to all our needs: from receptionist to GP and involving us without us feeling self- conscious and there was lots of hands on practice. A thoroughly informative and useful training experience which we will definitely continue to use and I would highly recommend to all.

I needed to update my CPR for appraisal and feeling a bit jaded about going on yet another course, then I attended one of Emma’s courses at a local GP surgery. Not only did I learn plenty that I didn’t already know, I came away feeling positively inspired (and more confident in dealing with emergencies!) Emma was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and brought CPR to life! Brilliant.

Our trainer, Paul, was very knowledgeable, and included all of us in the learning experience. We covered a lot of... material and there was plenty of time to ask questions. It was a very interactive course. I feel confident to deal with a variety of situations that I wouldn't have known how to deal with before. Thank you, Paul!read more

Thoroughly enjoyed this First Aid course. The course was brilliant, not only did it take place in a air conditioned... room on one of the hottest days of the month, but the course was very hands on with lots of opportunity to practice the life saving techniques. The course instructor Steve was truly exceptional, he communicated well, was very knowledgeable and interacted well with all the delegates. I would definitely use First Aid for Life again and again and am happy to recommend them.read more

We used First Aid for Life for some in-house First Aid training for the coaches and managers at our cricket club. Those... who participated came away with a lot more confidence and knowledge on how to support club members who may need first aid, and also what pro-active measures should be in place to minimise risk as much as possible. A great session, thanksread more

I've had over 20 years of First Aid courses in various locations and environments. Without exception this was the... best. From the get go we were very well informed and kept up to date with information during the COVID-19 developments and it's subsequent restrictions and limitations. The course was very well attended (including 5 of my own Team) by a diverse crowd with varying experience and requirements. These were all answered and handled exceptionally. Clarity in explanation and understanding was second to none and it's the very first time a course leader has not only explained the biomechanics of certain situations and techniques but also applied relevant, practical and common sense! Cannot recommend them enough.read more
