As a nurse of many years, I have done countless first aid courses and this course has been the best course I have ever attended. This is for lots of reasons from Amanda's great teaching style, sense of humour to the resources i.e. the ball and choking aid and the imaginative ways in which she delivers the assessments. It always usually very predictable when it comes to the scenario's but this is the first time i have been surprised. Really amazing and fantastic day! – Emergency First Aid at Work

I think some training can be boring. Amanda made it fun to learn. She is definitely an asset to yourselves – Moving & Handling

Amanda was thorough and made sure we understood before moving on. She also added fun to the mix, which made us relax and engage willingly – MVA

I found this course very enjoyable, the videos were emotional but I learnt so much. It made me value and appreciate what a great professional company I work for. I would love more training. Thank you – Safeguarding

Very very good teacher! Made things normally complex easy to understand – Mental Health & Learning Disabilities

I found by training to be informative, interactive, interesting and enjoyable. Thank you Karl for your knowledge, I enjoyed it :) – Medication Awareness
