I thought it was the best First Aid course I have ever done!

Sarah Crowther - Head, Bumblebee Nursery School

The course was great, really practical and to the point, and the step by step scenarios you gave were particularly useful. I like the way you reiterated everything and checked our understanding (esp as my brain is very sleep deprived so not functioning very well). Although it is horrible to think that something might happen to your child, knowledge is power and I feel a lot more confident in my ability to react calmly and respond quickly. The booklet that came with the course is very user friendly (just reading it now!). I love the flow chart on the back of your course flier

Kathy Langhorne

A fun and informative session which I think I will actually be able to remember. Excellent delivery. I feel much more prepared for any playground eventuality.

Oakfield Preparatory School

Overall it was a perfect course, the atmosphere, the venue, the opportunity for us to “add things” to the course that we wanted to know about. I would recommend your course to anyone with confidence. Many thanks again for the great day.

Beata - Parent

I came across First Aid for Life when searching for a course provider who could deliver on-site Emergency First Aid at Work training. From A to B the process was as straightforward and manageable as I’d hoped. The training was first rate – the feedback from the course delegates was all good – content delivered was easy to digest and all that attended now had the confidence to act in an emergency if necessary.
