Ross (the trainer) was awesome, he covered everything. Its like he knew the handbook word for word! Brilliant trainer.

Mark Longmire, Evening Manager, The Sun Inn Ulverston - February 24th, 2018

The venue, facilitators and organisation are all excellent. Interesting and informative sessions in a professional, supportive, sensitive and enjoyable environment. I have been attending First Aid courses for over forty years and in my opinion these are the best by far! Great cakes too!!

Andrew Middleton, Outoor Teacher, Wild Country Walkabouts - February 24th, 2018

Probably the best Outdoor First Aid course I have ever done. Great teaching, great baking. Thank you to Luke the Instructor.

Katherine Milburn, Project Officer, West Cumbria Rivers Trust - February 24th, 2018

Fantastic course ,taught in a fun enjoyable way . Luke is a very likeable guy . I feel that the way the course was delivered made everyone feel comfortable , lots of practicle , but this wasn’t done in a way that made you feel uncomfortable ,lots of equipment meant we could work in pairs rather then watching each other. Thank you to Luke for making the course fun , and also giving us a good knowledge of first aid.

Jessica Mcglynn, Childcare Manager, Mark warner - February 24th, 2018

Probably the best course I have been on, I found doing the practical scenarios gave me more confidence especially the defibrillator training,

Steve Clayton, Maintenance , Season At Whitbarrow Village - February 24th, 2018

I had a great couple of days, it was fun, the tutor made me feel at ease and was able to answer everyone’s questions, and if we weren’t sure what he meant, he would do it practically. I enjoyed the scenario’s, having to think what you would do, it that emergency.

Helen Curry, Teaching Assistant , Patterdale School - February 24th, 2018

The best First Aid course I’ve attended in 20 yrs!

Martin Barratt, Senior Instructor, Outward Bound Trust - February 24th, 2018

What a great course. It wasn’t daunting like some of the courses I have attended in the past. It was a refreshingly simple modular approach that just kept building on the basics. Hopefully I won’t need to use any of the skills covered … but if I do come across a situation I’m fairly confident that I’ll probably get it right.

Tim Mosedale, Everest Expedition - February 24th, 2018

Deb and Ross were really friendly and made me feel at ease. Deb was great at answering any questions. The course was broken down into simple terms and it really helped that it was very practical as well.

I have been on several other first aid courses but I have to say this was by far the best. I would now feel confident in dealing with an emergency situation.

Verity Ellis, Wiltshire Farm foods - February 24th, 2018

Ross ran an excellent course. Well balanced level of infomation delivered by a very professional and knowledgeable instructor. We appreciated the varying styles of delivery especially the sessions outside which made the most of the spectacular Isle of Man countryside.

Simon Read, Director, The Venture Centre, Isle of Man - February 24th, 2018

I would definitely do this course again in the future and I’d recommend it to my colleagues

Adrienne Harrison-Cottrell, Integrative & Alternative Healthcare Practitioner, Health and Healing For All - January 27th, 2018

Friendly, upbeat, informative and great cakes at break times

Nick Landells, Mountain Leader / Photographer / DofE Expeditions, Lakeland Photo Walks - January 2nd, 2017

Well done

Geoff Osborne, Tour Guide, Mountain Goat - October 17th, 2016

Excellent course would highly recommend, will be going back.

David Fowlie - October 17th, 2016

Overall a really good course, covering all the basics of outdoor first aid. The trainer was knowledgeable, friendly, and approachable, and didn’t rely on a multitude of gory slides as most trainers seem to do these days.

Graham Uney - October 6th, 2016

Really well delivered course, easy to understand and just the right amount of material covered. Plenty opportunities to practice the skills in practical sessions.

Laura Fiske, Planning Officer, Friends of the Lake District - October 4th, 2016

Excellent course, learnt more on the course than any other first aid course I have attended. Thank you.

John Osborne, Reserve Manager, Natural England - October 3rd, 2016

Delivered what I required in a most professional manner. It was First Aid as it should be delivered. User friendly, the student coming first. All my questions answered. Great delivery.

Arthur Nelson, Facilities Support Technician, The Outward Bound Trust - September 28th, 2016

This was the most energetic, enjoyable, informative and rewarding outdoor first aid course I have ever been on…and I have been on quite a few!

Gwyneth Parry, Outdoor Pursuits Instructor, Sedbergh School - September 25th, 2016

I have been on quite a few first aid courses over the years and I can honestly say that this was the best I have ever attended.Ross delivered the course with enthusiasm and a sense of humour, but above all solid knowledge. There was an excellent balance between practical tasks and theory.

Carla Prescott, Pre School Assistant - September 25th, 2016

Lakes First Aid provided a professional and highly informative first aid course. The content was simple and logical, being easy to understand and memorable.

Gill Smith, Nursery Manager - September 22nd, 2016

Luke was very knowledgeable and personable and made everyone feel at ease. A first class course!

Al Nicholson - September 15th, 2016

Excellent, would highly recommend

Vicki Lockhart, Supply Chain Planner UKI, Nilfisk Ltd - September 14th, 2016

The course was great, Ross is a really nice guy and makes the learning process fun.

Nick Fuchs, Chef de Parie, Keswick Country House Hotel - July 26th, 2016

I really enjoyed the course. Ross made us feel relaxed and at ease to enjoy the practical parts which I was nervous about. We absorbed a lot of information during a well organised day which ran smoothly, building our skills and knowledge in a very well thought out programme.
