  • Just had feedback from my guys who attended the First Aid Course yesterday. I have never received such good feedback from any course I have sent the guys on. They were all very impressed with the whole days course and the trainers were said to be "fantastic". This morning I was waiting for the moans and groans but it was totally the opposite and sang your praises to the highest level! A particular mention was for Laura who was apparently VERY VERY good and very impressed with the way she delivered the course. So from me, thank you for delivering what was said to be a very enjoyable and very informative course!

  • Thank you very much for the 2 free free first aid courses the parents found them to be very useful and were surprised how much was covered in such a short time. The delivery was amazing (parents words) and very informative. Thank you again and I look forward to working with you in the future.

  • May I express my sincere thanks in the course taken this week which I earlier today obtained my FAW. From the initial contact with yourselves the service provided was very prompt, efficient and professional without any faults, issues or hiccups which seems to be the norm these days. On to the actual course. The tutors (Brian & Mick Dennant) delivering the training was 1st class in that not only did they keep the flow going but interesting and to the point without any lethargic or boredom points that can arise in some training. They are not only a credit to First Response but also contenders for the stage should they wish a change in career direction as the humour was uplifting and consistent.

  • I have just completed the First Aid at Work Requalification course. This is my ninth renewal but I have always faced it with a feeling of dread, however, 3 years ago I was introduced to First Response First Aid. I was so impressed with the standard of presentation and delivery, my employers now use your service for the retraining of all our First Aiders...and I admit to enjoying my latest course! Thank you
