  • I am writing to offer some feedback around the recent training that Nigel recently received courtesy of SMBC Early Years. Nigel has a training background himself and he came back from the course full of compliments for ‘Glenn’ from First Response, he said the trainer was supportive, informative and very professional. He delivered the course at an even pace to cater for the participants learning need, he demonstrated patience when members in the group did not fully understand anything, the occasions for which were in themselves few and far between. The course was enjoyable and he certainly benefited from the updates that it included. We will be recommending your services.

  • Glenn was a very knowledgeable & competent trainer. He was friendly & explained everything to a level to suit all present. He coped with all the unusual questions & scenarios which we have come across excellently. I would highly recommend him as a trainer for groups of all abilities & feel he should be commended for his hard work.

  • I would just like to say I found the course well structured, and very informative with special emphasis on excellent presentation. The instructor Mr Brian Dennant was obviously very knowledgeable and experienced, he possessed excellent communicating skills and made the group and myself feel at ease from the outset. It was excellent; we all enjoyed the two days thoroughly. Thank you so much! Fantastic instructor, made me feel a lot more confident.

  • I just wanted to pass on how much all the staff who attended enjoyed the excellent Defib training yesterday with Rod. We all found it interesting, informative and extremely well taught. Thanks to Rod, we all feel very confident that we would be able to deal with an emergency situation that required either CPR or use of a Defib. Many thanks
