The course was excellent. The tutors were very professional with a relaxed approach which I think promoted an environment that enabled a good lasting understanding of first aid that I would definitely feel competent in using if ever I was in a situation that required life-saving techniques. I would definitely recommend. Big thanks for everything.
I really enjoyed the course, it was relaxed but serious and I have definitely learnt a lot from Pete. It was also nice to meet the other Connex ladies and gentlemen and get to know them. Thank you for letting me onto the course
I enjoyed attending the first aid training yesterday and I would definitely recommend the course to other candidates. The practical side was the most enjoyable and interesting part. We practised CPR on the dummies and learnt how to put a casualty into the recovery position.
It was brilliant! Really well run… been on courses in the past that overloaded you with info… they got the balance right! Thanks, Connex!
I have been to first aid training before and felt overwhelmed with the amount of information which didn’t really enhance my confidence in stepping forward to administer first aid.
However, after Saturday’s training. I felt completely comfortable in walking out the door knowing that if I had to carry out CPR or deal with a choking child I could step up and do it.
Both Frazer and Pete were really informal in their approach, I felt relaxed and asked many questions – something that I normally hold back on! The session mixed practical and theory and the balance was just right!
Overall, I really enjoyed the training and did express an interest in further courses such as intro to early years and basic food hygiene!
