On every course we provide we ask for feedback to help us improve our courses to better meet your needs.


Firstly I would like to say a massive thank you for the fantastic session that was delivered to our team this afternoon!

I had received positive feedback from other staff members and had seen aspects of the session myself but today was the first session I was able to see fully and I was really impressed.

Iain was friendly and able to keep all the young people engaged and the session was relevant to them – 3.5 hours was the perfect length for our students who are doing first aid alongside other workshops.

It was obvious that Iain was extremely knowledgeable and confident in delivery of  the session and answering any questions that were given to him – often relating this back to real life scenarios. The session was extremely professional and obviously working to ofqual regulations which made it even more valuable. 

With this in mind and having spoken to Iain at the end of the session I would like to look to book in for further sessions with teams across North and Mid Devon next summer.

Feedback from our latest Remote Emergecny Care First Aid Course:

This was my 9th outdoor first aid course and easily the most relevant to my specific needs as well as being very enjoyable. Iain tailored the REC syllabus to our workplace (the woods) and delivered it completely outdoors as requested. Highly recommended.

Feedback from our latest Level 2 Certificate in Activity First Aid Course:

Hello Iain,

Just a quick thank for the excellent course last Wednesday/Thursday. I have done quite a few over the years but felt I got more out of this one than any other I had been on. So many thanks.


Feedback from a recent Level 3 Certificate in First Aid at Work Course:

Iain, many thanks for my level 3 first aid at work course, Having known you for some years it actually pains me to admit it.....But you done a great job, course content was excellent, you keep it fun and original, the training venue you have is great, See you in 2 year 6 months for the next. Well done mate proud of you.  


Feedback from a recent Level 2 Certificate in Activity First Aid Course:

Brilliant having training onsite in a "real" situation - and in the wet!

It was wonderful to learn in our business environment which made it more real and will help me to be assertive should anything happen here or elsewhere. Very approachable -Thank you

Feedback Form content from a recent REC level 2 Outdoor First Aid Course:

very interactive, great detail and tailored to my area in the outdoors.  Really enjoyed outside practical - really helpful to practice real life scenarios.  Feel much more confident to enter a situation with confidence to do something about it.  Really enjoyed the practical sessions. The course was broad and informative.  A weekend away in Devon was great. The informations was goodas well as directions to the venue.  The small group made the course.

Feedback form content and an email received reference an EFAW course on 22 Sep 13 in Bideford.

Learning resources and delivery was great.  I have a good understanding of first aid now.  I would be confident to put into practice what I have learned today.  Just wanted to say a huge thanks for the course you ran for us on Sunday. It was brilliant!  I've recommended you to a few of my friends who also need their EFAW qualification to take their Level 2 course.

For anyone looking for a good review of Iain's services, look no further. Iain took me on for a last minute REC 2 course a couple of weeks ago which I needed urgently for my new job. He was very accommodating (plentiful supply of coffee), highly professional and overall a top bloke. Course was adapted perfectly for the scenarios which I am likely to encounter at work. Needless to say I will be renewing my qualifications with him in the future.

This is an excellent course tailored to meet the needs of both the entry level and the more experienced first aider. Iain, who is obviously passionate about teaching his subject, created a relaxed and enjoyable environment. His deep understanding of first aid coupled with his years of adventure training provides the student with a wealth of useful and potentially life saving skills. This is the ideal course for the adventurer, outdoor worker or even the office employee. Many thanks.

Excellent package, well delivered and tailored to meet the needs of your group. A real eye opener to the first aid skills you can use in the office or on the hills. It is a must for anyone who wants to make a difference in the most testing of situations.

Recently attended a 2 day REC 2 First Aid training course with Iain, From the first contact and booking he was extremely professional communications were excellent and prompt. The training was top class, well delivered and his knowledge of the subject was excellent. Being an outdoor instructor myself for many years I have attended many First Aid course's but this was by far one of the best, not at any point did anyone look bored, Iain kept it fun and very interactive lots of equipment to play and use to help us build up our skills and confidence. I think for the first time ever I quite look forward to my next course.

Wanted to send you a quick email to say that the class attendees today were well pleased with your course and presentation.  Some of us have completed numerous First Aid Courses and comments are being texted to me about your course being the best they have ever attended.

( Don't let these comments sink in too deep as you did not teach us how to treat a swollen head).

Well done fella, Thanks for the assistance teaching and guidance.  Rumour has it your off to Wales for something, Have a safe one.
