First With Iain Testimonials

On every course we provide we ask for feedback. These client reviews help us improve our courses to better meet your needs. Here's just a small sample of student reviews andcomments:

"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.

EFAW Course In Bideford.

"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."
Last minute REC 2 course

"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."
Remote Emergency First Aid Course

"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 courses but this was by far one of the best, not at any point did anyone look bored. Iain kept it fun and very interactive, with 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."

"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!)"
