I'm very grateful for your time and efforts to help us all through today's material. Your guidance on the first aid course will come in handy should the need arise. With any luck, we won't need to use it, but I feel much better prepared, especially as the role of teacher & mentor, that my students can now rely on me to provide first aid competently.

I wish all the best to you and I recommend the course to anyone thinking of attending in the future.

Kind Regards,

Sussex Partnership NHS Trust Community Mental Health Centre, East Sussex

"Really excellent training, first time someone has actually explained what is happening in details rather than just how to respond. Has made me feel much more confident and was very engaging."

"This was the clearest basic life support training I’ve done since becoming a mental health nurse. Straightforward instructions that people are likely to remember."

"He was really knowledgeable and answered all questions really succinctly! Very very good!"

"Excellent. Very thorough – easy to follow and good explanation – good training manner – friendly and professional."

"Really informative, relaxed and fun. I feel like I’ve learnt a lot and gained more confidence. Fantastic trainer."

"Delivered really well, kept it interesting, clear and concise. Great trainer!"

Sussex Partnership NHS Trust Swandean Hospital, West Sussex

"He was an absolute inspiration. The content of the course was fascinating as he gave real life situations, explained everything in a way that made perfect sense and engaged the whole group throughout. It was just an amazing afternoon with so much to take away. London Ambulance Service loss is SPFT's gain! More of Dave please!!!!"

"He engaged us from the start and taught us all we needed to know in a meaningful way. He was obviously very knowledgeable and explained all aspects of his training to help us feel more confident and competent."
