CLient Testimonials

Wonderful 2 day First Aid Training organised by Frank at First Aid Direct. Frank was very flexible with our staffs very busy schedules and the training provided was top notch.


Zoe Winston, Gordon Elliott Racing
(2018 Aintree Grand National Winner)

Frank provided an excellent First Aid training course for our TY students. He delivered information in a very professional concise manner and students also completed hands on training as part of the workshop. The First Aid Certificates were delivered less than a week after the course was completed and students, staff and parents are delighted with the two year First  Aid qualification. 

I would highly recommend this training for staff and students.

I had done training with First Aid Direct while working for a large Restaurant chain. When I started my own business, they were the first name in my mind for Training. The instructor was excellent and concentrated on aspects of the training that were more relevant my business.

Health and safety has become such a large part of managing a sports team. It’s for that reason that we had First Aid Direct come in and do a basic first aid course for all our Coaches. Due to the fact that the managing director Frank has been involved in sports team himself we knew that the training we got wouldn’t be full of fluff but hone in on the situations we may realistically see.

We had a problem, we wanted our staff trained but could not afford the down time. The solution after searching the web was First Aid Direct’s Online Courses. The courses were excellently presented and easy to follow. As a result, we had our staff trained but without the down time .They could do the course themselves on their own time.

After a scare with my Husband nearly choking, I decided that I needed to do a basic first aid course. A friend recommended First aid Direct as she had done one of their courses for work. The training facility in the Red Cow was very handy and the instructor very easy to follow. I hope that I won’t have to use the knowledge learnt but if I do I would be confident that the course prepared me.
