Our Leeds Reviews & Feedback

I attended a first aid training at the Leeds centre. Lots of practical training. The trainer was enthusatic and personal, I really enjoyed the course! The cost was also the best I could find in the leeds area. I’ve been to a lot of safety training providers and this was the best. Top marks to Mark and the team!

Awesome first aid course! Really enjoyed all of the practical first aid exercises; CPR, AED’s, choking first aid, eye injury, spinal injuries, etc. The first aid trainer made the class really fun. Been on some first aid courses before that were a bit boring to be honest, but this one was great! Thanks guys.

Instructors are pleasant and well-informed at all times. The first aid instructors encourage inquiries and teach until everyone feels confident with the newly acquired first-aid practical skills during my 1 day training.
