Will and his team delivered an excellent Outdoors First Aid course over 2 days. Well planned, very detailed and a lot of real life scenarios to deal with. Highly recommended.

Without a doubt, the best first aid course I've attended to date. Will (and Jane) were fun, knowledgeable and approachable. Information was tailored to the needs of the group, and the repeated, realistic 'outdoor' scenarios really helped to reinforce learning and give confidence. Very highly recommended and I'm looking forward to renewal in a few years' time.

I recently undertook a 4-day advanced outdoor first aid course with Will and Joe, and it by far exceeded my expectations! The knowledge, teaching style, and practical approach of both instructors was first class. I would highly recommend this course to anyone heading into the hills, jungle, mountains, or other remote locations, whether it be for leisure, research or work. You won't regret it!

Did the outdoors first aid course over 2 days with Will and Jame and it was a great experience. The course is very full on with a lot of information and practice but Will and Jame had a great delivery which helped a lot with absorbing all the information and keeping focused! After the course I felt like I truly learned something valuable and practical that I could use in my life and climbing practice!

I did the 2 day Outdoor First aid with Lizzy in early January and it was by some margin the best first aid course I have done. Lizzy is a great teacher with a (quite alarming) wealth of first hand experience to draw upon. She managed to get all of the students to share their experiences too which added to the richness. The inclusion of the scenarios was hugely valuable and made the whole course more fun but also more realistic. Lizzy clearly enjoys this aspect and took delight in setting them up. I would thoroughly recommend this outfit if first aid is on your agenda, and Lizzy in particular.
