Forest School First Aid, Shrewsbury, 20-21st Sept. 2017
The way we were asked to rate each other worked really well and helped us to get the most out of the role play. Lots of role play that was good. However, I found doing such long hours over 2 days was really difficult and would have preferred 3 shorter days.
Real life situations helped to put the skills into context.
Really enjoyed the scenarios.
Thank you Cara.
Cara delivered competently and interesting content for this course.
Good course content and delivered well but feel the course would be better to be spread over 3 shorter days as it can be harder to concentrate towards the end of the two long days.

Better than any other first aid training I’ve had before as it was more ‘hands on’. Feeling more confident to deliver first aid.
Excellent first aid. I feel I have a much more thorough understanding of the processes for helping in a first aid situation compared to previous courses. Practical activities helped to reinforce methods. Thank you.
The practical scenarios were very useful as they tested your knowledge in different ways. Much better than previous first aid courses. Very clear explanations and Cara answered all questions.
