“I have had 3 training courses with Alan – NNAS Bronze, REC HSE First Aid at Work, and BHF Heartstart – and all have been excellent. Alan’s extensive experience and knowledge is put to good effect in the training courses, and he combines a good mix of practical, hands-on training with videos and written materials. He delivers his courses brilliantly, making them interesting and fun, as well as informative. I feel very confident in the skills I have learnt, and I would recommend anyone considering such a training course to choose Alan!”
