I recently undertook an REC L3 Outdoor First Aid at Work course with Alan at Bigfoot Services Ltd.
I chose Alan based on the many glowing recommendations he had received and was not disappointed. Alan made all candidates on the course feel at ease, whether re-qualifying or brand new to first aid, as well as supplementing learning materials with many real-life experiences.
While many previous first aid courses I’ve undertaken over the years have been “death by PowerPoint”, practical exercises and scenarios with Alan were made as realistic as possible, enhanced with the use of “Casualty Simulation (CasSim)” – basically, props and make-up to give the impression of a real injury (embedded object, amputation, severe bleed etc.). Rather than the usual “pretend there’s a cut there”, Alan’s technique made for a much more realistic environment in which to practice and gain confidence in your first aid skills.
Having attended first aid courses from many providers for over 15 years, I have to say this was the best I have ever attended and will be booking with Alan again when it comes time for renewal
