“Absolutely brilliant - no complaints what so ever.”

“It was great. Really interactive, great discussion and use of equipment. It was fantastic, much better than the previous first aid course I have done.”
- Megan,
“I rate the course very high. Information is delivered clearly, in a structured way. The practical scenarios help considerably to retain the theory through application. Having a handbook to refer to is great as quite a lot of information is covered and initially I found it difficult to retain as it was a bit of 'information overload'.”
- Amanda,
“A very well informed course. I have learnt so much about First Aid that I did not know.”
- Tanis, Alfriston College
“Time passed quickly, felt confident at end.”
- Gail, St Johns Mairangi
“Excellent rapport with the staff, lots of fun, and good at communicating the information. As well as learning loads we all had a lot of fun together. This rapport was really important and made a big difference to the course because staff weren't excited about staying an extra 4 hours at work.”
- Patria, Robertson Road
“Waikowhai Intermediate holds camps each year and it was thought that the Outdoor First Aid course was the best for the teachers involved in this - office staff have always joined in on the Outdoor First Aid course, it seems to cover everything we need at school and more. I would definitely recommend this course, have done many over the years (refreshers) but found yesterday one of the better refreshers.”
- Jennifer, Waikowhai intermediate
“Danny was brilliant, made the course fun, easy to understand and relatable. He was animated, and had some great first aid stories to keep the day interesting. It is always good to have realistic scenarios to practice on. It helps you to ensure everything sticks and gives opportunities for finding out where you need help. Amy – YMCA”

“We have been using First Training for a number of years now and have been very pleased with the service. The course we undertook last night was the best that I have attended - Michael was an excellent communicator and he was ably assisted by Sarah. We were impressed by Michael's knowledge and his skill in making the learning fun. His practical approach was the best way to learn how to respond to emergencies. I have had a lot of very positive feedback from the 27 staff who participated including comments that they had learned much, revised knowledge in a way that they think they will remember for a long time. Thank you very much. We highly recommend this training team. Julia Beaumont”

“I was impressed by Emma’s skill in using different teaching strategies/techniques to help us remember facts. Her digital skills are excellent and her manner with us all was most polite and professional. I know it must be hard to teach teachers, especially after a long day at work for us, but Emma kept us interested, moving around, and she covered all relevant topics.”
- Pip Simonian, Saint Kentigern Boys’ School
“5. Please rate the course itself? Rate highly, good refresher, tailored to fit our diverse group and particular needs Top of the line, again. Very impressed and would welcome back...well...probably making the choice to continue to go with First training will in part be contingent on having the same instructor. Emailing the certificate back so promptly is a nice touch.”
- Karen, Diabetes Trust
“Our instructor was awesome very approachable , made me feel confident with everything I was doing and learning. Big ups to the instructor who came all the way to teach us at NGA HAU E WHA MARAE, PUKEKOHE you were awesome Nga mihi. The different Scenarios did it for me, how to react and respond to everything. Danny made it easy for us through his teachings E Noho Ora Mai”
- Ririana Taupo,
