What clients thought about Bigfoot First Aid Courses:

A very informative and interesting two day course. Thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Thank you very much, Sue.

I feel more competent after this course to fulfil my duties as a First Aider. The course was well presented. It proved very interesting for improving the standard equipment of our first aid kits.

Very good, everything explained very clearly and good revision sessions. Practical scenarios very good; they really made you think under pressure.

Alan controlled the group very well, always clearly answering any questions raised. A good mix of practical and theory. Obviously practical sessions were extremely useful. This is the first course I’ve been on with so much practical work. It was excellent. I’ve learned so much more & feel more confident – thank you, Liz.

This course is very comprehensive and the suggestions made by the course leader were most useful in improving out club first aid equipment.

An excellent programme which was relevant to my training needs.
