Testimonials


John Holmes was very informative about all aspects of the course. No only was he teaching us what to do but explaining why which helped my understanding so much more. Good balance of theory and practical.

Molly was incredibly knowledgeable and professional. She delivered the information in an organized way and added her own experience to the material which made it easer to learn and understand. There was a lot of information covered but she made it fun. She controlled the class at all times, stayed on course/time schedule and ensured that everyone had enough time/attention to understand the material. I didn’t expect learning first aid to be so much fun but it really was. Molly was terrific!

Rod shared a wealth of very relevant information with us. He kept the course on track, kept everyone engaged and left me feeling confident to deal with any incident I might encounter. The training equipment has improved vastly being interactive with immediate feedback on effectiveness of chest compressions for example.

Brian Salvona, Bangholm Outdoor Centre (2 Day Outdoor Emergency First Aid Course), Dec 2018

Andy was very enthusiastic and covered all the syllabus and specifics that we asked about throughout. He was clear and recapped on day 2. He enabled confidence to grow and gave specific examples throughout too. There was plenty of variety of slides, practicals and explanations and referring to pages in the books. Andy is calm, patient and has a good balance of training styles depending on the approach needed for differing individuals. Many thanks.

Kenneth Rankin, Glenmore Lodge (2 Day Outdoor Emergency First Aid Course) Dec 2018

Very engaging and personable; easy to listen to; taught specifically into our personal situations; easygoing and fun. Christine had a fount of knowledge that she drew on as required, with great stories to illustrate and elaborate on teaching points. I also liked her ability to review practical tasks and draw maximum learning from them. Brilliant BASP course as always.

Nick Smith, Lomond MRT Base (2 Day Outdoor Emergency) Nov 2018

Iain was happy to address specific questions from us while still giving us all the relevant info on various situations. Very relaxed atmosphere but also informative. Iain made a point of tailering course to the specific needs of the group.

Throughout my 35 year career in outdoor education I have been on numerous first aid courses and had many excellent trainers. Chris stands out as being the best of all of them. He is very experienced and emphasises what’s important and what’s not. Great course.

Lance Solf, Germany (2 Day Outdoor Emergency) Nov 2018

Keith was brilliant, very approachable, answered all questions and made the course interesting and easy to understand. I really enjoyed how much practical elements there were in the course. Role playing different scenarios was very helpful for me to let the information sink in and how it could be applied in real life.
