Aquatic First Aid Feedback

 

These are just some of the comments that have been collected from various courses, all of which have been run since 1st January 2022. They have been reproduced as they were written and accurately reflect the positive feedback received on all Decisive First Aid courses.

 

 

Great Course - specific to water activities - learnt loads above + beyond a basic first aid course. Andy knows his stuff - excellent delivery, informative and professional

(L.H.)


Course was usefully biased towards our usual operating environments - paddlesports in scouting - but topics and procedures covered all necessary topics and more general applicability, reminding us that its applicable in any environment.
(N.V.)

Course is very good. Covers everything and is explained very well and goes into loads of detail. All practical elements were delivered brilliantly and feedback was issued when needed.
(G.W.)

Andy brings his experience as a paramedic and paddler to help simplify and talk about first aid in a logical and calm way.
(D.W.)

Great videos and background info from tutor.
(M.N.)

 

 

Very useful and every paddling guide should participate on this course. The trainer made everything very relatable and logical for effective learning.

(H.K.)

 

Very well run course for everyone interested in paddlesport more in depth.

(M.J.)

 

Excellent course for paddlesport leaders and/or coaches. Highly recommended.

(R.V.)

 

Excellent and really useful.

(O.J.)

 

My brain is full of new stuff that needs to settle and review. All was good.

(P.K.)

Really enjoyed the course. Really helpful in teaching how to tackle an incident and gives good confidence
(R.W.)

Excellent course again and happy to continue recommending Andy to run courses.
(D.W.)

Would recommend course.

(S.W.)

 

Very informative.

(S.S.)

 

Great teaching experience.

(K.O.)

 

Great course.

(D.S.)

 

An excellent course, well delivered with the right level of seriousness and humour to ensure engagement throughout.

(B.M.)

 

Very good to know how to use a defibrillator.

(N.V.)

 

I had a really good day. The instructions were clear and engaging and I felt I learned a lot.

(C.G.)

 

Very valuable to do a general first aid course that was also tailored to paddlesports and considered the additional challenges of that context.

(C.S.)

 

Great course. Andy made it very relevant to us and used lots of practical visual aids to help communicate the information, as well as giving real life examples from his paramedic experience. Would definitely recommend!

(F.M.)

 

Thank you. Really enjoyed the courseband learning how to use first aid in paddling scenarios.

(K.B.)

 

Really well run, informative course, with all the content you would want to be included. Andrew's delivery was excellent.

(C.S.)

 

Liked the use of props to illustrate points. e.g shaving foam for coronary artery disease.

(N.H.)

 

Good combination of theory and practice. I found the real-life videos most useful, and the breakdown into smaller groups to practice. Would be a good course for anyone to do in combination with an on-the-water safety course. Very useful!

(C.S.)

 

Excellent course. Material delivered well with knowledge in an entertaining way.

(G.C.)

 

 

Engaging, great energy, very clear explanations and excellent opportunities to put into practice our learning. thank you!

(F.L.)

 

Fantastic knowledge and delivery from the trainer! Liked the way the trainer targeted the course for paddlesports.

(E.S.)

 

Great mix of slides, practicals, course material and oral learning.

(A.S.)
