Paediatric First Aid Training

I contacted Barry initially to enquire about booking a blended Paediatric first aid course for my pre-school team, the team from the Out of School Club on the site we are based and for some colleagues at other local pre-schools. From the start Barry was very professional and was able to answer all my questions and i was confident that it was the right course for us. We all had to complete the online part of the training prior to the practical day which was great as it enabled you to dip in and out when we had a few spare minutes which meant we could fit around work and family life.
The practical day was very well organised and Barry and Hannah made everyone feel relaxed and confident throughout. Barry had a very good raport with the group and his professional but relaxed manner meant that everyone enjoyed the practical training and learnt a lot. Everyone came away feeling that their skills had been refreshed and much more confident with dealing with any incidents that may arise in our workplaces.
I would highly recommend Training 999.
Thank you Barry and Hannah and we look forward to more training in the future.

Super engaging training!

We have used Barry twice for the 3 day first aid at work training and we couldn’t be happier! He is super engaging and makes learning fun. Barry was also conscious that some of the situations/ scenarios might have been experienced in real lift by participants and gave plenty of time for people to reflect and to digest what they had learnt. We have all enjoyed the training and he helped build confidence, so we all feel comfortable that when/if a situation arises we will be fully prepared. Most people had previous first aid training but all have expressed that this was above and beyond anything they had been taught before.

We also did an additional element on Catastrophic Haemorrhage and this blew our minds. I think everyone should have this training, not just for the workplace but for day to day life and it can extremely useful to anyone.

We will be using Training 999 again and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for first aid training.

Thank you Barry for the amazing training and the ongoing support.

Barry has a great style of delivery of the first aid course. He keeps it lighthearted whilst also showing the seriousness of situations and teaching the skills and knowledge deal with them.

Paediatric First Aid Training

Barry has been delivering Paediatric First Aid training to our setting for many years. We really enjoy his style of training. He is very engaging and manages to keep everyone’s attention, getting the seriousness of the course content across in a fun manner, by adding a bit of humour into it along the way.
Barry goes out of his way to offer flexibility with when he can deliver the training to fit in around our settings needs, and aims to offer competitive prices in line with what other training providers charge.
I highly recommend Barry, and we will certainly be booking him again for any future training.

Engaging and informative

As a Nursery manager I have booked two courses with Barry, and we have completed the first and are looking forward to the second. Barry was a pleasure to deal with from an administrative point of view, and staff who attended the course gave me the following comments to pass back:

An informative and enjoyable course. Barry kept us engaged in the topics with some personal stories and great techniques to remember important information.

Barry has just completed a three day first aid course with us. I am very pleased to say how well it went. We all feel a lot more confident, if we were needed to deal with a serious situation at work. Barry is a very friendly and approachable person. Which made the training an enjoyable experience. Therefore taking in all the valuable information. I would definitely recommend Barry and his first aid course.

Courses are delivered in a light hearted, professional and clear manner.

The courses are delivered with a good balance of theory and practical elements in a way to support the learning styles of all participants, and regularly revising the details to ensure all learners are taking in the information at a level that they understand. There is a clear knowledge and experience of the field and this is delivered in a professional manner with opportunities for learners to ask questions, be active learners and practice first aid skills.

A highly informative yet interesting course delivered in a way other courses struggle to do – fun!

Cannot rate this course more highly; Barry was thorough, concise and friendly. Everything was explained fully, reinforced effectively and therefore retained successfully. This is the second time we have enlisted the help of Barry and The First Aid Kit and it will be by no means the last. We would like to take this time to say a big thank you.
