First Aid Courses in Wiltshire

The most engaging, interesting, relevant and dynamic first aid courses in Wiltshire - GUARANTEED!

The Wiltshire outdoor learning team's outdoor first aid course was a brilliant two days of fun filled learning. It's backdrop of Brokerswood made all the scenarios realistic to the potential real life situations that I personally might come across in a canoeing environment. The team was really energetic and supportive, I would highly recommend the course and any courses run by the Wolt! Hannah Brown, World Champion Kayaker, Dec 16

The group contained a vast range of experience and was aged 19 - 60+. Every single one of them came away saying it was the best one they had ever done and more importantly that they now felt genuinely confident in themselves about First Aid compared to other courses where they came away thinking the whole thing was impossible. E Evans, St Lawrence School, Dec 16

I've been on a few First Aid courses which were classroom-based, boring, expensive and impractical. This course was the complete opposite! ... an interesting, brilliantly presented and great-value course which we would highly recommend. Marianne Harkins, Bath University Feb 16

Thanks very much Darren. The scenarios definitely made it - the most engaging first aid training I've been to. We really enjoyed (as you might have been able to tell!) creating our real life troublesome teenage casualties! Tessa Woodrow - Youth Adventure Trust - May 14

Excellent instructors.  Brilliant practials. Best first aid course I have been to so far! David Hawkins - Hardenuish school - Dec 14

The BEST first aid course I have ever attended. Very professional and excellent. Dec 14

I have been doing these courses for 25+ years. This was the best course I have attended and I actually enjoyed it which in the past it has always been a bit of a chore. Feb 15

The best first aid course I've been on.  refreshing approach to first aid training through use of realistic scenarios. D O'C - Kingdown School Oct 15
