The best

Where do I start ,from start to finish I was so engaged in the training I have been to so many courses where I listen and when I get out don’t remember a thing but with Geoff it was completely different he had a professional manner and draws you into learning with his personality ,I will pass that knowledge on to family and friends and that means more lives can be saved!!!thank you Geoff sad my course is over but have taken so much from it .


This was the best first aid training I’ve been to- Geoff is such a lovely guy- he made everyone feel so comfortable. His teaching approach is amazing- makes everything so easy to learn. I would highly highly recommend this company!!

Fantastic course!

I did 2 days of Paediatric First Aid Training with Geoff with work. Geoff was a great trainer, giving plenty of time to answer questions, doing demonstrations, giving us lots of opportunities to practise and discuss. The course content was great-giving lots of real life examples and allowing us to practise and discuss what we would do if faced with these situations. I would definitely recommend the course! I came home and taught my 10 year old and 4 year old what to do if they see some choke and how to open someone’s airways and put them in the recovery position. Thanks Geoff!

5 stars!

I just wanted to add 5 stars to my testimonial.

The best Paediatric First Aid I have ever attended.

This is the best ever Paediatric First Aid Training! It is so well prepered and taught. The strategies of teaching are amazing and make learning very interesting. You just want to know more and more! You want to come back because you know you will learn and enjoy training at the same time. I feel very confident in regards to my knowledge and skills that I have gained at this training. It was my second training with Jeff and I am looking forward to refresh and update my skills and knowledge in 3 years time. Thank you to all people involved for making this training so interesting and enjoyable.

The best firs aid course in the world

I have attended Jeff course for the last 6 years and before that when they were with Merton council.i can honestly say they are wonderful interesting and give True honest instruction we all ways have fun and enjoy the course I will never use anyone else

Informative and interesting

This is the third course I attended with Actual First Aid. Their trainers are knowledgeable, helpful and understanding. They give you plenty of time to practice procedures on your own and mentor you as you do so. I would highly recommend them and that everyone participates in their courses.

I have attended many first aid courses, but this first aid course was very different. Using your own experiences and listening to others,just made sense as to what a person needs to do to try and save someones life, if ever the need arises. Geoff you were brilliant.

incredibly informative wirh practical elements, great approach to first aid training, will be recommending to my school setting for parent first aid training

Geoff is a excellent instructor and also very caring. Would recommend his course to everyone

Very informative and practical and a brilliant fresh approach to first aid that I highly recommend.

Amazing First Aid Course

I recently attended a first aid Course with Geoff at Bailiffscourt Hotel. On the first day all I was thinking about on the Journey down was OMG I can't be bothered with another Boring First Aid Course where we are going to be staring at Powerpoints and reading text Books all day. But I was completely wrong. We would watch a realistic video for each subject and then Geoff would ask us to demonstrate as a group what we would do. Not only was this more interesting but it was a great way to interact with people that we haven't met before plus for me personally everything sunk in because we were doing practical scenarios and not just reading books.

Me personally I think Geoff was the best First Aid teacher I've ever experienced. He was so relaxed and chilled, Came up with some amazing stories that he had to experience himself plus he cared about every single person in the room. I really do hope we get him again in 3 Years time for our refresher course.

Best First Aid course

I recently attended a three day training course for the Hotel chain I work for. Previously I have worked as cabin crew and so had what I considered to be a wealth of knowledge when it came to first aid - I was wrong! Geoff really was an incredible teacher, gone were the text books and power points that make you wish the day was over and instead he taught us using a mixture of engaging stories and realistic videos. I’ve never been on a course I found this engaging and I’ve honestly stepped away from it not only feeling more confident than I ever have with any previous training, but actually a bit gutted it’s over! Very interesting and incredibly helpful, I highly recommend Actual First Aid to anyone wanting practical and useable knowledge of first aid.

I was invited from my son's nursery to receive Actual First Aid training , and I was amazed by Geoff McKay training , he explained everything with very well and got us to simulate which was so helpful to actually understand and know exactly what to do on an emergency. Most of us take our life for granted and don't know how important it is to have this knowledge mostly when you are a parent . I strongly recommend Geoff training and Actual first aid training.

Usually I dont leave reviews! But this time I had to let people know about amazing instructor Geoff Mckay! He made the course so fun and understandable the time went so fast i wish it was longer! Me my self i hate studying I find it boring lol!! This guy made the session in such a fun and friendly manner! I found out so many things that will help me in life! Thank you so much! I definitely recomend him! This is how instructors have to be to help you learn something!

Great first aid advice , do recommend , thanks a lot to Geoff McKay for the first aid training

I attended first aid training for the first time in my life, It was thought by Geoff McKay for two days (18/5/19 and 25/5/19). It was well worth it, as I have always think is of no use to me.It was an eye opener to me. I really enjoyed the training and I have learnt so much that I now teach every one around me. Well done to the trainer for making every one have a go and making sure we all do it right.Is a knowledge I will cherish for ever, thanks so much.
