What our customers say

 “Life Saving Training provided a sport specific first aid course at our gym facility. The course was well ran, informative and hugely beneficial to myself and the members of staff. We are now much better prepared to serve our customer base in a first aid situation. Highly recommended!”

Jamie W, CrossFit Northumbria

“I'm a Fitness Instructor, personal trainer and Assistant Manager of a reputable Leisure Club, I did a sports specific training course with Life Saving Training. I've been on quite a few first aid training courses and this one is by far the best. The amount of information that was delivered far exceeded what I have previously experienced in first aid courses. The stand out thing for myself was the delivery of this information and practical work that coincided with it. The theory was also made more manageable via the use of visual aids and relating the information to a real life situation to try and give the information a more tactile feel. The timing and type of practical work was brilliant and delivered with real confidence reaffirmed the information we were learning. Lastly the the way the course had be tailored for my industry was extremely helpful as it targeted situations that are most likely to occur in my line of work. The content, delivery and structure of the day meant that I walked away feeling I had really learnt something and could be effective in a life saving situation.” 

Robert F, Athlete Lab, London
