"I enjoyed the course. Charlie was fantastic. It was by far the best first aid course I have ever been on in 25 years of teaching, in which I did first aid and also lifeguard courses every 2 years. I liked it because it was very practical and so we actually felt we had a bit of experience and had made our mistakes when practising and hopefully not in a real incident. Also we didn't have loads of time spent on powerpoint presentations but Charlie did show some useful photos of injuries. I really feel the children and staff around me will be safer because I feel a lot more competent and confident."

"The Year 6 children at Kew Green have covered the First Aid Course with React First for two years. This has been a successful day, the children developing a greater awareness of their well being and how they can strive to make a positive contribution to others including their peers. The course is well structured offering support to all the children. React First will be coming back next year to continue ensuring the children leave Kew Green Preparatory School with knowledge of basic first aid."

"I work outside the classroom with my students a great deal: whether its in the school garden or on school trips. This course has increased my confidence to prepare against and deal with emergencies that may occur in these scenarios. Highly recommended."

"Having read through the testimonials on your website, I can only agree with the comments made. As a regular pitch-side mother, and a practicing paediatrician, I feel duty-bound to attend to any first-aid situation. However, no matter how in-depth one''s medical experience is within a hospital setting, it is very hard to feel prepared when out of the hospital comfort-zone, and away from your team and advanced equipment.I feel that by attending your course I have acquired the capability to make immediate first-aid decisions and have consolidated my existing knowledge with a fantastic new set of skills.I feel much more prepared for the new rugby season and feel able to respond to any number of potential injuries thanks to your ALS-style teaching and scenario practicals.I would, and will, strongly recommend any of my hospital colleagues to attend your course if they are spending time watching or coaching their sporting children as I have no doubt that many of them are volunteered as ''the doctor'' without having the necessary Incident management training behind them."

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the excellent Paediatric First Aid training you gave us last week.I have had so many comments from the staff about the day; how enjoyable it was, how much they learnt and how useful it was. The repetative element, building up of the skills gradually, has really stuck in people''s minds, particularly the ''STOP. ASSESS'' (combined with the hands out!)It was also lovely to be spoken to as intelligent adults; so many trainers pitch this wrongly.Thanks again for an enjoyable and informative day."
