The Wild Native


/media/testimonials/library/doublequotes-66.gif We have been using React First for a many years now. Our employees have done ITC LEVEL 3 Award in Emergency First Aid At Work and our experience has been really good.

Michelle is our contact person at React First and she is always very helpful, we have had a couple of different trainers and they are also very sympathetic, flexible and helpful. Any time we need a First Aid Course we always think about React First. Great service and great team! /media/testimonials/library/doublequotes-99.gif

/media/testimonials/library/doublequotes-66.gifThe University of Birmingham has a program where final year physiotherapy students act as pitchside first aid providers for the elite university teams competing in the BUCS league.

As a top sporting University, there are many national and international athletes who are part of these teams so the welfare services provided for these players has to be professional and of a very high standard  

React First started to provide our the first aid training six years ago to the students and I have found them to be an excellent organisation. Having used a couple of other first aid training organisations previously, the difference in the quality of training provided by React First was evident.

The teaching is enthusiastic and engaging but no compromise is accepted on professional standards and required knowledge. Importantly, they will fail people taking the course if they are not at the required standard.

The sport and exercise science department at the University of Birmingham is consistently ranked in the top 4 sports science departments in the world and thus the quality systems for working with outside organisations is rigorous. The relationship we have developed with React First enable us to trust them to teach in our world leading programmes; we are so pleased with the provision of training, that we are now investigating how some of the other training programs provided by React First may become embedded in the teaching curriculum for the spots science students.

Many students who have done the training have successfully managed serious medical emergencies and the provision they provide to the University teams is highly valued by the coaches and the athletes.

I aim to continue working with React First as the quality of the course provided has consistently remained excellent. In addition, they are also very friendly and well run organisation and communication with them is efficient. I would happily recommend them to any organisation that requires professional delivered high standard first aid training./media/testimonials/library/doublequotes-99.gif

/media/testimonials/library/doublequotes-66.gifWe thought the 1st Aid Training was excellent.  The content was good and it was delivered in such a way that was easy to understand. The equipment was all in good working order. The instructor was friendly but firm. He made people feel relaxed and at ease. Everyone took part, it was fun and informative.

We all filled in an assessment form at the end of the course. Thanks for organising it, Joanna. Definitely a company to recommend./media/testimonials/library/doublequotes-99.gif

/media/testimonials/library/doublequotes-66.gifThe course was fantastic. Jenny (the other one) was brilliant and took the course at a great pace, made it relevant to the coaches and ensured that we all had a full understanding before moving on with different topics. We would recommend her highly! Thanks for your help with organising the course. I will be sure to pass your details to our other members with a recommendation./media/testimonials/library/doublequotes-99.gif

/media/testimonials/library/doublequotes-66.gifThe outdoor first aid course I attended with Joe was the best one I had ever attended, I was a police officer for nearly 40 years so have attended many others. I left yours feeling really confident about dealing with any future first aid incidents./media/testimonials/library/doublequotes-99.gif
