A really good training course, very professionally presented by Tracy. I’ve been on lots of training courses over the years and too often they can be soporific! Tracy is one of those rare training professionals who can deliver training and keep a person interested all day! Great course. Highly recommended!

Rutland first aid are professional yet kept the courses fun and interactive and use some very interesting props. As a driving instructor I wanted to be able to deal with any issues with my students but also any issues I may come across on the roads. Highly recommended.

Couldn't recommend Tracy and her team enough for a first aid course. Having to renew it every 3 years used to send me to sleep. Not with these guys! Professional, up to date and with lots of toys to play with, without the death by powerpoint.
