Most of the courses I have been on have been a lot of frantic note taking and a little practical. SkillBase doesn't give you much time or need for scribbling rapidly: it's mostly hands on practice, so it becomes routine. I used to dread the first aid updates too, but these are fun and friendly, and easier to remember. More...

really pleasant and effective. I liked the dash of humour in the training (which is necessary of course) but I also found the Trainer's no non-sense common sense approach both refreshing and thought provoking. I hope I will not need to use this training but if I do have to, I will at least feel a bit better prepared. Thanks Russel and all the best. More...

I would be lying if I didn't say I dread first aid courses ! I have attended so many dull and boring courses over the years ! Skill Base have revolutionised my opinions ,particularly "Sarah George-Pitt " Tutor who delivers the goods in a practical manner ,focusing on important details making them easy to remember. Found Defib practice particularly helpful ,as formerly would have been very intimidating. Thank you More...

The course content was very relevant to what we could encounter in everyday life, it was put over to us in a fun and practical way, and did we leave more confident at the end of the day, YES we certainly did.

WELL DONE....

Not your ordinary First Aid Training provider, SkillBase train with a passion, one of staff recently attended a course. She came back absolutely full of it, passing useful tips. Although she went with a partially closed mind, "I've done these before attitudes". You certainly opened her mind and filled it with inspiration. Thank-you for delivering a first class training course. More...
