What They Say About Us

Here are a small collection of some of our client reviews that we have gathered.

Hello, my name is Julian Saul and I am Assistant Regional Director for Vocare, a leading organisation of out of hospital urgent care.  I have received firstaidnortheast CPR training in my previous role and found their service (both training and the administration) fantastic.

They are a friendly team and make you at ease with everything they do.  Since moving to my current role, I did look around for competitive quotes with a good level of service and found that firstaidnortheast was still right for me.  Firstaidnortheast have provided our teams with CPR and First Aid at Work training and they are still great.  I would personally recommend giving them a try - - great service and great training.

We have used First Aid North East for many years now to train James Burrell employees. We have always found them to be friendly, passionate, knowledgeable and professional.

From making the initial enquiry through to the training delivery, First Aid North East offered a courteous, flexible and extremely customer orientated service who made planning, payment and attendance a simple and seamless process. Staff returned to the workplace enthusiastic and confident in their newly acquired skills and knowledge and with notable accountability towards safety and first aid in the workplace. Paperwork and certificates were issued with immediate effect, and I was considerately supplied with electronic copies of the documents. It was a pleasure to deal with such an efficient and skilled organisation. As such, I have no hesitation to recommend this company to others, particularly those seeking to make best use of their training budget. This is good quality training and excellent value for money

I instantly felt the company was well organised, this was also proved throughout the course.  All the subject knowledge was good and up to date. We also received first aid booklets, I really enjoyed the course and the company. Some larger companies can be very impersonal, but this company is friendly and cares about First Aid and the students.  I would strongly recommend this company to people wanting to go on first aid courses.
