I attended the blended 16hr course to obtain my Outdoor First aid certificate. Jenny’s style is engaging and underpinned by her own real-world experience which I found both reassuring and engaging. She was able to dispense advice using first-hand accounts as well as delivering what the course syllabus requires for the qualification. The blended part of the course was useful as I was able to listen to other experiences from people who were in the practical session renewing qualifications that weren’t necessarily outdoor related. I would definitely recommend Jenny.

Jenny has been delivering outstanding first aid training to my nursery for many years now. The bridge first aid educates the staff with a blended online and in classroom learning. Jenny’s understanding a passion for teaching others these lifesaving skills really inspires each one of her learners.We highly recommend The Bridge, thank you Jenny!

If you want a course that will give you the confidence to act in emergency this is for you. Not only will Jenny give you the tools to deal with a first aid situation, but most importantly for everyone, the determination to try. Gary

I thoroughly enjoyed this first aid course. Jenny made the day really interesting and engaging and gave us all lots to think about. I loved how relaxed and approachable Jenny was, throughout the day and how she included relevance to horses and dogs! too! All really useful and incredibly valuable information relevant to my work. A really interesting day which I can highly recommend. Thank you so much.
