EFR First Aid at Work Instructor Course, M J First Aid Training, Birmingham (February 2008)  

Congratulations to Charlie and Andy on gaining additional HSE approved Instructor qualifications, they are now able to offer courses like the Great Britain First Aid at Work Course and gain extra work as FAW Assessors.

I found when working with Andy and Charlie that they both are highly experienced in the First Aid Training industry, Andy through scuba diver training and Charlie through educating in schools. It was interesting to see them develop there skills further into workplace environment training, as assessors I highly recommend either if you are looking for a freelance assessor for your first Aid at Work courses.


 

 
Emergency First Response Instructor Course, M J First Aid Training, Birmingham (February 2008) 

Firstly Congratulations go to Darren, Dean, Charlie and Andy on completing their EFR Instructor Course. I speak for everyone when I say a big thank you to Mike Jones (centre owner) for his invaluable assistance; once again I was left taking notes during Mike's marketing presentation.

Everyone brought something special to the course, Charlie already a highly experienced first aid instructor who was crossing over to Emergency First Response Ltd, her actual hands on experience through running training at night clubs and working with schools; educating youngsters added something very special to the course. Emergency First Response is lucky to have Charlie among their Instructors. Andy was definitely the joker of the group whether it was his quick wit or his green jumper to say the least he kept us entertained. Darren and Dean (Brother and Son) of Mike the centre owner, now they are qualified instructors they will help to expand M J First Aid Training not just to be the main training centre in Birmingham, but make it the No 1 centre for the South, UK.

It was a real pleasure working with everyone, I wish you all the best of success and look forward to working with you on future courses.


 
Emergency First Response Instructor Course (EFRI), January 2008 

Firstly thanks and congratulations to all who attended the EFR Instructor Course in summary we had some great positive coaching techniques from Jon and think its fair to say between him and Paul they are the jokers who certainly kept us entertained for the day to say the least. Then we had Tina who "took us back to school" this was an interesting approach and certainly one I will be using in the future. We now know David will be the man making the phone calls and I know I will be keen to hear some more of his marketing advice. It was clear that Craig has some great and very unique ways/ideas on the promoting and managing side of EFR training. I think when it comes down to course preparation and setup Sam and Charley are two ladies who can not be beat.

I certainly know x7 new Emergency First Response Instructors who will be making a huge impact on the First aid training industry, It was a real pleasure working with all, I wish you the best of success and look forward to working with you on future courses.
