Thank you so much to the team at Tidal Training for the Emergency First Aid Training I received yesterday. As a small... business owner I needed to ensure I had someone in the office who could be on hand should something horrible happen to a staff member. I sent 2 colleagues on the training course last year and both were so glad they learnt the techniques to help. As such I decided I would also like to do this not just for work but incase I could be of assistance anywhere else. The training was fantastic and it gave me a feeling of comfort knowing if someone was to get into an accident or have a stroke/heart attack etc I could be of some help in the interim. I would advise that not only businesses do this course but people at home too who could be there if needed for a loved one or passer by. Thanks so much - Alanread more

I never had a first aid training course before so I was a bit uncertain and anxious as to what to expect. Tidal... Training made everything really simple to follow and to the point. It is always so important to know how to help others and I was glad to finish the course confident enough to do so if needed.read more
