It’s healthy for any organisation to review its procedures regarding the effectiveness of its systems and processes and so we have recently been assessing how and why we use spine boards in the outdoors.
We use Peak Safety to deliver both the first aid components of our Tertiary programmes and all our instructor first aid training and revalidation.
The huge amount of real life experience that Peak Safety have in ski patrol and first aid delivery, not only gives you every confidence in them as educators , but also means they always have an interesting story to tell to back up the learning.
They have a completely flexible approach to how they deliver the course, meaning that the learning needs of their clients is always catered for. The courses are well structured and important topics are revisited multiple times throughout the course which definitely helps with retention.
I have attended many different first aid courses over the years and some have been deadly tedious; certainly not the case for Peak Safety - time spent in the classroom is always broken up with practical tasks and my last 5 day course passed by in a flash.
Some of our students find classroom based learning challenging. Peak Safety have been great over the years at understanding how our students learn and their relaxed and non-threatening approach has allowed the students to succeed and learn effectively. All of Peak Safety’s trainers show patience in their teaching so students always feel that they are able to ask questions or clarify their understanding.
I would recommend Peak Safety courses to anyone who wants hands on learning from people who really know their stuff and want to have a fun and memorable course.
