These are fantastic courses led by engaging professionals with real world experience and real world advice. I have done their First Aid in Remote Locations course twice now and could not recommend it highly enough.

I attended the 2 day Paediatric First Aid course last week with my work colleagues.It was a very informative but also fun course. Laura didn’t mind questions at any time and was happy to answer them. I prefer the slightly informal tone of the course as I feel that I learn better that way.Lots of chances to do practical work on dummies and also with our ‘real life’ patient Lucy, who got herself into difficulties.It was a great learning environment with plenty of tea and coffee and the biscuits went down well too!Thank you.

I recently attended a one-day first aid course run by Lazarus Training, and I must say it was an incredibly enjoyable and informative experience. The course focused on first responder first aid and covered the subject matter in great detail, ensuring that all participants left with a comprehensive understanding of essential first aid techniques. What stood out the most was the professionalism of the instructors. They were not only highly knowledgeable but also very approachable, creating an environment where I felt completely comfortable asking any questions I had. This openness significantly enhanced the learning experience, allowing for deeper engagement with the material. The day was filled with hands-on practice and real-world scenarios, which solidified my understanding and boosted my confidence in applying first aid principles. I am extremely grateful for the wealth of knowledge I gained and the practical skills I developed. Overall, I highly recommend Lazarus Training for anyone looking to gain valuable first aid skills in a supportive and professional setting.

Exemplary training provided in a fun way, making it easy to digest and I learned SO much thanks to the visual demonstration approach they use. The fact I retained so much of the information from the last course 4 years ago is testament to their training methods being effective.

I done the paediatric 2 day course, with trainer Laura, and her assistant Sam, they were both very knowledgeable, experienced trainers no questions were too much bother for them both, as I have only ever done a basis first aid course yrs ago, I learnt new things that I never knew and how first aid training has changed over the past 20 yrs, I was very nervous but Laura put me and another girl who was nervous at ease and comfortable.I would recommend lararus training for anyone, I loved hearing her stories from when they have to travel abroad and do training, I found it fascinating and also interesting as well.

I recently attended a Company First Aid course conducted by Lazarus, and I couldn't be more impressed. The instructor's expertise and professionalism were evident throughout the course. The realistic scenarios they arranged provided invaluable hands-on experience, making the learning process engaging and effective.

I recently attended a First Aid at Work course. It was excellent! couldn't fault any part of it. The trainer was brilliant! I have a shocking memory for most things but he delivered the course with huge amounts of energy and clarity. It was explained really well throughout the day and we covered so much more than I thought we would.The first thing I did was buy a well stocked first aid kit for home and in my car. Best part is, I now know how to use it properly.Would highly recommend.

Successfully completed the First Aid Office & Studio Training with Chris. It was a 1 x day course. Chris is brilliant! Very professional, experienced and is a fantastic teacher. It was very thought provoking and I think we should all have a bit of basic knowledge of first aid training. Highly recommend. 👍

I've done several first aid at work training sessions with Lazarus over the years through different employers. Always top notch, with instructors with unparalleled practical experience in the field, who know the latest advice (as these are always evolving) and can answer just about any question you throw at them. Most importantly with first aid - it's practical, with opportunities for hands on practice, not just the theory.I've already put my my first aid training to use in a real life office situation, and I know that these skills may one day save a life. Thanks Chris!

What a fantastic way to teach First Aid in different situations & such an important skill we all need in life! Live-action training in basic first aid & not just practising CPR. It was so much more interesting than information being thrown at someone. Highly recommend Lazarus Training!

The best first aid training I’ve been on! We had Gary and Glen as our trainers and they were absolutely fantastic, so knowledgeable, helpful and just genuinely lovely people. The course itself is very interactive and you get far more information, tips and tricks than other first aid courses. Will definitely be do all my further training with them 😊

I recently had the privilege of attending the First Aid in Office and Studio (FAOS) course conducted by Laura from Lazarus Training Ltd, and I must say it was an incredibly educational experience. The one-day program covered a wide array of crucial first aid topics, leaving me feeling well-prepared and confident in handling emergency situations.The course began with a comprehensive exploration of the 5-step assessment process, providing a systematic approach to evaluating emergency situations. Laura expertly guided us through this process, ensuring that we not only understood the steps but also knew how to apply them in real-life scenarios. The morning session passed by swiftly, thanks to the engaging and informative nature of the content.The afternoon delved into more specific areas, such as CPR techniques and handling various medical conditions. Laura's teaching style was not only informative but also comforting. Her ability to make the class feel at ease created an optimal learning environment, fostering active participation and engagement among the attendees.One highlight of the course was the hands-on experience, particularly the application of a tourniquet. This practical aspect added a valuable dimension to the learning process, allowing us to translate theoretical knowledge into practical skills. While the hands-on time with CPR techniques was beneficial, I would have appreciated even more time dedicated to this critical skill, as it is fundamental in many emergency situations.Post-course, the resources provided were noteworthy. The well-structured notes and the accompanying app proved to be valuable references, eliminating the need for extensive note-taking during the session. This thoughtful approach allowed participants to focus more on absorbing the lesson content and actively participating in discussions.In conclusion, I highly recommend the First Aid in Office and Studio course with Laura from Lazarus Training Ltd. Her expertise, coupled with the well-organized curriculum and hands-on experiences, ensures that participants not only grasp essential first aid concepts but also feel equipped to apply them effectively in real-world scenarios. The course strikes an excellent balance between theory and practice, making it a valuable investment for anyone seeking to enhance their first aid skills.

Lazarus put on a really great course - excellent “life-like” trauma scenarios to test our newly acquired skills, combined with really knowledgeable and engaged trainers (Paul, Laura and Liam). Thank you!

Fantastic course, well worth taking! Thanks to the gents who ran our 2 day course, I was able to apply those skills a few months later and help somebody in need of first aid after a car accident I witnessed. Without them, I wouldn’t have known what to do in that situation and that gentleman may have come out of the accident much worse than he did. Very kind and patient teachers who really taught me some of the most valuable skills I’ll ever learn. Can’t thank them enough.

Recently attended job specific first aid with Mac and Barry. Mac took the majority of the two days and he was really knowledgeable and engaging, using real life examples to explain certain things. Mac was extremely patient with some difficult individuals too and is a credit to you. I would certainly recommend them to others.

We used Lazarus training for our team who were heading out to film in a remote location in Africa this year. Mark, Tim & Karen were absolutely amazing! Very professional in the way they laid out the session and allowed space for serious and light conversion. Definitely recommend Lazarus, their experience in the field is exceptional and they seem genuinely passionate on the topics covered. Thankyou Mark, Tim & Karen from Big Cats!

Recently completed my 2nd first aid training course with Lazarus. I’m a personal trainer and after completing this training course I feel confident that I could deliver emergency first aid with confidence. The trainers are friendly, approachable and very experienced. Over the years I’ve done loads of classroom based training and found it extremely boring … not this training , it’s fun and practical.
