Absolutely fantastic training course with Flora over the last couple of days! The course was fully adapted to keep everyone safe and sound but still managed to incorporate enough practical elements to keep us all busy and hands on. The info was delivered very well and Flora has so much knowledge and experience that every question or discussion had a clear and concise conclusion. You’ve made the absolute best course possible while keeping everyone safe and comfortable.

BenSki Instructor

Very clear relevant topics, good content, excellent knowledge, very friendly. Very informative and really enjoyed the course – better than previous courses. Clear communication, good resources and excellent kit. Covid considerations made the course feel as safe as possible.

St Bedes School

Intensive but brilliant. I have been on other courses before, but they were not as good and not as focussed on outdoor scenarios. The trainer's paramedic experience really helps because she can describe what might typically happen in a really wide range of scenarios. (Another friend has also raved about this course).


Flora really is excellent. I went to her last week for the second time, a 3 year refresher, because my first experience with her was so good. As it happened, the rest of the group was also already familiar with first aid. It seems to me that Flora reacted by making the course even more challenging, to meet the group better. As a result, I came away miles more confident than I have ever been before. It wasn't a refresher, she took me to another level. A really experienced, smart and fun trainer - I will always seek out Elements.

I can't believe I'm nearly 40 and have never done any first aid training! This course was so valuable, I now feel confident I can help with all manner of first aid needs. The course was delivered in a fun and friendly environment, out in the countryside. Flora was so knowledgeable and explained everything so it was easy to understand and practice. Thank you Flora! I highly recommend Elements First Aid to anyone and everyone.

Just completed a two day course spread over two weekends three weeks apart. It wasn’t my first course, but never had this much fun while learning a heap of new tricks. Casualties, real and fake, help is on the way!

Marie-AnnWalking Leader

Flora was an excellent trainer, very knowledgeable and happy to explain anything that we had additional questions about. The Outdoor First Aid course was brilliant fun as well as useful, we did a lot of scenarios outside where we had to think about how the situation would be impacted by our location as well as by the emergency we were dealing with. When I need to renew my qualification, I'll definitely be booking with Elements First Aid Training again.

MattClimbing Instructor

I attended the 16 hour Outdoor First Aid course and I was absolutely delighted with it. It was a brilliant mix of practical skills and theory so that you were never sitting down and listening for too long. Flora did a superb job of keeping us all engaged and involved. I will definitely book with these guys again when I need to renew my training.

Just completed an Outdoor First Aid Course, really relevant and well structured content, delivered by someone with real credibility. Excellent course and really friendly atmosphere.

KevinMountain Bike Instructor

The Outdoor first aid course was really well targeted to our particular aim (First aid for orienteering coaching) and very interesting with plenty of opportunity to practise skills. Flora was super friendly and experienced so would definitely recommend Elements First Aid training.

FionaOrienteering Coach

That first aid course was part of our ski instructor training in Stubai and was really interesting. Flora is a skillful and experienced frontline medic and the course over 2 days was practical and full of personal stories that made it alive and easy to follow. Highly recommended.
