“The course ticked all of the relevant boxes, however I feel that more practical time would have been a benefit, as some areas such as bleeds and burns were rushed over without knowing what we physically should do.”
“trainer and content were excellent but the seating on the classroom was unsuitable and detracted from the learning experience. they were chairs more suited to lunch or short event, not all day studying. I took a chair from the lounge area on day two, which had been removed overnight and I had to replace it the next day. other students felt the same but didn't feel strongly enough to complain.”
“I am still waiting for my certification to come through.
I felt let down as the joining notes for the course in Birmingham stated that a laptop was not really needed but In reality is essential as a lot of the prep for the microteach presentation is computer based and the microteach itself uses powerpoint.”
“I enjoyed this training and feel the practical part very helpful. My only issues were that as the paediatric training was combined with the adult first aid at work training the instructor did not cover much of the paediatric side of the course and as I work with a young baby I had to keep asking for relevant information e.g baby recovery position and dealing with a choking baby”
“The training on the second day was very good and informative; however I didn't think the e-learning aspect was very good, the videos weren't very useful and I couldn't hear anything over the music - the videos also say that their not intended for training purposes? The content was good however I feel I didn't cover as much detail as I have in previous Paediatric courses”
“I found that the teacher had good knowledge but was quite intimidating in his manners and jokes. Jokes about the skirt of a lady, touched a boys bum while he was lying down helping with an example. Because the course is basically practical, a teacher should make everyone feel comfortable and he came across arrogant and invasive
, and there we were all adults.”
“For me, the Tutor was not very credible. He spent too much time wanting to talk about himself & what ever was being discussed always came back to him. If you actually believe everything he says he has done, he would need to be 200 years old to fit it all in. The venue was fine & the confirmation regarding my assignments was very quick. First time I have actually been on a 3 day course though with no lunch provided.”
