Feedback & Testimonials

Happy to recommend

Worked with Abacus for 3 years before moving to new role (Abacus still working with the organisation) and found them excellent partners to work with. Always quick to respond, great training delivery and perhaps most importantly very flexible to allow delivery to staff working 24/7 on 3 different shift systems.

Dez S, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue

Spot on!

Great teaching, great course, very knowledgeable, thanks!

Rebecca P, Five Ways Primary School

Excellent hands on, relaxed approach and all questions answered.

Mike went in to great detail about first aid and was helpful when we asked questions.

Polite and affable without resorting to over tired cliches. More enjoyable than expected.

Very interesting and instructive.

Mike is a great trainer! I’m not English so it was a big challenge for me but Mike was very understanding and patient. High recommendation! Thank you and I hope – see you in a future.

Mike is a friendly and knowledgeable.

[Abacus] have been running First-Aid courses for Scout Leaders in our District for many years. He keeps himself up-to-date and makes the courses interesting with various anecdotes. His knowledge of the various do’s and dont’s in a Scouting environment is particularly useful.

Emma G, Springfield First School

Really useful course which covered all aspects I was expecting to be trained on. Right pace, very useful.

Ian O, Bloom Bars

“Mike is a real people person, we couldn’t catch him out with any questions he didn’t know the answer too over a 5 days intense course, and the open discussions we had over various subjects really bought our course into a real world context. I feel I’ve learned life long skills and will always value what Mike has taught me.”

Chris W, Staffordshire Fire & Rescue

“Our team gained invaluable knowledge from attending this first aid course. Mike delivered it very efficiently and in a lot of detail leaving time for any questions we needed to ask.
