I took part in a 2 day Outdoor First Aid course with ATNE in November 2017. This was my 4th first aid course but the first time I had gone with ATNE, and they are a breath of fresh air. They have the ability to turn a mundane topic into something exciting and fun. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found the stories and anecdotes very useful in helping me remember the course content. Jon and Caroline both made me feel welcome and created a positive learning environment for the whole class. I would highly recommend them for the first aid course but have no doubt that the same level of professional competency is instilled in all their courses.
