Another Great Review For Our One Day First Aid Training Courses...

By far the most engaging, knowledgeable and interesting first aid training any of us participatns have ever had. Darren is a quality trainer with an impressive array of kit and instructional aids. His knowledge was obvious, yet his humour and charismatic approach kept the training fun and lively. I'd hightly recommend him for your workplace needs

From Minister Tom Bowring following training of the Oakham Baptist Church Youth Team in Paediatric First Aid.

If anyone needs First Aid Training, I can't recommend Darren Hayward's One Day First Aid Course enough; it was thorough, relaxed and even entertaining! Mobility issues were catered for and helped through without any awkwardness and we left feeling that everyone should do it, even just for the CPR training. We also felt much more confident if anybody wants to choke in front of either of us, which is really useful if you spend time with kids... or, well, humans of any kind really! Highly recommend anyone getting on this course!

One Day First Aid Course

A One Day First Aid At Work Training Course Received The Following Comments From Em Goldmark of Goldmark Art in Uppingham...

"Darren is a knowledgeable, engaging First Aid Trainer. He kept the whole group interested and involved for the whole day. Having done a number of one-day courses in the past, I would highly recommend Darren, both for the training itself and for the great value. He also offers a free annual 2 hour refresher, which I’ll definitely be signing up for."

Rearsby Lodge Riding Club is Impressed By Our First Aid At Work Training Specifically For Sports Clubs..

Six Club and Committee members from the Rearsby Lodge Riding Club attended a certificated 3-day First Aid at Work course in February 2022. It was organised and delivered by Darren Hayward of Carer Training Academy.During the initial contact phase, he gave factual information readily and courteously as well as a very competitive quote. Darren was easy, helpful and consistent to communicate with and to make arrangements with.

The three training days flew by. We were extremely impressed with the contents as well as the delivery. Darren was extraordinarily adept at making it interactive and inclusive. As a now retired nurse and health visitor I know that he provided a completely realistic insight into first aid, which was so clearly based on knowledge as well as ‘real life’ practical experience.Darren’s willingness and ability to sensitively adapt the course to our very specific needs within the equestrian world was particularly skilful and incredibly helpful. It also kept us interested, inspired and engaged.

The first aid certificates were emailed and posted to us without delay, and some of us have already been in action.We highly recommend Darren Hayward and Carer Training Academy to any individual, club or organisation (large or small) that is looking to have staff or volunteers trained in first aid.

Thank you so much, Darren!

Exceptional Training...

It was certainly the best First Aid course I’ve ever done, and I thought Darren was exceptional, both in his delivery and the course content. He made it enjoyable learning for us for all 3 days.



Informative & Entertaining..

I found the first aid course to be surprising in that Darren made it entertaining whilst also being thoroughly informative. He coped with the 6 of us very well, bearing in mind we went off on many tangents, usually in relation to our horse experience. I personally feel fairly confident to be put into a first aid situa-tion!

An Excellent Trainer..

I liked the way Darren listened to the examples of the types of accidents we are more likely to come across and adapted his training accordingly.

He also made a rather 'dry' subject interesting and engaged with us throughout the 3 days. An excellent trainer.
