What our clients say...
 camar testimonial

As a Learning & Development Advisor with Carmarthenshire County Council  I have known Rebecca in a business capacity through working together for over five years to co-ordinate First Aid Training for Carmarthenshire County Council via her company First Rate Training.
 I have always found Rebecca to be helpful and positive when dealing with what can be quite complex arrangements when trying to organise multiple training courses across a wide geographical area such is Carmarthenshire.
 We have also worked more closely to put together a range of bespoke training courses for schools and social care staff and her positive attitude, willingness to innovate, attention to detail  and knowledge of her business ensured that we have always received training that met our very specific needs. I have found that one of Rebecca’s greatest strengths is how she deals with problems that are usually outside of her immediate control. Her calm, considered approach and her way with people has been key to resolving these problems with minimum fuss.
 Although I deal with a number of external training providers, the friendly and  efficient service I have always had from Rebecca is the key reason I prefer to deal with her company.

 newport county

Access Managed Services (Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council) work in close partnership with First Rate Training. As such, I have been able to use the First Aid training services of First Rate Training to train the Catering workforce. In particular I work closely with Rebecca Morris who is incredibly helpful and reliable.
The feedback that I have received in relation to the trainers from my Catering & Cleaning Staff who have attended First Aid training has been excellent. So far, over 150 staff have attended First Aid training in the last three years. I hope that many more will continue to benefit from the services provided by First Rate Training in the future.

Just a line to say that First Rate have been very reliable and provided us with tutors with an excellent manner & understanding of students’ learning needs. Also, back-up (procedure, issue of documentation & follow-up support) has been great.

We would like to thank the team at First Rate Training for all their help in providing a bespoke Fire Warden Course to suit all the companies' needs for all our different sites within Wales. The feedback we have had from our employees regarding the Trainers and course content is outstanding! They really made our employees feel at ease within such an important role and developed their skills and awareness within the Fire Warden role.

We were very pleased with the service we received; we found that the knowledge and expertise of the subject was at an excellent level. The style of delivery catered for individuals with a range of learning styles, there was a good mix of theoretical and practical exercises which ensured a very enjoyable and effective learning outcome. Problems were approached in a very professional and calm manner and nothing was too much trouble. We very much look forward to having them back again soon.

 gly testimonial 

Our organisation has used First Rate Training to deliver training courses to our community members on a number of occasions now and I have been thoroughly happy with the quality of courses. The evaluation process I have conducted with our course attendees have consistently come back with high marks and positive comments for the courses delivered.

I have found the course facilitators knowledgeable, friendly and flexible in their approach with the ability to adapt their delivery style according to the needs of the learning group they are addressing.

I am happy to continue using First Rate Training and have recommended others do so too.

gate testimonial

First Rate Training certainly live up to their name! In addition to their first aid courses, which are always excellent, they have also provided us with a health and safety course tailored to our office environment. Lee is a great trainer, keeps the audience interested and above all ensures that everyone leaves the course with an increased level of knowledge and confidence in the subject. The rest of the team at First Rate are always very helpful and approachable and you really get the impression that nothing is ever too much trouble. We will be using First Rate again in the future!

I highly recommend First Rate Training, they have provided ABC Electrification with a package of bespoke first aid training courses.
Having met with Justin Jones and Lee Peters and discussed our specific requirements based on the hazards presented by the rail industry, First Rate Training were able to develop modules of 3 hour duration covering topics such as the use of tourniquet, catastrophic bleeding, defibrillation to name but a few. The shorter than normal sessions meant that attendees were able to carry out the majority of their normal duties causing minimal disruption. Feedback from attendees was excellent: ‘My skills will be improved vastly’, ‘Lee excellent as always’ ‘I haven’t had tourniquet training before and feel this is essential when we work in isolated areas off road, where emergency services would take some time to respond’.
I would also add that a great rapport was developed between the trainer (Lee Peters) and the first aiders, they felt able to ask questions throughout to enhance their knowledge of first aid.
