  • At all times in my dealings with Links Training, Lesley has been extremely easy to work with, nothing has been too much trouble, and their level of training has been first rate.




  • I would like to thank you and your team for last evening's training. Once again Roger was his excellent self and made the time fly by. Warren was full of useful information and very professional. As a health & safety manager I attend a lot of courses and do not particularly like doing them in the evening but your team made it more than bearable.

  • I thought the course was excellent. The instructor was the best I’ve had yet, and I can honestly say now it all makes so much sense and I’m 2000% confident that should I encounter a situation where my first aid knowledge is required I will have no trouble providing it. Everyone I spoke to said they were pleased someone could make an otherwise rather unexciting topic actually rather interesting and clear.

  • I thought the instructor was brilliant, the way she ran the training was professional, fun and informative. She related to all the attendees and put up with our jokes and had a couple of good ones herself.
    I was impressed how she supported those struggling with some of the concepts and practical requirements and also recognising if they were still struggling, then would take them into another room as though not to embarrass them and then come back and complete the tasks successfully in front of the group. A great skill indeed. I would recommend Links Training to anyone looking for training in First Aid.

  • Your instructor was really good. He had a great instructing persona and was able to cater to all the different capabilities of the class. Well impressed and enjoyed what could have been a boring class.

  • We have used Links Training for all our First Aid requirements and re-validation course for many years. We find the staff knowledgeable, up to date with all changes and our staff really enjoy their participation in the course. We use it as a team building evening and have a shared dinner during the training which helps lift all our spirits. Very happy to recommend them to other schools who wish to keep their staff with a valid First Aid Certificate

  • On behalf of the cancer Society Central Districts Division our thanks and sincerest appreciation to our wonderful trainer on the day. We all found him incredibly enlightening and gave a new meaning to First Aid training as I have known it. We were kept engaged and found a joy to participate to the very end of the day.

    Many thanks Sheryll


  • We have found Links Training Ltd to be extremely flexible given our needs, they have accommodated those needs in a manner that has both worked well for staff and has decreased some of the stresses for staff who are working full time and training. The delivery of the training has been relevant, interactive and supportive for staff. With a staff of 70, many are at different skill and qualification levels and Links Training has managed this in a very professional, proactive and positive manner.
