Guys, an excellent one with very professional delivery and content throughout. The real experience of the trainers only served to make the course more enjoyable. The level of banter and humour from the trainers was pitched at exactly the right level. I don't generally warm to 'first aid' courses but I enjoyed every minute of this one. Nice one'

No matter how hard I try to find niggly negatives about the course I simply can't. Derbyshire Stronge (Intl) are not just jumping on the band wagon to churn out as many FPoS certificates as they can. These guys actually have something to offer.
Their professional medical experience spans over two decades and their first hand knowledge and experience is phenomenal. That knowledge is not confined to the theatre of conflict and CP world, but also as current operational Paramedics in major cities.
Their teaching skills are second to none; they bounce off of each other effortlessly. It seems that they are as enthusiastic now as they were all those years ago. That shows in their lessons, no question is too stupid for them. In fact they want you to pick their brains as much as possible.
Learning support provided is very extensive; their tuturing skill is a skill in itself. The instructors will make extra time for you to practise if needed. Not only do they go the extra mile for their students, they run the whole marathon.
If you are serious about passing this course Derbyshire Stronge (Intl) instructors will take the time to ensure that you will just do that, if this means extra time for individuals -in their words 'so be it'.
When it comes to the practical scenarios Derbyshire Stronge (Intl) instructors expect to get thrown about and manhandled by the students. The venue and surroundings make for great scenarios. It beats the hell out of your boring classroom scenarios.
In a nutshell. Derbyshire Stronge (Intl) have thought long and hard about offering the best course possible for the student and I personally think they have succeeded across the board. Not only does this show in the cost, but also their genuine appetite and sincerity to share their knowledge.
If you are looking for a course were you can be yourself, want to learn, and by nature you are inquisitive, these are the guys you are looking for.
Steve H. CP Student N Ireland
I worked closely with David and Derbyshire Stronge International Ltd in the West African Jungle of Liberia. David's professionalism as an expert medical practitioner is second to none. He is completely at ease dealing with medical emergencies, from adults to children with malaria in remote locations with basic equipment. He was also instrumental in bringing health and safety mdical (sic) measures up to speed in a jungle field camp. His treatment of people was outstanding and inspiring when dealing with life and death situations. I cannot recommend David and his company highly enough. A top medical professional who would be a major asset to any company

Med Coy Kosovan Security Force
"Just a quick email to let you know what a pleasure it was meeting and working with Alex Stronge during our mission trip to Brazil. His professionalism, knowledge and 'can do' attitude made my job as security representative for my particular principal much easier. It should be known that along with providing security and medical for our principal, we also found ourselves providing care and security for 20-25 young adults and 8 adults. It was great having Alex there, his knowledge and skills were needed on many occasions. He personally was called upon to handle various situations and was always available and ready to assist wherever needed. Alex was constantly being sought out for advice and assistance and also acted as transportation director and driver.To anyone considering having a medical / security person I commend Alex. Believe me you will rest a lot easier."
