What Our Clients Say

“Absolutely recommend Doug and Oakley Services. Doug recently came and delivered a hybrid First Aid Course for us here at JPS.  Doug made the course very relevant and helped deal with the nerves in the team and we shared some laughs along the way.  A must for all companies.”

Sue Kerr, People & Development Director, JPS

“Thank you for the great 3-day training session. It was very informative, very well presented, plus enjoyable, I’ve never laughed so much during a course before you truly are a fabulous trainer.

I’m pleased that I put myself forward for this course, it has now given me confidence ‎in dealing with any situation that may occur and not just in the work place. Only this evening on my way home there was a 5 car accident on the A27, thankfully paramedics were onsite if not then I would have been happy to stop and provide assistance.

Please also pass on our thanks to Sue and John. John came across with a calm manner which helped greatly when the we all felt nervous. Sue was amazing, played a great casualty and pulled off the blue lipstick quite well I think :o)”

An Insurance Provider, in Brighton.

“The course was really informative – hands down the best First Aid course I’ve done. It will definitely make me write more details on forms and I will also take longer checking things that are or may be more minor”

“A genuinely fantastic course. Made First Aid invaluable. The most detailed and relevant First Aid course I have ever been on”

A Children’s Nursery, in Basingstoke.

“Thanks so much for the environment and atmosphere you set for my 17th edition exam. You were polite, efficient and professional while setting a relaxing calm atmosphere. Many thanks.”

David Farrell, JCE Renovations Ltd.

“Feedback from all nine of the first aiders that have just had their refresher training has been excellent.  ALL have said it was the most enjoyable and informative first aid training that they have received.  Top marks to whoever selected Oakley as the providers.”

H&S Manager, Newcastle upon Tyne.

“Doug provided a very detailed course filled with personal experiences in the time available and with excellent practical demonstrations.”

Charles Shelton, Managing Director.

“I have recently completed a First Aid at Work course with Doug and Oakley Services. I thought it was outstanding, it was clear that Doug and his colleagues have heaps of experience and knowledge. Doug made the course as practical as possible using realistic injuries and making me think on my feet. i would recommend Oakley Services to anyone looking to do First Aid at Work training in the future.”

Jordan Slaney,  PPC Executive, DecisionTech.

“I recently attended Community First Aid training and Doug was running the course. I found his style easy going and helpful, especially when we were tackling CPR! His knowledge of the subject is fantastic and he really made what could be a dry and intense subject, enjoyable and a pleasure to learn. For any of you who have been put off learning First Aid, then I suggest you try one of Doug’s courses – it will certainly change your mind, and I certainly feel more confident if I had to be called upon to help someone in distress.”

Sue Kerr, HR Director. 

“I just wanted to drop you a quick note to pass on a few of the excellent comments we have received from staff taking part in the recent First Aid training and refresher courses you’ve delivered over recent months. You’ve more than exceeded our expectations and as recently stated, I’d have no problems in recommending your services to other organisations.

The general consensus is that all the courses to date have all been well constructed, are really informative and delivered by excellent tutors who clearly know their stuff and get it across in an engaging manner. The realistic injury simulations in particular have been really positively received and as you stated not only enhance the training but really help boost confidence and better equip our people to tackle actual injuries, should they ever be placed in that position.

I’d also personally like to thank you for the time and effort you personally put in to help us develop and organise these courses to meet our statutory requirements. You’ve already helped make a significant impact on our business and I look forward to broadening our staff training programme in the months to come.”

Mrs Jacqui Turley, Learning & Development Manager, Stannah.

“My colleagues have a better chance of survival in my hands after this course with Oakley Services.  Ten times better than other training providers.”

Lee Bushell, Stannah.

“I wanted to pass onto you the excellent feedback I have received from our staff who attended the recent H & S First Aid related training you deliver for us.   As has always been our experience with Oakley Services, the training was outstanding.  Your trainers demonstrate their considerable skills and knowledge in a fun but professional style, equipping our staff with the ability to deal with issues more assuredly and confidently.

Your consultancy services provide first rate support to our business allowing us to meet our compliance requirements in a pragmatic and sensible manner.

The level of support and service we receive from you personally, and as an organisation, has ensured that our business relationship has grown to reflect the trust and confidence we have in using Oakley Services as a business partner.

I would like to again express our satisfaction with the quality and consistency of the training and consultancy you have assisted us with and look forward to our continued association in our business development.”

Alexander Dennis, Chassis Group.

The importance of learning basic First Aid skills and life saving techniques.

We recently received an email from the manager of a children’s play centre about how staff had managed to save a life of a three-year old boy. The boy had an unknown condition and stopped breathing whilst playing, but thankfully the staff had been trained in CPR and managed to get him breathing again before the emergency services arrived. The staff at the play centre said that they all felt confident with their training & ability and the skills they learned from Oakley Services, which proved invaluable to them & the parents of the little boy too!
