Thank you

Excellent and thorough course.

As an untrained (but semi-experienced) user of chainsaws this course came as a bit of a shock. I had never realized the extent of current legislation, nor had I actually read PUWER 98 – clearly I had a lot of learning to do!

The trainer was excellent, the course facilities were basic but more than adequate. The access to forested area good. First 2 days a little slow while we worked through the basics, but close tutoring and plenty of practical experience leading to a successful assessment (not everyone passed). The documentation and support from Fran at East Malling was really useful.

This course changed my outlook and consideration of safety factors dramatically.

Hi Fran, I just wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed doing the PA1/PA6 course this week and to say how brilliant the trainer has been, he really made the course enjoyable, engaging and made everyone feel relaxed about the examination process, could you please let the trainer know I said thank you very much for all his help this week.

Thank you for the course, it was certainly the best First Aid course I’ve been on, the practicality made it more interesting and as such more memorable. You were also probably the best trainer I’ve had in any of the number of courses I’ve attended, so thank you again.

Adrian Scripps Ltd recently booked East Malling Short Course to run 2 first aid courses at our Farm. This is our first experience of EMSC, we will be using them again.

Fran is very easy to talk to and so organised she did everything for us. The trainer was excellent and all of our 23 staff from different cultures and countries that he trained over the couple of days came away saying they understood and felt confident using the first aid he taught, as well as enjoying the day.

Since First Aid, Fran has been more than helpful in organising some health and safety talks to our staff on our pump trucks. we are also booking some 360 digger training, nothing seems to be too much trouble, give Fran a ring even if the course is not listed, this is what I did and it has been a great success, making my training programme so much easier to manage.

I will definitely book for the winter pruning course.

The whole experience was very good- as a first time visitor; I feel it was a day well spent and very informative.

Good course very well presented.


Wonderful lunch + great facilities/environment

I have just completed my second short course with East Malling and I can’t wait to sign up for another. Thank you for your kindness and professionalism.
