I can't thank Ricky enough for this First Aid training which became real-life when my 17 year old son took an overdose in September 2018. My training came back to me as I had to perform CPR on him twice before the paramedics arrived.

If it hadn't been for my training with Ricky at Direct Training GB Ltd I probably wouldn't have known what to do.

I am so lucky this was a happy ending.


I attended a fantastic Emergency First Aid at Work Course with Ricky recently. The training was very professional, the information was well presented and the theory was clearly demonstrated. I really enjoyed the whole day and Ricky made the course fun to learn too. I feel much more confident should I ever need to use it. Thank you Ricky.

Attended Direct Training in December for a First Aid at Work course. The 3 day course run by Ricky was great. His charismatic and enthusiastic approach coupled with his years of knowledge kept everybody fully engaged throughout. We currently send all our staff to Direct Training and will continue to do so in the future. Thanks again to Ricky and Direct Training.

We are a small company, directly employing all of our workers and firmly believe that our success lies in having a fully trained, multiskilled workforce. The costs of achieving the training levels required by the companies that we work for however, are substantial.
We have found Direct Training Ltd to be reasonably priced and our workers report that the courses received through Direct Training have been interesting and easily understood. We have found the team at Direct Training to be very helpful and friendly, they have helped us to get our training done at times which best suit our schedules, and the paperwork is also stress free!
We started 2016 with a workforce that is fully trained; and would like to thank Direct Training for their help in achieving and maintaining this goal.
We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the services of Direct Training Ltd to others.

Jill Tinker, Beighton Construction Ltd

'I would highly recommend Direct Training for your training needs. We recently sent our operatives and office staff on a first aid course and we were all impressed with the professionalism and quality of the training. The instructor Ricky, was very passionate about the training and the course was very informative. The instructions given were clear and easy to follow and Ricky was fantastic at presenting the information in a way we all understood. It has given both myself and the other staff who attended the confidence to feel we could react now in a situation where first aid may be required on whatever level.
