After doing thorough research on all the providers and speaking to oppos who have done FPOS. Galahad stood out as the clear winner by miles. For a start they are £100-£150 cheaper than most providers and their facilities are excellent.
This is not a classroom course, after being briefed on something medical you will be straight out into the training area practising and being put under pressure to show you have understood whats been taught.
Everyone who is ex-mil knows that scenario based training is the only training that works, many companies will happily do death by PowerPoint and sit back and take your money. Fair enough you'll have a tick in the box but would you actually be confident at carying out life saving procedures on a client or a team member when it counts??? That is what you have to ask yourself. Im happy to say that after attending Galahads course I'm more than happy and I've also recommended to the maritime company that I work for that all our blokes should go through them, as quite simply they are leading the way.
Jamie and john ran the course like clockwork, I honestly couldn't pick them up on anything. Kit, equipment, scran, training were all hoofin.
If your trying to pick a provider then ill save you the hassle now and tell you these guys are top of the league, your hard earned cash will be well spent here.
