Our Complaints Procedure

We are very proud that in 15 years of training first aid we have never had any complaints and hopefully we will keep it this way.
However, if you are unhappy about any aspect of our services we would definitely rather hear about it so please use the information below to get in touch.
We are always looking to improve our service so if you have any feedback you wish to share, please ensure you let us know.

Contact Us

We take all complaints seriously and are committed to providing a professional, effective, and courteous training service to all our customers and training delegates. We appreciate though, that on occasion there may be a reason for complaint. If you are dissatisfied with any of our courses or Trainers, we want you to tell us. This will allow us to resolve your complaint, and try to ensure it does not happen again.

If you wish to make a complaint please follow the following procedure.. All our staff receives guidance on how to handle complaints.

How do I make my complaint?

You may be able to resolve your complaint by taking it up immediately with the individual trainer concerned, or by calling First Aid Bristol on 0117 244 3563.

What will happen next?

We will respond in writing, within 5 working days of receiving your complaint.

Training Evaluation and Feedback

One of the best ways we can continue to improve our service is by training evaluation, listening to, and responding to our customer views. We hope that there will not be cause for complaint, but if there is, we promise to act promptly to get early resolution. Our aim is to learn from any complaints, and improve the effectiveness of our courses and training techniques. Please also take the time to tell us when we get it right. If there is any specific part of our training course, course materials, Instruction techniques or Instructor that you found particularly effective, please let us know so that we can maintain our good practices.
