I recently completed the IHF- Heart Saver course with Aiden, I found the course very interesting and engaging. Training was provided to a very high standard while adhering to Covid guidelines, which enabled all participants to feel at ease. Aiden facilitated the training in a friendly, approachable manner which encouraged all participants to interact and learn through practical experience.

I needed to do training in order for my partner to be discharged from hospital. I called Aiden and he went above and beyond to help us. He came to my home the very next day. He was professional in his role while also being very sensitive and understanding of our situation. He was reassuring, I felt confident after completing Irish Heart Foundation Training. I would highly recommend Aiden from DSTS.

I recently completed a 3-day First Aid Responder Course with Aiden Thompson as part of a healthcare course. He really knows his stuff!! Aiden is the perfect instructor to be giving this course. He fills every lesson with hands on practical skills demonstrations and real-life scenarios. We covered a wide range of first aid situations. I found the CPR training with the AED defibrillator especially important as this is the skill that I would have been least confident in beforehand. He took that fear away for me!
Aiden has a great way of engaging everyone too, when teaching the theory. Instead of just reading it from a book or from a screen, Aiden delivers the course by sharing his vast array of knowledge and using many of his own real-life experiences as a paramedic. You really will come away feeling much more knowledgeable and confident in responding to someone in that first stage of their emergency! Thanks Aiden!

Aiden Thompson recently ran a Rugby Specific First Aid & Concussion Course for our coaches and committee members. As always, the course was very professionally run. The course provided a lot of in-depth knowledge of first-aid practices, injury treatment, CPR, defibrillation, spinal injuries, head injuries, and concussion. We would highly recommend Aiden to provide first aid training modules to any sports club

I have done multiple First Aid Training Courses in the last 10 years, the one I completed recently with Aiden is the most engaging one I have completed yet. Aiden delivered top quality content, and made it relevant for the different sports coaches on the course. Aiden also advised me about the necessary contents needed for a new First Aid kit for my fitness facility. I cannot recommend him enough

Aiden Thompson from Donegal Safety Training Solutions (www.dsts.ie) provided 1st Aid Training to five of my beef discussions groups. Aiden’s years of experience shone through and my clients quickly relaxed and got involved in the practical demonstrations. Aiden made the course very enjoyable and practical and I’ve had nothing but positive feedback from my clients.

So in summary I would highly recommend Aiden and Donegal Safety Training Solutions.

Aiden has been delivering various First Aid courses to our Transition Year students for many years. The courses have been highly interactive and very engaging, always stimulating a high level of interest in the students. Aiden is always extremely professional and has a good understanding of the dynamic in a second level classroom. I cannot recommend him or his courses highly enough.

Aiden Thompson of Donegal Safety Training Solutions delivered a First Aid Responder (FAR) Course to our Early Childhood Care and Education QQI level 5 students last December 2019.

The students were very happy with the delivery of the course which was given in a very professional and practical manner. Aiden interacted well with the students and they were immediately put at ease as some were apprehensive about doing it. The Certificates were delivered promptly and every one of them obtained certification. Finn Valley College would have no hesitation in employing the services of this organization again as it was delivered without any fuss or inconvenience to the school.

Aidan Thompson Conducted First Aid Training for the staff and Volunteers of the Bluestack Special Needs Foundation in June 2019. Aidan brings a level of professionalism, knowledge and great entertainment that enabled all to learn while having fun. The overriding feedback from the staff and the volunteers was that they learned more in the few hours about first aid and general life skills than they had done in years. They felt that Aidan was totally approachable, explained everything really clearly and gave excellent examples to really help all understand the risks and protection measures necessary particularly when dealing with young children and more importantly children with disabilities. We are extremely grateful to Aidan and have him booked again to do Manual Handling for him. This is going to be a regular event in our training calendar.

The Transition Year Programme at St Columba’s College we feel is second to none and as a result we are forever looking for valuable and meaningful opportunities for our students to explore.

That certainly has been our experience with Aiden in his delivery of First Aid training to all 96 students. Students were entirely engaged with all aspects of the workshops, incorporating practical and theory based elements and delivered throughout in a very professional and efficient manner. As Transition Year coordinator I know this to be true as many students in their end of year review said the workshops were the highlight of the year for them, saying they had left same with skills and knowledge that could potentially be life changing and life saving.

We look forward to welcoming Aiden back to the College in the incoming academic year to once again share his knowledge and skills with the Transition Year group of 2020/21.

Aiden provided our Club with First Aid support at our 2018 annual cycling sportive. We were extremely impressed by his professionalism and the quality of care provided especially to one participant who had a nasty fall. Highly recommended and we will definitely be using him again.

I attended the Infant and Child first aid course recently with Aiden Thompson. It was easily the best and most enjoyable first aid course I have ever attended. Everyone got loads of time with the practical elements of the course and Aiden made sure that everyone was happy with all the different stages before he moved on. I would highly recommend Aiden and his company for all first aid courses.
