What Our Clients and Learners Are Saying About Us
I’ve done at least 8 different first aid courses over the last 18 years in childcare, and this was easily the best by a long shot. Paul was entertaining and straight to the point. I will definitely be booking Cognet next time we have any training requirements.

Paul McKenzie Medical Gases Instructor Course Dec 2013
Today’s course balanced old and new information that I had & has left me with some things to look into in more depth. Excellent!

Today I have received my merit award in Level 3 Award in Health and Safety following a three day course with your company in Redditch.
I have surprised myself in being ‘over the moon’ with my qualification following the exam at the end of your course – I haven’t done an exam since 1983 so amazed that I did so well. Lots was going on at work affecting my concentration perhaps, but the subject drew me in due to the trainers enthusiasm.
I would like to compliment you on:
- Course Design
- Flexibility, and adaptability, willingness to assist a sometimes dry subject with humour and examples from our own fields of expertise
- Content and organisation
- Trainer Knowledge this immediately gained the students respect
There is no doubt in my mind it is always the trainers passion, knowledge and personality that carries a subject, those who train without it soon lose the pupils, and therefore sight of the overall goal in training. I must have had 30 course over the year and this one was in the top 5, I won’t say number one or this could encourage complacency! 😉
Excellent, relevant information delivered by a knowledgeable tutor. Everything well delivered and well explained. Excellent Training 10/10
