Tidal Direct blog post Public Hearts goes from strength to strength – and meets The Cheltenham Gold Cup

A month today we will be celebrating the 5th anniversary of Tidal Training Direct Ltd.

It’s been a busy start to the year, continuing our highly rated and supported first-aid training services to businesses throughout England and Wales.

As we come through Covid, we’re proud to maintain our safety and quality standards to teach first aid skills, vital both in and out of the workplace.

This month’s spotlight shines on our Public Hearts Cheltenham Defibrillator Campaign progress.

Thanks to the continued support of Bob Holt OBE, Spirax Sarco and the business community, we are delighted to place public access defibrillators in Cheltenham town centre.

Our work started pre-Covid, donating a defibrillator to Moon Under Water, co-funding a defibrillator for the United Services Club and working with Cheltenham BID who generously funded the public access defibrillator that sits in one of the phone boxes by RBS – Cheltenham town centre’s first.

With Spirax’s generous donation of 10 defibrillators and several external cabinets, activity has ramped up.

This week we installed the 9th defibrillator at Copa on Regent Street, ahead of Race Week, giving this popular retail and hospitality area access to a defibrillator.

A huge thank you to all other defibrillator locations for their collaboration and support. We also extend this to Bob for his continued generosity enabling us to place a public access defibrillator on Winchcombe Street at Cheltenham Martial Arts and for Gloucester City Mission. More fantastic collaborations with the local community to give access to this lifesaving and life changing equipment in the event of a cardiac arrest. Bringing Great Western Air Ambulance Charity to the partnership brings us added expertise and coverage. Welcome GWAAC!

We were delighted to bring defibrillator partners together this week at The Sober Parrot. And the Cheltenham Gold Cup added some sparkle!

Collaboration and mutual support for one common purpose can work wonders.

Raising awareness in numbers of lifesaving defibrillators is what Public Hearts’ core purpose is, and we’re grateful to everybody for your support.

    5 star review  I attended my first course yesterday and what a wonderfully empowering experience it was. The highly trained paramedic teaching put us at ease straight away and I am looking forward to learning more of these invaluable skills. Lovely staff and great communication too. I will be recommending these courses to everyone - thank you.

    5 star review  BeSocial@theCentre have been using Tidal Training for our staff training needs for a couple of years now and we could not be more pleased with the service and quality of training that they provide. When we contact the office, the staff we speak to are very friendly and helpful – every query or issue we have is always dealt with professionally and efficiently – 100 % customer service satisfaction! The ‘Trainers’ who we have had the pleasure of meeting, either face-to-face or online, have always been fantastic. Very clear in their presentation, knowledgeable in their subject and have made learning enjoyable. Sitting through a dull training session certainly is not on the agenda with Tidal Training! The flexibility and understanding, that BeSocial@theCentre have experienced with Tidal Training during recent months, due to a change in Centre staff and then COVID-19 pressures, has be second to none. Both Clare and Colin have been fantastic in changing dates and fitting our staff members in to different sessions to fit our requirements – We can not thank them enough for their patience with us. Thank you to the whole team at Tidal Training – We will see you at our next session!

    5 star review  A genuinely lovely company. Very concerned for their clients' happiness and satisfaction. Very professional and organised everything beautifully. The trainers were AMAZING. Really bright and knowledgeable, able to respond to questions, kind, funny, friendly and approachable. Training can sometimes feel only partially useful, but this all felt like things we needed and would use, presented thoughtfully and clearly by brilliant trainers. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tidal and will certainly use them again. Thank you!

  • 5 star review  After attending this first aid training I was impressed with the amount of information that was covered in the day as well as being taught in such an engaging manor so the information was retained well. I especially liked that the trainer for the course was an active Paramedic and was able to relate the first aid training to real life scenarios and experiences and share stories which kept the course interesting and gave character to the course. Overall an enjoyable training course which has left me feeling confident in providing many forms of first aid, highly recommended.
