Feedback from Epilepsy Train the Trainer Course

Presentations and activities were excellent and encouraged group participation which helped alleviate any worries. I found all training relevant and very useful. I now feel I will not only be able to provide training to staff but also help to support staff regarding dealing with epilepsy.”

It was good to practice skills of rescue meds and also be evaluated. I have really enjoyed this course. The trainers have excellent, sound knowledge of the subject and were able to support me with answers to all questions. A very quick three days.”

Being the person in class with the least education, training and knowledge, I have left feeling full of relevant information. My skills and knowledge have increased greatly.  I found the practical demonstrations most useful.

All presentations and activities were relevant and interesting. I will definitely use the information as a trainer. Equally, I have taken things to be incorporated into work and practice. I came with a good level of epilepsy knowledge – this has definitely improved. Very good!
