Course testimonials:

  • Friendly trainer. Friendly smaller group.
  • I enjoyed the practical learning - how to do DRSABCD, CPR and bandaging the broken hand. Enjoyed everything in the class.
  • Clear course, helpful and relaxed trainer. Mix of activities including theory, practical, discussions and watching relevant clips helped embed the knowledge. Thank you
  • Very informative and I really learned a lot.
  • Kate Dolan (our trainer) made it an informative and interactive class.
  • Very informative with multiple learning materials and a flexible teacher who allowed for questions and discussion.
  • Very friendly and intelligent teacher/registered nurse running the course. Very clear, fair and made the course as fun as possible. I enjoyed the slide show presentation and videos as they were not too graphic which is quite intimidating on such a large screen. Thank you for this opportunity to teach me first aid - I think everyone should do this course every 3 years - it would take a lot of stress off our medial/health systems if everyone knew basic CPR and signs to look for, for Heart attacks, diabetes, etc. Would save many lives and preserve oxygen to the brain long enough until paramedics arrive.
  • Training was relevant & well-paced. Venue was easy to get to & good Covid-19 protocols were in place.
  • There were different topics i was taught and i learned a lot from it. I understand fully how to apply CPR when emergency present itself. Happy with everything.
