I would just like to send my sincere thanks for the first aid course last week. I thought you had a great balance of practice and theory, and it was the most enjoyable first aid course I have done!

Found the course very worthwhile and beneficial especially the AED training part of it. I had no idea how simple they are to use. Ali May 2019

Good course, well taught. There is a lot of info to remember and it was delivered in a fashion that was easy to remember and I now feel confident as a first aider. Thanks.

Well run, informative course. Definitely recommend. Gavin May 2019
