    Very well presented, very informative, we learned so many new things and I really enjoyed the learning experience. – Shaun Creamer

    Extremely informative. It was great that we were taught about why you do certain first aid treatments rather than focusing on too many rules that we could easily forget in a crisis. I feel much more prepared to use my new skills and common sense in an emergency situation and instinctively react and deliver effective first aid. – Jackie Creamer

    The course was really good and very well presented. Good to practice different skills. The abdominal thrust equipment and light up manikin was excellent. – Ruth & Robert Kinderman.
