Course Feedback

“This was the clearest, most informative first aid course of the 3 I’ve ever been on. Phil is a great tutor, easy to listen to, engaging and makes the content interesting. I feel more confident in using the skills & techniques learnt before but this time taught in a more accessible way.” Laura, January 2019.

“Brilliant course. I can now go back to working & dealing with young children knowing I can treat them to the best of my ability. Although a serious course, it was made to be fun and very informative.” Michelle, March 2019.

“Interaction between the whole group made learning and participation easy and successful. It was a good mixture between practical and hypothetical without any sensationalism.” Liz, May 2019.
