    Remarkable course

    It was a superb course. We were recommended this First Aid training as a team and part of our induction programme. It served as a nice break in between all the serious training that often goes on during Inductions. The course itself was interesting and very practical. We learned through real-world examples.

    Very appealing

    It was an informative course and I learned quite a lot on first aid, although I was taking this as a refresher course. The instructor explained everything in a step by step manner, which I found very appealing.

    Happy with the outcome

    The course was not too interactive but as it progressed, the training improved and I was pleased by the final outcome. As a new employee I learned much about this subject, which I hope to use at some point in my life, one day.
