What our students are saying are the BEST ASPECTS of our training?

  • The Practical application was good; 
  • The trainer engaged with everyone in the group equally; 
  • Tom was a great trainer. He clearly explained everything and was very approachable. He also had a great amount of practical knowledge and experience which helped show the relevance of the information being taught;
  • Our trainer was excellent. The practical hands on. The acronym memory patters like DRS ABCD and RICE was good. Where clear number patterns like 30 then 2 were given – this was good. The emphasis on giving first-aiders confidence with “Any CPR is better than no CPR if the casualty is not breathing” was good; 
  • The practical work and theory around DRSABCD;
  • Real life stories & experiences from the trainer;
  • Hearing from the trainer what real situations were like.
