I've had over 20 years of First Aid courses in various locations and environments. Without exception this was the... best.
From the get go we were very well informed and kept up to date with information during the COVID-19 developments and it's subsequent restrictions and limitations.
The course was very well attended (including 5 of my own Team) by a diverse crowd with varying experience and requirements. These were all answered and handled exceptionally.
Clarity in explanation and understanding was second to none and it's the very first time a course leader has not only explained the biomechanics of certain situations and techniques but also applied relevant, practical and common sense!
Cannot recommend them enough.read more
