Best 1st aid course I have taken. Very well presented and extremely informative both practically and theoretically. Steve and Eric genuinely care what you are taught and that you understand why you are on the course.
Thankyou both.

Julie Beynon

Attended a First Aid at Work level 3 training course yesterday - was really informative and engaging would recommend to anyone looking to update their first aid knowledge - I didn't realise how little I actually knew - hopefully if the need every arises I will now be in a position that means I will be useful in a crisis.
