What our clients say…

The group thoroughly enjoyed the training, the interaction was excellent and felt they learnt more rather than just listening to someone. We covered CPR, Bleeding, Shock, Choking and Unconscious Casualty. We will definitely be booking again for re-fresher courses. Jake was very good and went at a pace we could all cope with.
