“I would use [HTS Training] again.  Everything was well prepared, [the trainer] spoke well, was very friendly and easy going, and took time to explain things.  The course was very well explained.  I learned a lot.”

“I would just like to say thank you for the excellent first aid course you delivered at St Andrews School. I have spoken to the nursery staff and the feed back is very positive and encouraging, staff enjoyed the course. As you know I was keen for staff to have a good understanding of Epipen and resuscitation and was pleased that this was included in the course.”
