Fantastic course, practical elements very good. Trainer very good - easily understood
Best First Aid course I have attended - completely relevant to my role. Clearly explained with excellent practical activities, I was able to retain and remember all of the information
Really good teaching technique for me. Went into depth explaining why things are done a certain way, which will hopefully make it easier to remember
Very good teaching in ways that are easy to remember
