This session was by far the best, and most informative refresher I have attended. It was especially beneficial for the non-medical background staff as you went one step further to provide basic information that some of us take for granted.Saskia
I’ve been to two of Peter’s training sessions in the past, and have always found his content energised and engaging, which helps with the learning process.
The course was informative in a quality setting, and the session flew past. I’ve been to many first aid refresher courses and found yours really stood out from the crowd.Sean
