What our customers say about us

"Everyone that attended the course found it extremely beneficial. The mix of discussion and practical work kept it interesting. Fergus, our trainer was also excellent. I have since recomended your company to 2 groups of people and would not hesitate in doing so for anybody else. I feel much more confident now that I could handle an...

- Olivia McCarthy - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I thought the course was excellent and I found it very interesting and useful. The instructor was knowledgable and friendly, and had an appropriate sense of humour. I would certainly recommend it to friends

- Annette Sohor - Harcourt St - firstaid course

"To summarise on the first aid course, I found it to be very useful, very informative and very well constructed. The Nurse who instructed on the day, well you couldn't find anyone better to run that class."

- Garry Kirwan - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I really enjoyed the course thanks. I found it to be a very good overview of first aid and was delighted it included adult CPR etc as well as just paediatric matters. There was a lot to take in in a day but reading the informative booklet afterwards helped it sink in. Siobhan was great- a lovely woman. The personal anecdotes really helped liven up...

- Elaine Hastings - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I thought Siobhan was lovely, very warm and obviously very passionate about teaching first aid she created a very open atmosphere where everyone felt comfortable participating and asking questions. I have recommended the course to several pals and I...

- Rosslyn & David Ryan - Harcourt St - firstaid course

My feedback on the first aid course would be very positive. I learned a lot during the course of the day and found the practical stuff particularly useful. I am not sure I would remember so much if I didn't have to do it myself on the day (cpr etc.). The instructor was very good and the class was a good size. I would definately (and have already)...

- Deborah Mintern - Harcourt St - firstaid course

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found it really beneficial. I did a first aid course about 12 years ago for work but couldnt remember any of the content and now that I have a baby, I felt that I really needed to know what to do if a situation arose. The course instructor was very nice and made the course very enjoyable. The structure of...

- Caroline McPartlin - Malahide - firstaid course

Hi Liza, I just wanted to drop you a quick email regarding the massage course I attended in Rathfarnham recently (finished up last Friday). I just wanted to say that the massage tutor, Julie, was absolutely fantastic. I have attended a couple of courses pre- and post natal, & Julie's classes really stood out as being the most enjoyable &...

- Pauline Forsyth - Terenure - babymassage course

"I really enjoyed the first aid course. The content was very comprehensive & the instructor was excellent. I liked the fact that the course included alot of practical demonstrations. Hopefully I won't ever have to use the skills learnt but I would definitely feel more confident in handling an emergency with my child should one arise. It was a...

- Anne Marie MacCormack - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Lara adores her play lab, she starts shrieking with excitement as soon as we drive in to the carpark! She thoroughly enjoys the songs and bubble time and the activities are fantastic as I can see her adapting her newly learnt skills at home. It is her second term and she is still as keen as her first day!!
