What our customers say about us

"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

Hi Liza - my nanny Nadia actually went on the course and found all of it excellent and very practical and would definitely recommend it. She thought the instructor was excellent.

- Jocelyn Emerson - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Hi Liza, The course was excellent, I couldn't find one thing negative to say about it and I have to say the guy giving the course was very very good. It was that good I spent the evening telling my husband about all the things I learned. I found out about the course through reading about your website on the Independent supplement. I would...

- Fiona Henry - Harcourt St - firstaid course

The course was excellent. John McCormac the presenter was also super. He had a lovely style and I really learnt a lot from him. In fact it is quite shocking how little I really knew about first aid before hand. It should be a mandatory course for all parents!

- Anna Scally - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Thank you for your mail regarding the First Aid Course. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and thought it very worthwhile. Our Instructor, Trisha, was fantastic. She is very professional and has a vast amount of experience and knowledge. I have already recommended the course to anyone I have spoken to since.

- Marcelle Gribbin - Malahide - firstaid course

I enjoyed the first aid course and did learn a lot of very good information. The instruction was very good and our instructor very passionate about the subjects covered. Thank you for running the course and I look forward to taking courses with Claphandies in the future.

- Lisa Ockochinski - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Both my husband and myself completed the course, on different days with different instructors. We both found it very useful and were talking about it on Saturday after he left the course. There were lots of very interesting information, most of them we only half knew so it was good to get some practise and also a refresher on what we already knew....

- Anne Weber - Malahide - firstaid course

Hi Liza, I found the First Aid course very useful and definitely feel more confident to deal with an emergency. The instruction was excellent!

- Madeleine Lavin - Harcourt St - firstaid course

"The course was great - very worthwhile indeed. The instructor was very good and he really went into the CPR aspect of the course in great detail and we were happy to have to go through it again at the end of the day. It's amazing how confusing it can be when you actually have to go through the steps on your own so it was great that he spent so...

- Nicola & Stephen - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I found the course extremely benefical --- whilest I would probably still panic in an emergency, I would feel more confident to deal with a first aid crisis than before & would I think feel more confident knowing what to do. The course content was very relevant --- I would recommend to others.
