Just a short note to say I completed the First Aid Course in Cork on Sat and was really impressed with its content and its delivery. Helen covered each and every area comprehensively given the short time allowed - while it may be impossible to learn everything in those few hours I certainly left feeling well equipped to deal with the most basic...

- Jocelyn Emerson - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Thanks to Lisa for making Sam's recent 5th birthday such a success. The kids were kept thoroughly entertained for the whole hour which left me free to get on with other birthday matters.

- Sarah Hare - Sam's 5th Birthday Party - Home Party - playparty course

I actually completed a pediatric first aid course two years ago however, I found the course on saturday focused much more on children. I was never previously taught about infantile convulsions or the recovery position for infants and i found this particuarly interesting. I would definitely recommend this course, it was definitely worth completing.

- Annette Sohor - Harcourt St - firstaid course

This was a very good crash course on what to do in an emergency. I feel more confident minding my 4 mth old after attending the course.

- Ciara Dodd - Carmelite Centre - firstaid course

"Just to let you know that I enjoyed the first aid course. Trish was very informative yet entertaining and approachable. The day seemed to go by very quickly (which I hadn't anticipated at all!). I will definitely recommend the course."

- Clare Tunnicliffe - Malahide - firstaid course

Hi Liza, the course went really well, the instructor Patricia was extremely competent and approachable. Everybody on the course was happy with the course content and preferred doing the course in my house, among friends. I will certainly recommend your company to my friends if needed in the future, Caroline

- Caroline Filgate - Private Course - firstaid course

I really enjoyed the course and found it very very worthwhile. The instructor in particular was very informative and personable and made the day very interesting. The practice hands on sessions were particularly useful. I have since recommended the course to others. In fact I think this course should be compulsory to all new parents.Great course
