What our customers say about us

"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...

"I found the course really helpful and interesting. The course content covered a lot of areas and the practical aspect of the course was very good as it was not just theory which made it easier to take it all in and learn. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the instructor was very good and informative. I think would feel a little more confident...

- Mark Mcloughlin - Greystones - 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

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

We love the different props used every week and the very simple but effective activities with these. I also like the themed discussions and interaction with other mammies. The tutors are really enthusiastic and make sure that every infant is included and engaged.

- Orla Donoghue - Marino - Wobblers - playlab course

"I attended the course last Saturday & I was very impressed, I Definitely found it helpful. In particular I felt coming away that I understood the concepts & methods; I did a 3-day occupational some years ago & was more confused coming away from that. Instructor was excellent & good mix of content/practical/sample-stories & taking questions. ...

- Jodie McGriele - Terenure - Wobblers - playlab course

I found the course really interesting and practical and it met my objectives in the timeframe given. I thought the tutor was very good. Her knowlegde and instruction were excellent.

- Catherine Coleman - 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...
