What our customers say about us

The course was absolutely fantastic. The content was everything literally that I could have hoped, very comprehensive. Caron was excellent as she incorporated questions and experiences throughout the day. I was amazed how well she managed everything as often at the end of a 1 day course there'll be a bit that gets skipped over and you might be so...

Dear Liza, Alexis was delighted with the course and can't stop advising people to attend it. Thank you very much.

- Alexis Murphy - Harcourt St - 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

- Aoife O'Shea - Harcourt St - firstaid course

"Hi Liza, course was excellent, I found it very practical, and the instructor engaging, friendly and informative. I'm very happy with what I learned and, please God, while confident I hope to never have to use it. I'll be recommending you. Rgds, Conor."

- Annette Sohor - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I was looking for something to do with my daughter, Emma on my day off from work. I was looking for something that we could interact with eachother instead of just bringing her to the playground or for a walk. So I started looking around and I googled items to do and clap handies came up. Emma and I both really enjoy the class as we are both...
