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.

This is what Aoibheann aged 3 says about Clap Handies: 'My favourite part is the songs, I like when the dishes are in the Surprise House too. I love when I get there and see all my friends.

"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.

- Anne Marie MacCormack - 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.
