What our customers say about us

Yes I did enjoy the course and thought it was really worthwhile to attend. The instructor was very good, made the course very practical and interesting. And yes I would recommend the course to friends.

- Marie-Josee - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I thought the course was good and the content was appropriate. I liked the fact that it dealt specifically with children. I would feel more confident now dealing with an emergency. It was worthwhile and I would recommend it to others.

- Lara Hynes - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I think claphandies is a great social outlet both for the babies and parents alike. My little girl loves Mr. Badger and gets so excited when she sees him each week. She also loves the rhymes and songs.When she gets upset I say one of the rhymes and she instantly stops.

"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."

- Conor Waters - Greystones - firstaid course

"I found the first aid course to be really worthwhile and I'm glad I took the time to do it. The instruction was excellent! I forget the instructor's name but he had a great sense of humour that kept things lighthearted. I feel much more confident that I could handle a emergeny situation with Mr. Baby now. Hopefully it will never need to be put in...

- Tana Kaplan Gray - Harcourt St - firstaid course

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...
