What Our Students are Saying

  • AnonymousStandard First Aid and CPR, October 2017

    This was honestly the best course I have ever taken. I usually fall asleep and have issues staying attentive but I was interested the entire time. I loved the stories and the activities. I fully enjoyed it and really didn’t mind missing my weekend and waking up early on a Saturday!

  • Watts/Jorgenson FamiliesPrivate First Aid for Parents, November 2016

    This course was excellent! Jen did a great job of commanding the room and presenting the material in a clear and concise manner. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is expecting a child.

  • Allison QueratStandard First Aid and CPR, October 2017

    I really enjoyed this course. Of all the first aid and CPR training I have received, this was definitely the most beneficial. My instructor made the material easy to learn, remember and demonstrated how to apply it in different situations. Keep up the great work!

  • The Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre March 2018

    The best way to learn is through interactive scenarios and that is definitely what happened in this class!  We learned so much and had fun too!  The experience was memorable and helped bring our staff to the next level.

  • ALEXANDRA ReanoCorporate First Aid Training at Cuso International

    The blended first aid training super good, the online session was very interactive and the practical session was great as we practiced various scenarios that built our confidence.

  • Tiffany L. JohnsonPublic First Aid Course Ottawa January 2019

    I took the Standard First Aid CPR/AED Level C with Gail and I enjoyed every minute of it. It was a very interactive and hands on class, our instructor delivered the information with enthusiasm and was extremely knowledgeable about the material being presented. She allowed us to ask questions and give our own accounts of emergency situations that we have individually encountered and was just so pleasant to work with. The real life scenarios we played out showed us just how fast things can go from calm to chaotic and how we must be able to react quickly and remain calm. I totally loved the experience and would encourage anyone to take this course.
