What Our Students are Saying

  • Momentum Business Law EmployeeJune 2016

    I have never taken a CPR course before but this was so easy that I wish I would have done it sooner! Great course, great time, great skills!

  • CandaceFirst Aid For Parents October 2019

    " We had Paula teach the First Aid for Parents class last night. She did a great job and was so helpful with answering questions. We were a group of home daycare providers and new parents.  A great course for anyone dealing with little ones, and a great refresher for people that have taken a complete first aid course. "

    " Absolutely fun and hilarious! Loved practicing with friends in training and scenarios!  It didn't feel like 16 hours : )"

  • 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!

  • Siham BenyoucefCommunity First Aid Course, Apple Tree Medical Clinic

    I have taken many CPR courses in the past and this was the first interesting and fun one! Thank you!

  • 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!

  • Skylar DonaghyStandard First Aid, October 2017

  • Pamela AnthonyPrivate Blended Standard First Aid and CPR September 2019

    "  I was SO happy to have found National Capital First Aid!  We signed up for the blended learning course, and were all pleasantly surprised at how convenient ( and FUN) it was!  The option of having the instructor come to us was golden! I've taken several first aid/cpr courses over the years, and this one, BY FAR, was my favorite.  Super knowledgeable, interactive, and friendly instructor. Thank you for a fun day Jennifer!!"

  • 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.
