  • 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!

  • Pam PilonFirst Aid for Parents Course

    My training came in handy 2 weeks after I completed this course. My son started choking, he turned blue and passed out. I am happy that I knew what to do!

  • Algonquin StudentStandard First Aid and CPR, February 2017

    Before taking this course, I thought that the content was going to be very complicated but Michel was a great teacher and made things easy to understand.

  • 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.
