What Our Students are Saying

    Unanimously, we all felt that Paula did an outstanding job. Today’s course was very engaging, even with COVID restrictions, it was well taught. The examples and the points Paula used were relatable to our employees, making it easy to understand and learn.

    Thanks for being a great team! We look forward to working with you again in the future!

  • Arooj SaidPublic First Aid Course Ottawa

    Thank you so much for you patience and excellent service! All Covid protocols where in place and I learnt so much. Highly recommend!

  • Steph OliveiraPrivate First Aid for Parents

    My family and I couldn't be happier with the infant course and Jen's profesionalism. We have a preemie baby with some breathing concerns and everyone in my family feels much more confident that they can help our little man if an emergency were to occur. Very informative and simple enough for my 12 yr old niece and 70 yr old father-in-law to follow. All COVID protocols were followed.
    Thanks again, Jen!

  • Algonquin Student

    Gail gave us an excellent overview of First Aid and CPR. I loved the engagement and interactions. Our instructor was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. I had fun while learning

  • Tiffany L. JohnsonPublic First Aid Course Ottawa

    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.

  • Veronique LaportePrivate First Aid For Parents Class

    It is unbelievable how much piece of mind my family and I now have after having completed a private in-home course (First Aid for Parents). The instructor and owner, Jennifer, was extremely knowledgeable and personable. The comprehensive 2-hour course was easy to understand and highly interactive. We highly recommend that parents and extended family (e.g., grandparents, aunts/uncles, etc.) take a look into some of the courses offered by this great organization. You won't regret it!!

  • Bobbi SoderstromPrivate Corporate Training Event

    I was very impressed with the overall blended program. And very importantly, our on site instructor, Jennifer, was excellent. Her knowledge went beyond the basics of the program. She had many personal experiences to draw from, bringing vivid colour and reality to many of the emergency situations and the ability to add practical tips. On top of that she was personable and easily adapted to the style of the group which included a lot of laughter and creativity despite the senior ages of many of the participants.
