    "  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!!"
