What Our Students are Saying

  • Algonquin Student

    Great Practical exercises! The learning was fun and the instructor was very creative. Great learning environment!

  • Rachel FishPublic First Aid Course Ottawa

    I just recently finished my second course through national capital first aid this past weekend and can’t say enough good things about it! I was lucky enough to have Gail as my instructor both times and she is absolutely amazing! She covers the course content so well and thoroughly explains all hands on skills. This course has made me feel very confident in learning all of this content and skills and makes me feel so well prepared! I would recommend this to anyone that is looking to learn first aid or CPR. They also did an amazing job on making us feel safe regarding covid-19 with all social distancing measures and precautions in place!

  • Joshua SheaPrivate Blended Standard First Aid and CPR

    Jen came out and give a great first aid course! All COVID protocols were followed and my staff left the course very well informed. They have amazing communication prior to the program.

  • Krista KilreaPrivate First Aid for Parents

    Recently took a CPR and first aid course through National Capital First Aid. It was wonderfully done - we organized a private class of new mamas, pregnant mamas, new dads, dads-to-be, and new grandparents. The instructor Jennifer came to us and did the course in a backyard with all COVID protocols in place. Very well executed and the course content was perfect - focused on infant and child injuries. 5 stars for the company and for Jennifer as an instructor!

  • The Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre

    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.
