    We have used National Capital First Aid at our organization several times now, and only have positive things to say. Always quick to respond to inquiries, scheduling is a breeze, and facilitators are always friendly and very engaging. Thank you NCFA for the excellent work that you do!

  • Algonquin College StudentStandard First Aid and CPR

    " This is the first time I have ever enjoyed first aid. Jackie made the class fun and very interesting, and very applicable to our fields. Great job!

  • Anne StewartStandard First Aid and CPR

    Rob Samulack RN was my course instructor-I've been a nurse for many years so I have a lot of CPR courses under my belt. I thought you ( Rob) did an excellent job, used very effective techniques for both the theory and psychomotor skills, and I left with a greater understanding and sense of mastery. However your career progresses I hope it includes an element of teaching.

  • 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!!

  • Shanie MohammedPublic First Aid Course Ottawa

    I am very happy with my experience with this company and especially with the Instructor Janice Scott . She was more than accomodating to my daughter and went above and beyond to help her. Janice is an amazing teacher who's understanding and caring to all of her students. This company is very lucky to have her on board. I would highly recommend Janice and this compnay to all. Thanks

  • 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!

    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.
