What Our Students are Saying

  • Alyssa from Algonquin CollegeStandard First Aid and CPR, August 2017

    Great class! I love how interactive it was. I learn best by doing and the instructors gave us fantastic scenarios to practice and learn from.

  • CandaceFirst Aid For Parents October 2019

    " We had Paula teach the First Aid for Parents class last night. She did a great job and was so helpful with answering questions. We were a group of home daycare providers and new parents.  A great course for anyone dealing with little ones, and a great refresher for people that have taken a complete first aid course. "

  • 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!

  • Skylar DonaghyStandard First Aid, October 2017

    My experience was amazing. Everything was explained very well. It was always interesting and great stories were shared. Thank you for everything!

  • The Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre March 2018

    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.

    " Gail's class was super awesome.  We learned some of the very important things one needs to know in a very fun and comfortable environment.  I would definitely recommend it to a friend."

  • 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.

  • Allison QueratStandard First Aid and CPR, October 2017

    I really enjoyed this course. Of all the first aid and CPR training I have received, this was definitely the most beneficial. My instructor made the material easy to learn, remember and demonstrated how to apply it in different situations. Keep up the great work!

  • 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.

  • Watts/Jorgenson FamiliesPrivate First Aid for Parents, November 2016

    This course was excellent! Jen did a great job of commanding the room and presenting the material in a clear and concise manner. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is expecting a child.
