    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.

  • Pamela AnthonyPrivate Blended Standard First Aid and CPR September 2019

    "  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!!"

    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!

    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.
