" The first fun first aid course I've done!"

'I usually dread having to take time off work and complete these courses but this was actually a fun day!  We had a good group and Sam's outgoing personality makes everyone want to join in which makes the learning good fun and the day go quickly!'

"We had our own unique course!"

“Sam came to our workplace so made it easy for us all to complete this qualification together.  We chose a day that suited us and told her what was important to our role and she tailored the course to suit us.  This made it much more interesting and beneficial to our company.'
