What People are Saying

“Videos are easy to go back to as well as easy to understand ”

- Louise, Child Care / Day Care Provider from England

“Although it is a really long process listening to all the vignettes, I wrote notes on each and found that when the questions came up, I had enough information to be able to answer the questions with a lot more ease. Loved the fact that there was no time restraint. It gave me a chance to go over areas I was unsure of before I answered. This course was much cheaper and the website was really easy to use. I would definitely use this course again and recommend it to others thinking of doing this first aid course.”

- Katie from Wiltshire
