What People are Saying

“Great, informative and clear videos. For me, online training was a much better option than having to take a day off work and travel to a day course.”

- Paul, Personal trainer from Surrey

“Very comprehensive course covering all necessary topics in just the right amount of detail. Delivered in a clear and reassuring way - I feel much less daunted by potential emergency situations now and would be much more willing to step forward and try to help. And a really convenient way of learning!”

- Lucy from North Yorkshire
