“This is my 2nd course, and I really enjoyed it. I will be doing more. Its such a weight off my mind to know and feel secure that I can help loved ones if I need to. ”
“I have previously worked for the NHS and completed inhouse training on an annual basis. I found the ProTraining Over 50 First Aid Course to be equally as good, if not better, as i had no distractions from colleagues and was able to concentrate much better, thus absorbing and retaining more information. Thank you.”
