  • "I really enjoyed this course, as I have taken many first aid training courses across Canada, this has been one of the best.  I felt very informed and enjoyed their in-depth training.  They have paired their hands on field experience with the course material perfectly.  I haven’t left a first aid course more prepared as I am now. Thank you."
