“I have been taking First Aid courses for 33 years. This is the only one (Level 3 Paediatric First Aid) I have ever come away from feeling confident and have managed to take everything in. It was due to Matt as a teacher. He was very calm and explained things so clearly, as a teacher he was amazing. I have booked 4 other members of my family on your courses in the next couple of months. 10/10″
