Our Training Works

A few days ago we had an email from one of our students which said:

Hi Stuart,
I hope you had a lovely Easter break?
I just wanted to drop you an email to say how much the course on Thursday has affected me and my life!
On Tuesday I was at my friend's and unfortunately she suffered a heart attack (stress related). In all honesty without your training I would not have know (sic) what to do at speed and with such confidence. She is okay now and in hospital being looked after.
So thank you so much!

In all honesty it is stories like this that keep us teaching first aid!
