Student Comments



Classroom based skills was useful and I really appreciated how the online learning and classroom learning linked with each other.



The instructor was very engaging and was able to answer any question we threw at them.



This course was much better (than previous course). The level of knowledge and experience of the trainer and the additional skills made it very interesting. Getting to do a tourniquet in real life was good too.
