"It was seamless, written in simple, everyday language and the support provided by the trainer was helpful and prompt."

I was surprised and delighted at how easy the process was to complete the theory component of my First Aid course. It was seamless, written in simple, everyday language and the support provided by the trainer was helpful and prompt. I definitely would recommend this on-line course as it provides the same learning outcome but from the comfort of your own computer.
