Just completed my Emergency First Aid for Sport training with Lakes First Aid. Ross was an excellent trainer, being both knowledgeable and engaging in his presentation of both the theory and the practical elements. As a Sports Therapist, I have attended a few First Aid courses over the years but I felt this was by far the most enjoyable. I would have no hesitation to recommend Lakes First Aid to my colleagues and friends.
