What our customers think of this course type:

A great course, that is uncomplicated and concentrates on what you need to know if you are in an emergency situation. Peter doesn't just read from a text book, he knows his subject and teaches using real life examples from himself and others. I would be surprised if even the most experienced 1st aiders did not learn some invaluable tips from him.
