What our customers say about us

Both my husband and myself completed the course, on different days with different instructors. We both found it very useful and were talking about it on Saturday after he left the course. There were lots of very interesting information, most of them we only half knew so it was good to get some practise and also a refresher on what we already knew....

- Anne Weber - Malahide - firstaid course

The course was excellent. John McCormac the presenter was also super. He had a lovely style and I really learnt a lot from him. In fact it is quite shocking how little I really knew about first aid before hand. It should be a mandatory course for all parents!

- Anna Scally - Harcourt St - firstaid course

"I found the first aid course to be really worthwhile and I'm glad I took the time to do it. The instruction was excellent! I forget the instructor's name but he had a great sense of humour that kept things lighthearted. I feel much more confident that I could handle a emergeny situation with Mr. Baby now. Hopefully it will never need to be put in...

- Tana Kaplan Gray - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Many thanks for taking the time to follow up regarding our experience at the First Aid Course. I thought Siobhan was lovely, very warm and obviously very passionate about teaching first aid ñ she created a very open atmosphere where everyone felt comfortable participating and asking questions. I have recommended the course to several pals and I...

- Rosslyn & David Ryan - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Really enjoyed it, thought is scary but reassuring at the same time. Excellent presenter Ögood combination of wit, practicality and medical knowledge.

- Orlaith O'Callaghan - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I joined claphandies so my daughter could interact with other babies and I would meet some new people (I am not from Dublin and I don't have any family up here). What we both get from it is great. Just talking to other parents about different situations knowing you are not on your own getting advice or a comforting ear from other mums and Aisha....

- Claire Nash - Cabinteely - Babies - playlab course

The course was absolutely fantastic. The content was everything literally that I could have hoped, very comprehensive. Caron was excellent as she incorporated questions and experiences throughout the day. I was amazed how well she managed everything as often at the end of a 1 day course there'll be a bit that gets skipped over and you might be so...

- Kathryn - Harcourt St - firstaid course

We both found the course very informative and it was delivered very well by the trainer John McCormack. He had an easy style and explained everything clearly and gave plenty of time for practical learning. I would recommend the course to others as it is very worthwhile.

- Emma Balmaine - Greystones - firstaid course

I can only say that all the boys had a wonderful day at James birthday. Liza was amazing and we are all saying how calm she was managing 25 x 7 year old boys, and so kind to a few siblings and neighbours also ! How she got those boys to do what she did with all the chaos was unbelievable. Well done Liza and a million thanks for making James party...

- Fionnuala Brophy - James 7th Birthday Party - Home Party - playparty course

I attended the first aid course in Greystones last week and it was brilliant - I have recommended it to all my friends and family - so thank you.
