What our customers say about us

I found the course very good. I feel more confident that I would be able to deal with an emergency, the instructor was very good. I liked that the instructor got us do carry out various emergency procedures a couple of times with the models until we were confident. He covered all questions and queries and was very helpful. I have recommend the...

Hi Liza, The course was excellent, I couldn't find one thing negative to say about it and I have to say the guy giving the course was very very good. It was that good I spent the evening telling my husband about all the things I learned. I found out about the course through reading about your website on the Independent supplement. I would...

- Fiona Henry - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I really enjoyed the course thanks. I found it to be a very good overview of first aid and was delighted it included adult CPR etc as well as just paediatric matters. There was a lot to take in in a day but reading the informative booklet afterwards helped it sink in. Siobhan was great- a lovely woman. The personal anecdotes really helped liven up...

- Elaine Hastings - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Hi Liza - my nanny Nadia actually went on the course and found all of it excellent and very practical and would definitely recommend it. She thought the instructor was excellent.

- Jocelyn Emerson - Harcourt St - 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 was very happy with course content...... covered everything. Patricia, the instructor was terrific ! It was so interesting and I was disappointed when it finally came to an end as I was so engrossed. It was definitely worthwhile and I am so much more confident in administering First Aid to the children. I would recomment you highly to...

- June Woods - Malahide - firstaid course

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

Liza was excellent and the children warmed to her immediately; she made them the real centre of the party and it meant the parents could relax a little bit more than usual. You could see how much the Birthday Girl enjoyed herself and how excited she was which just made it so worth it for us. Thanks so much!

- Jane McCluskey - Ava's 3rd 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.

- Amanda - Greystones - firstaid course

We had a play party for our 4 year daughter and it was a great success - Liza effortlessly and unobtrusively kept 20 girls and boys entertained with games, activities and music and turned our garden into a riot of colour and fun. It was a great way to keep the party at home and I would certainly do it again.
