--- I had Dee round to our flat for a private first aid course with seven other couples. We had a great afternoon, most importantly learning but in an easy to understand relaxed format with babies roaming wild and practising their own CPR techniques on the mannequins! Highly recommend that anyone does this course. Dee covers all the basics and things you may not have even considered, she really knows her stuff and leaves you feeling confident that you can handle any emergency situation.

--- Best course ever, well organised, sharing experience and knowledge with possibilities to practice under guidance (partly on different dummies) for the emergency. It gives yourself and your partner much more knowledge and confidence for worst case scenarios. This is so important, especially with young children! Well done! Highly recommended!!!
