Very engaging first aid course, best I've had. Nathan is an excellent teacher and is very knowledgeable.
Great instructor, fully engaged & engaging all day.
The instructor was great, fair, never did I feel any pressure! Big Thumbs Up.
Awesome! Was not looking forward to doing the course because of a CPR course I did last year with a different company that was not very good, but was very happy with this course. It was entertaining, well taught and I feel confident now in an emergency.
I learned a lot during this course! The hands on scenarios were very helpful. Chris did a fabulous job - thanks!
Lots of fun, by far the most enthusiastic and engaging instructor I have ever had for first aid. My first time taking a class with Alert and I will definitly be coming back.
I really enjoyed this class and learned a lot. Would recommend for sure!!
Chris was extremely patient with the class, and helpful and informative in his feedback. Created a fun and informative environment. Thanks!
Mike was a very good instructor. He displayed enthusiasm which made the course more lively and interesting. He also provided helpful feedback during exercises.
"Good training, instructor was engaging. Exactly what I expected. Enjoyed my course."
