"Mike was incredible at making everyone feel comfortable in the class."
Always great! Love Alert First Aid!
I thought this course was great! It was educational, but at the same time I had a lot of fun and felt very engaged.
I loved the creative use of props, the high energy and excitement, the strong focus and clear communication, the instructor's sense of humour, and how simply all the content was organized. This was a fun, informative and well-instructed experience. Impressive - and I don't get easily impressed!
I have taken/taught many basic first aid courses; this was one of the most effective in terms of entertainment, good discussion, knowledge and practical education. Mike is an excellent instructor - thank you. Fully recommend.
Thank you for teaching in a humorous fun way it made the long day enjoyable.
