"I have always done St. John Ambulance first aid training. This course was taught differently but was more effective due to m ore hands on training. I will definitely return to Alert First Aid for my re-certification. Thank You!!"

"The instructor was entertaining and obviously experienced in the field of first aid. It is a lot of information in a short time, clearly presented, varied, physical and fun. Thank you for teaching today's course. I was a teacher so I know how difficult it is to keep people's attention for a long time. You did an excellent job."
