Nathan's presentation was both powerful and gripping. 5 stars out of 5.
I have taken several first aid courses over the years. This was by far the best. I would recommend Alert!
This has got to be the most relaxed first-aid course I've taken. The hands on helped me learn. The knowledge of the instructor & the way he presented the information helped me retain the information
"Great course! I didn't think I would learn this much in only three hours. Chris was excellent and was very thorough with all of the key points that we need to know in case of an emergency. Hopefully I won't need to use what I've learned, but if I do I'll be prepared! Thanks so much!!"
Best first aid class I've taken before. I learned lots and improved on my knowledge of CPR.
Fantastic. Better than I expected. Humor was a great addition - thanks!
Always great! Love Alert First Aid!
I am a lifeguard and recert often. I like the training, instructors, and customer service of Alert First Aid. Gary was excellent!
Mike was a very good instructor. He displayed enthusiasm which made the course more lively and interesting. He also provided helpful feedback during exercises.
I have done first aid courses a couple of times over the years, and this one was the best! Nice balance between teaching and hands-on scenarios, and an excellent instructor.
