Colin was a fantastic first aid instructor. He gave a realistic experience of what to expect and what should and... definitely shouldn’t do in multiple scenarios. Always reiterating the importance of each scenario and the appropriate way to respond. He is the best first aid instructor I have experienced! I would recommend Colin to anybody who not only wants to get their first aid and CPR qualification but also a real life experience of how to act.read more

I highly recommend this first aid training, especially if you are fortunate enough to have Colin as the instructor. He... was engaging & enthusiastic about his role in preparing you to use the practical aspects of this course on your own loved ones - that made it real. You need to read and understand the book as a lot is not covered in the short time available. The course was presented in an enjoyable but direct fashion, sometimes confronting, but altogether made real by a man who obviously enjoys and takes his job seriously.read more
