Slide Andy, Chris and team are the ultimate professionals. We booked a school one day first aid
training, for all, and a paediatric course. The booking process was competitively priced, easy
and friendly. On the day everything went smoothly. Andy has a professional, common sense
approach and knew exactly what schools first aid training should be. Easy to follow and we all
felt the CPR was made simpler than in previous years. Thanks again. See you in 3 years!
