  • I attended a first aid course last Saturday at the KEC in Kingshurst, Birmingham. I have worked in the NHS for 14 years and have never received such a fantastically delivered first aid course in all them years. Your tutor "Tom" was professional, encouraging and really supportive throughout the session. The way he delivered the information was really impressive and made everyone on the course feel comfortable enough to ask and answer questions without feeling the embarrassment of being wrong. He also kept the group engaged an interested and eager to have a go at the practical element. I really feel I came home with a really good understanding of areas I haven't had training on before and have a better understanding of the bits I knew. I think this man is credit to your company he is a fantastic tutor, Thank you, One very impressed childminder to be!
