  • I just wanted to pass on how much all the staff who attended enjoyed the excellent Defib training yesterday with Rod. We all found it interesting, informative and extremely well taught. Thanks to Rod, we all feel very confident that we would be able to deal with an emergency situation that required either CPR or use of a Defib. Many thanks

  • Glenn was a very knowledgeable & competent trainer. He was friendly & explained everything to a level to suit all present. He coped with all the unusual questions & scenarios which we have come across excellently. I would highly recommend him as a trainer for groups of all abilities & feel he should be commended for his hard work.
