I found this course very practical. I feel empowered that in an emergency I could assist First Aid. Kim, First Aid for Childcarers, Nov 2012

I would like to thank Brendan for making the course, that i usually do not look forward to due to past trainers (another company) lack of connection with the group. A relaxed and enjoyable experience i will not forget. I was actively involved in and stimulated throughout the course, my objectives were met over and above what i had expected. These were all acheived thanks to Brendan. He is a first class trainer, very knowledgeable, experienced, he led by example, advised and encouraged each person to acheive and feel more confident. Brendan is clear in his instruction and a real asset to Switch Training. Kath, First Aid for Child Carers, September 2012

This was the best (course) I have attended. John was very enthusiastic and made you want to learn. It was anything but boring. The way he presented the course was clear, understandable and by working in groups of 3 we all helped each other to learn. Well done and see you in a few years!!! Thank you. Falmai, First Aid for Child Carers, July 2012

Very good teaching methods. Lots of theory behind the practical i.e. why we bleed etc. Appreciated the honest reality! Laura, First Aid for Child Carers, July 2012
