What people are saying about My First Aid Course
Mal's professionalism, humour and obvious love of teaching all-things first aid made this course an absolute pleasure. As a Registered Nurse of over 30 years experience I cannot recommend Mal enough.
The course was well facilitated and engaging throughout. I now feel confident to administer first aid in a professional environment.
Best first aid course I’ve ever done! Fun and professional.
My experience with My First Aid Course was very good. This is the second time I've done First Aid Training but it's the first time I've actually retained the information. Plus I had a really fun time.
Mal was my first experience in first aid training. He made the whole group feel very relaxed. He teaches with an excellent balance of professionalism and humour. His passion for first aid training and seeing people do their very best is infectious. I would recommend Mal to anyone wanting to learn first aid, he will give you everything you need to perform first aid confidently.
