Short First Aid Workshops (2 hour)
Our 2-hour workshops are geared towards those who wish to gain invaluable emergency response & first aid knowledge and skills, without the financial/time commitments of a fully certified first aid course.

"We enjoyed an interactive and informative First Aid Presentation by Dave. He concentrated on CPR, choking and the use of a defibrillator as was requested.
The staff enjoyed the session and felt they would definitely feel competent to use the defibrillator from now on if the need arose.
Dave was very engaging and has great interpersonal skills.
