Her teaching style makes the seriousness of the topic interesting, engaging and memorable. You will leave with the security, peace of mind and knowledge to jump into action in the event of an emergency, the whole purpose of doing these workshops.
In our classes, babies are welcome, but you may find it easier to concentrate if you’re able to make alternate arrangements for child care.You also get to come back for a free 2nd Refresher course anytime within 12 months of the initial workshop.
