Just quickly want to say the course was great on Saturday.  This was my first time and I learnt a lot so was stoked.

Just want to thank you for the opportunity to complete my first aid
training with Practical Training Solutions. I found the online assessment really valuable and allowed me to go back and check if needed.

The trainer I had this morning was amazing as well. I loved the set up you have for the practical assessment as well. I will definitely been sending all my teaching team to you for their training. Once again thank you for providing an amazing first aid course.

I would like to thank him [Tony] for his time and efforts that he gave us yesterday at our practical course.  I walked in there feeling nervous, but walked out feeling great and a lot more knowledgeable.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself and it was all thanks to his down-to-earth nature of teaching. 
I would highly recommend to my colleagues to take this course.
