Client Testimonials

  • Good afternoon,

    My name is Jessica and I attended my Provide First Aid and CPR courses at Morphett Vale earlier today. I am leaving this feedback to commend your trainer (I think his name was James). He was absolutely fantastic! I have social anxiety which made me nervous to attend this morning, but I have walked out of my training session this afternoon with only appreciation. Your trainer made the course interesting, fun and comfortable - which isn't always easy in a classroom environment! I would very much appreciate it if this feedback made its way to James and if there is any way in which your organisation rewards positive feedback/excellence, I would love for him to be commended as he absolutely deserves it. I am not typically the type of person to send any feedback (positive or negative) but I felt compelled to make an exception in this case. I will be recommending your agency to others, and will be back myself in 12 months for my CPR refresher!

    A huge thank you once again,

  • Just wanted to provide some feedback,

    I found Friday’s session very good, the facilitator was great, he knew his stuff and made everyone feel at ease, most enjoyable. I have also received feedback from 1 staff person who attended at Salisbury and 1 staff member who attended at Hewett, both said the same thing, they really got a lot out of it.

  • Good afternoon,

    I just wanted to give some feedback in relations to the three employees we sent to the Low Voltage Rescue & CPR course the other week in the CBD.

    Our employees really enjoyed the interactive training and facility provided. All three took home something new from this day.

    Kind Regards,

  • Did the First Aid and CPR course at Marion Hotel yesterday. The trainer was exceptional and learnt more about first aid than all my previous courses that I have attended. Very professional and interactive that provided confidence in doing the practical CPR and trauma bandaging. Recommend these professionals to anyone needing first aid certification. Cheers.

  • Please thank those involved within your organisation who assisted me in gaining this essential certificate. The office team could not be more helpful and my instructor (John) was both entertaining and professional.

    As a customer I received value for money and your service is exemplary.

    Kind Regards,

  • I really enjoyed the inclusive environment of the trainer from Firstaidpro. I was nervous about the course but I learnt more than I thought I would. I am going back to school feeling much more confident in my role as a 'First Aid Chick'
