Highly recommend this company. The instructor Kerren was very knowledgeable. Worked through... everything at a fast pace but still made sure everyone knew and understood what they need to do, giving plenty of time for questions. About 30 minutes after leaving the course I came across a lady who was unwell at a shopping center near by. She ended up having a seizure. I was able to help her until paramedics came. What were the odds of this happening straight after going to first aid training . This class gave me the confidence to go over and offer assistance. I will definitely come back for my more

I was extremely impressed with the quality of the course, the pricing was fantastic as it was... affordable. Prior to conducting the first aid theory and practical I was not feeling very confident with my skills but the course provided me with the skills, knowledge and practice to feel more confident in maintaining my CPR and first aid certificate. I would definitely recommend this company, due to the value and quality of the course, it caters for anyone and they provide you with quality and enough resources for all. The trainer (Theo) was really engaging and explained information really well!read more

I completed both the first aid and CPR course over the span of half a day. The online portion of... the training was very detailed and had interesting scenarios to work through. The classes were very informative and the trainer had a great understanding of the course as well as real life experience to draw stories from.The administration was very helpful also, as I had to reorganize my course date, and was able to do it with no hassle. Would definitely recommended if you need to get CPR trained.I attended the course at Quest in more

I booked in to do my CPR and first aid training and fell sick over the weekend. First thing Monday... I emailed the company and they promptly transferred my enrolment from the Monday to the Friday, free of charge. The class itself was informative and reinforced the online theory. It was a relaxed, yet professional learning environment that I found extremely useful. Despite Covid-19 the company has adapted and my certificate was emailed out on the same day. Would highly recommend!read more

CPR First Aid (and Theo) gifted us the power of life today. Not only did he guide us through the... facts and the knowledge, the skills and the challenges, he connected with us on a deeper level to help the knowledge stick. He was patient, he was fierce and despite the significance of the exercise, he effortlessly brought a smile to each of our faces. What a man, what a business. We will make it our mission to spread the word that CPR is CLEAR, PRACTICAL and RELEVANT to every living more

I would honestly recommend doing the CPR and First Aid Course.I learnt so much from the... instructor (Carlos if I remember correctly ?) he was quite knowledgeable and very experienced! He had many relevant and great stories to tell. He gave us a few examples which was very beneficial in our learning. He was also able to demonstrate the tasks which we had to learn The trainer explained things clearly and in a realistic manner.I definitely developed new skills expected from this training and built on my knowledge. I now have an understanding on what to do in case of an emergency. There was a good mix of theory and practical work. I enjoyed the teamwork the most, hands on learning.I would definitely recommend the training here. They were extremely helpful and understanding towards peoples needs and showed respect and patience.I will definitely be returning! Thank you for such a great and rewarding experience. ?read more

I had an absolutely fantastic session with CPRfirstaid and walked away with an abundance of... critical and necessary information. My trainer helped me to be more confident in my abilities as a first aider, his personal anecdotes paired with the information on the slides made it much easier to remember the content (and made the session humorous and entertaining). I feel as though I will successfully be able to respond to the breadth of injuries taught in this course and definitely recommend it to all. 10/10 🙂read more

Great trainer, clear educational content. Walked away from this course with confidence as well as a... certificate!!! Interactive course made learning life long . Value for $$ , parking & easy to get to made this course even more appealing. And to know I have the option for an express refresher course instead of a whole day or 3hr, will see me back here when it’s time to renew my more

My employer provides first aid, but I prefer to attend CPR First Aid Training because they are more... thorough. This was my first year attending and I'll definitely be back next year. Chris was an awesome instructor: engaging and loved his anecdotes. Quick results too. I've already received my certificate. Thanks heaps CPR! I have already spread the word!read more
