Read What Others Are Saying About Kids 1st Aid Courses

Many of our participants find our presentations so valuable that they feel compelled to share their experience with us and encourages others to register for a Kids 1st Aid course.

In fact, we owe the success of the Kids 1st Aid program to the generous word-of-mouth support and kindness that our participants have shown us.

Below are just a handful of testimonials that we've received from Moms, Dads, Brothers, Sisters, Grandparents around the country.



I completed your first aid course a few months ago - today, I saved my daughter's life!

I completed your first aid course with Allan a few months ago. As a result - today, I saved my daughter's life!

My daughter is crawling. She is 8-months-old and into everything. She picked up a toy and put it in her mouth..

My husband saw her crawling up the hall. She was turning bright red, unable to breath. He called out to me and immediately, I picked her up - put her on the bed with her head over the edge and gave her back blows (hard) until she threw it up - about 10 seconds later.

We headed to the emergency room - I was told I'd done exactly the right thing and probably saved her life. Happy to say, she's fine now.

Your first aid course gave me the knowledge and confidence to help her and I'll be eternally grateful.

With my sincere thanks,
- Amelia

What I learned had a lot to do with staying calm and helping my daughter while she choked on her dinner last night.

My name is Jess and we organized and attended a first aid session with your company last year.

I just wanted to say thank you soooooo much for providing such a great session because what I learned had a lot to do with staying calm and helping my daughter while she choked on her dinner last night.

Lexi, our 12-month-old daughter choked on a piece of chicken that she was having for dinner last night. She turned purple, her lips were blue and she was not making any sound. It was absolutely terrifying. However, I think that I stayed reasonably calm, I called 911, and kept her across my knees, hitting her on the back.

Thinking back now I know I didn't hit her on the back anywhere near hard enough - I just didn't seem to be able too. Luckily for us - after in about 2-minutes she was very purple and limp - the food seemed to have dissolved and moved into her tummy, as we never saw anything come out of her mouth. By the time the Ambulance arrived her color was returning and she ended up being fine.

Although I did not do everything correctly, I think I did at least have the confidence to stay calm. Anyway, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your course. I truly think it played a big part in saving my daughter's life.

Many Thanks!
- Jess

The Paramedic really simplified the information and made me more confident about actually using the steps.

Just some feedback - the course was fantastic - he really simplified the information and made me more confident about actually using the steps. This workshop was better than other courses I have done.

Cheers,

We all went away feeling a lot more comfortable in our role as parents.

I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you so much for Tuesday's presentation. The presenters knew their stuff. They were so friendly and easy going that nobody in attendance felt embarrassed to ask questions - so all went away feeling a lot more comfortable in their role as parents. I've had nothing but positive feedback from all the parents who attended.

So thank you again - it's a wonderful service you offer, and definitely one I will be recommending to everyone!

Cheers,
- Kate

Alan was not only informative and interesting but he was also very accommodating in answering our questions.

I can imagine that your business will grow very quickly. It is a wonderful concept and very, very, very helpful. I heard about you by word-of-mouth and I am so pleased to have managed to get a group of friends to be part of the afternoon. Alan was there to hear the enthusiasm of the group that participated.

Alan was not only informative and interesting but he was also very accommodating in answering our questions. He was also helpful with a few tips that might help us with signs of heart attacks and how to handle that. I thought that if anyone from the afternoon had any comments to make I would send them to you.

Ben, both you and Jenny have a very easy manner and made me feel very comfortable getting this group of friends to participate in the course.

Thank you, I now feel much more confidant being a grandmother/babysitter.
- Ann

Everyone enjoyed it and we feel a lot more confident now as parents!

I attended a first aid course and just wanted to say thank you very much for a fantastic course. Everyone enjoyed it and we feel a lot more confident now as parents!

My husband and I found the material was easy to understand and it was delivered very well…(could be boring to listen to if the speaker presented in a boring manner) but Sue was really good and kept everyone engaged the whole time.

I am so glad I attended and I feel much more confidant now in dealing with issues should they arise. Please thank Sue for doing such a good job. Her experience really showed and she was a lovely lady to deal with.

Kind regards,
- Joanna

Today it paid an unexpected dividend!

In December I took my 12-year-old daughter with me to one of your first aid courses. This was in anticipation of her babysitting for others in the next few years.

Today it paid an unexpected dividend. As she and her 11-year-old brother got off the bus and crossed the road, the young woman walking in front of them collapsed. My 11-year-old instinctively put out his hand to catch her head. My daughter moved the young woman to a safer place on the road by an island and placed her in the recovery position.

She then enlisted the help of an adult asking them to call the ambulance.

Shortly, further adults came to help and the ambulance arrived. The only down side was that the paramedics assumed that the kids were just bystanders and told them to go away.

Thanks to your course my 12-year-old daughter had the courage and confidence to act in this unexpected situation.

The session was thoroughly entertaining... even with the serious nature!

Thanks so much for a fabulous session today!

We had a great time, the session was thoroughly entertaining... even with the serious nature! We learned so much and are now feeling far more confident.

We will definitely be recommending your course.

Thanks again,
- Mark and Taya

Hopefully we will never need to use the things you taught us but we certainly feel a lot more comfortable now if we had to…

Here is a quick note to say thank you for the great session you did recently for us. We found the session incredibly helpful. Hopefully we will never need to use the things you taught us but we certainly feel a lot more comfortable now if we had to. We will certainly be recommending Kids 1st Aid courses to all our friends and family. We would like to suggest to our that you provide your workshop to new parents in post-natal classes.

Thanks again and best wishes,
- Jesper, Fiona and Thor

I was very impressed by both the accuracy & detail of your information.

Just a brief note to let you know how much I appreciated the first aid session for parents. As an R.N / Midwife & Parenting Educator, I was very impressed by both the accuracy & detail of your information, & the friendly, reassuring way in which you presented it to us. As a Mom of small children, I left tonight feeling much more confident in what to do when "it all goes to pot"!

You consolidated many bits of knowledge for me, plus adding plenty of new ones. You have a true "knack" for what you do & your time & skills were very much appreciated.

Yours Sincerely
- Mel

Congratulations for your professional approach and well-organized presentation!

I just wanted to thank you and Craig for organizing our Kids 1st Aid course. We've had terrific feedback from attendees and would like to congratulate you guys on the professional approach and well-organized presentation. My husband and I attended and got so much value from the course and have the poster stuck on our refrigerator for reference. It was excellent.

Thanks again,
- Kirsty

We were all shocked at how little we knew!

Hi! I just wanted to drop you a quick email thanking you for our course last night.

Sue did an amazing job. We were all shocked at how little we knew.

It was a fabulous night, with the compliments coming thick and fast. It was very informative and had an engaging format. We learned soooo much!

I have emailed your information to all of my friends and family … so I expect everyone I know with children will either be attending a course or organizing their own workshop.

Thank you again. Absolutely Brilliant! I Cannot thank you enough for undertaking this great business idea.

All the very best.
- Tracie

The fee is “peanuts” when compared to the value of what is learned.

I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful program!

My husband and I attended your Kids 1st Aid session last Saturday and came away feeling confident and even excited that we had attended!! What to do in an emergency was always something that terrified me (not only for our baby but even just if someone collapsed in the street!). Before having our baby, the fear of something bad happening sort of paralyzed me and thus prevented me from making sure I knew first aid because I thought it was so complicated that when I needed it I'd get all confused and make things even worse for whoever needed my help.

However, after giving birth to our baby son, I realized I had to make sure I was prepared for an emergency - no chickening out!

After your fantastic program I feel more confident that I can calmly (hopefully!) recall and put into action whatever needs to be done if we have an emergency situation - the program was so practical. Katie applied it also to adults in a clear and simple way, which I really appreciated. I am a person that usually has a hundred silly questions, so I was really grateful that Katie patiently took and cheerfully answered everyone's questions (which usually covered something I wondered also) until everything she was instructing us was clear in everyone's minds.

I was amazed at how logical and simple so many first aid steps for various situations are! Things have changed since learning all those complicated and confusing procedures in P.E. in high school! After realizing how simple (and obviously life-changing) first aid really is I cannot help but wonder why it isn't mandatory for everyone to learn first aid!

The fee is “peanuts” when compared to the value of what is learned. Thank you also for the fantastic poster to help reinforce what we learned. We already have it hanging in the bathroom where we can read over it every day so it will become a second-nature reaction.

We have been telling all our friends about what to do in different situations that also help us remember the steps clearly.

I apologize for such a lengthy email, thank you once again. So incredibly glad that we attended your session! Please pass on our thanks once again to Katie :)

With much gratitude.

We can’t protect them from all the dangers of the adult world, but we can make sure we are responsible and reduce the dangers to a minimal level.

I attended your course a couple of weeks ago and just wanted to say thank you so much for your frank and very informative presentation. Even though I had a little bit of first aid training I learned tons and I feel confident that I could now handle almost anything that might happen in the best possible way until the ambulance arrives.

Since your lecture a few things have changed around my home, I now carry a cell phone with me everywhere when I’m walking on the property with my daughter – I’m not so blasé about snake bites or injuries that might occur away from the first aid kit. For summer, I plan to have a snake bite kit (dressing and broad bandages) in trunk of my car.

I have moved all medications from the bottom drawer in the kitchen to the top shelf of the cabinet since Lily can now open drawers! We have removed all the old supplies from the first aid kit and restocked it with the important stuff.

I used to keep bleach, cleaning products and dishwasher tablets under the kitchen sink. Now, all of those products are on shelves, out of her reach.

My husband does regular first aid training at his work but we had some good conversations about what you presented and he realized that a lot of the important information for kids is not covered in his training so he has now learned vicariously through me and through your poster. He now knows the difference between adults and kids when it comes to first aid.

I wanted to let you know what a great job you did, you made us all think and yet did not condescend or make us feel bad about making such common mistakes. We can’t protect them from all the dangers of the adult world, but we can make sure we are responsible and reduce the dangers to a minimal level.

I sincerely hope that your business thrives. You certainly deserve it.

My 14-month-old daughter and me, Thank You!!!
- Sonja

I've done many first aid courses in the past but what I learned in your course will stick in my mind.

I've been meaning to email you to say thanks for the fantastic first aid course.

Ben was a great presenter. He was informative and entertaining. Everyone that attended was very pleased.

I've done many first aid courses in the past but what I learned in your course will stick in my mind.

So, thank you for such a wonderful course. I was so pleased I shared your information with my daughters and we have been telling other friends and family.

My husband thought it was the best first aid course he had ever been taken (and he has several over the years).

I wanted to write you after our course to say what an excellent workshop. We all thought it was well presented by Heidi. The content was absolutely on target.

My husband thought it was the best first aid course he has ever taken (and he has participated in several over the years).

Anyway, sorry this is so late, but better late than never!

Thanks again.

What a great course!

My husband and I attended your course after being very scared by a choking incident with our nine-month-old daughter the week before. What a great course!

Alan was a wonderful presenter. He provided great “hands on” experiences and his stories kept things lively. He also illustrated the skills we need in a way that I'll remember. I also found it invaluable how he explained the cause of different injuries/conditions and the reason a particular treatment worked.

My husband thought it was the best first aid course he has ever taken.

Many thanks,
- Sarah

About an hour ago my 2-year-old daughter swallowed a nickel and wasn't able to breathe.

I wanted to send a quick note to say that I attended one of your sessions and I often glance at your information sheet that is posted in my pantry.

About an hour ago my 2-year-old daughter swallowed a nickel and wasn't able to breathe. The look on her face was terrifying. Thankfully, as I said above, you helped me be prepared and know what to do. After the 5 back blows she spluttered, vomited and must have gotten the coin out of her airway as she started breathing again. It was honestly the most terrifying thing I've been through with my kids.

Thanks again for giving me the information to be able to handle the situation.

Cheers,
- Nancie
