COVID-19 and Training
'I felt that the course was extremely well organised and that great care had been made to make sure that everyone felt comfortable with the situation. The tutor was very mindful of social distancing and gave plenty of opportunities for people to say if they felt uncomfortable. The online learning was a great addition to the course and I felt much more confident when attending the two afternoon sessions because I felt that I already had some knowledge behind me. The flow of the afternoon sessions was brilliant and having a mannequin each to practise compressions on meant that this part of the training ran much more smoothly than I have previously known.
Thank you for all the hard work that has gone into these sessions, you made a very daunting training session a very pleasant experience'.
