First Aid Course:

Suzanna was fantastic. We where lucky enough to have the first aid course at our venue. Suzanna came to us and delivered in a very detailed but relaxed manor. She was very open which gave everyone a chance to join in and ask questions. We will be using Smart Qualifications for all first aid courses in the future.

First Aid Course:

Tracy was a great tutor – clear no nonsense style with some great examples from her work experience. Lots of practical work, limiting the chalk and talk. Her approach seemed to meet the needs of everyone on the course. What a great day!


First aid – Tracey was knowledgeable, friendly and the whole course had a practical element to it, which made it really engaging, the group wasn’t too big which made it easier to interact with others. The course took place in a friendly and relaxed environment. Tea and coffee is always a plus!
