Not what I had hoped for

It’s taken me a while to write this review (I did the course about 12 months ago now). I think because I part of me felt let down and disappointed and the other part felt embarrassed to have been influenced into this course when I could have saved money and learnt more doing a smaller, locally run class.

Overall the instructor was very knowledgeable, however unfortunately the class size was just too large to actually make it worthwhile. She also had wey to much content to cover within the time frame.

A large portion of the course was spent on cpr which I did not find beneficial as do annual basic life support for infants/children st work. I do understand that this is important to cover for most though, however feel it displaced and made the actual content I wanted covered (eg fever, febrile convulsions, falls first aid) feel rushed, incomplete and I can’t recall most of it. I also was not impressed at the quality of videos (all snippets sent in by parents on social media).

Brilliant course for parents

Love to hear this feedback, thank you Leah!

Wife of attendee
Suitable for first time parents pre-child

My husband attended the course. We have a 2yr old and a 4 month old. He has attended BLS years ago and felt a lot of this was already covered in that. He also said that having a 2yr old already we had experienced many of the scenarios already. He did take a few things from it but overall felt as though he didn't get much from it unfortunately and that the presenter just read out of the book you get so you could just do that instead of attending

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to share your husband's experience with our course. We truly appreciate your honest feedback, as it helps us understand how we can better serve our participants.

I'm sorry to hear that your husband didn't find the course as beneficial as you’d hoped. We understand the importance of delivering content that is both engaging and informative, especially for individuals with previous training experience.

To address your concerns, we'll be reviewing our course materials and instructional methods to ensure that we are providing unique and valuable insights.
