Love it!

Loved this course. I was concerned that I would forget what was taught but you also get access to the online course to refresh your memory and access to print outs which I'll be putting around the house. Also the lady that taught the course was lovely and a great teacher.

Well worth it

The first aid course was great. There was so much helpful information and Bec the instructor was so friendly and engaging. We would recommend the course to all parents, and having access to the online information for refreshing your knowledge is so helpful.

Great learning!

I took the course after my son had a febrile convulsion and I didn’t know what to do. Sadly we tend to leave these things for the last minute, but it’s essencial to every parent to have some first-aid knowledge before any event happens. Tiny Hearts course will give you all the knowledge you need to care for your baby when they need help. Totally recommend!

Alexia Lidas
Fantastic content.

I think this is really well designed content. Our trainer was great too! The only thing I think could be better is better coordination with the venue so that people have access to food.

Overall great course, but some modifications needed

We registered for this course as it was the most extensive out of the ones available in Adelaide and covered the most topics. Overall it was great, the instructor was very knowledgeable and the information was useful. However, the allocation of time between topics should be revisited - for example, most attendees indicated they were interested in learning about choking and yet this topic was rushed through at the end, while less important topics (e.g. pain relief) were allocated far too much time in my opinion. Also, it might be worth reinforcing in your reminder emails that if people are unwell they should stay at home - we were in a fairly crowded room with multiple people who were clearly unwell, which is quite distressing with so many pregnant women present.
