Instructor David is amazing and makes learning the material fun. He makes the most of all the material he has to teach, he involves the whole class, asks for volunteers and what I liked the most is on the second day (if you take the two day in class) if that he has a jeopardy like game that you get to practice what you learnt the previous day. This really helped for the test at the end of day two. Thank you David for a surprisingly fun two days of relearning CPR/FIRST AID.

The instructor was excellent and skillful. (David Smith) I recently completed the Standard First Aid & CPR Level C course by 2nd shat, bec my first day was to boring and wasn't feeling well but, i learned a lot from those days for me amazing teaching with a new instructor again Mr David Smith has different way to teach a student he knows i get a good potential, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn life-saving skills. The instructor was very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. He explained the concepts clearly and demonstrated the techniques effectively.

The instructor Hawley, was good and knowledgeable but the classroom setting not ideal, and small for a big group.
Great course-above expectations- by First Aid 4U and Hawley was a fantastic instructor. I do recommend it and will check on other courses in the future. Thank you!

The class was intensive. The instructor knows his game very well. However, I would like to suggest, being a professional teacher myself, that intermittent short breaks would be helpful for students/participants to refresh a bit. I felt, like other students very tired at a point and some other participants expressed the same sentiments. This is a humble suggestion though.Thank you.

I would highly recommend First Aid 4U for any of your First Aid training needs. I completed my Standard First Aid & CPR/AED Level C through First Aid 4U, a Canadian Red Cross training partner. Our instructor, Hawley, was very personable, and easy to follow. He often gave examples of real-life scenarios that he’s found himself in, or situations in which our training could play out in the real world. Our class was really interactive. I took First Aid & CPR/AED Level C many years ago, around 2010, and aside from the gap in time/evolving knowledge, I learned more about the same topics now than I did back then! Awesome work, First Aid 4U!

I had a great time in class today with the wonderful David "smitty"smith.I learned a ton today. He has a way with how he explains things that really make you think..about scenarios in that may arise in real life..he is beyond knowledgable! His personal experiences really moved me with what he has dealt with..he is straight to the point and blunt in a really good way.we laughed a lot.we learned a lot and he truly is a great instructor.i was nervous about this but with all his information ontop of the slides he made me super confident and passed with 100 percent.thanks a bunch!
