My instructor was phenomenal. He made me understand the philosophy of care, the practicality and that got me appreciating safety from a different perspective. I loved the story telling. It really resonates with you. Thank you for impacting my knowledge.

I have been taking first aid courses at different places in Ottawa over the past 12 years and by far First Aid 4 U is the best. The teaching technique, and the way the information is given makes the course really enjoyable. The stories and real life experience shared during the course helped me retain most of the information taught. A big thank you to Hauley who is by far the best instructor I've ever had the pleasure to meet and learn from. I will be back for sure.

David Smith is the instructor that made taking this course as enjoyable as it was. Combining techniques with real world experiences and comprehensive demonstrations really makes you understand the gravity of how helpful these practices are on the field.

Such an amazing experience. Had so much fun and learned a lot of valuable information that could help me help someone in the future. I am definitely more confident now to walk up to someone and help them. Our instructor Mr. Hawley was amazing and very helpful and we learned a lot from his past stories and experiences.

The Brampton instructor is the best. He makes learning fun and easy. If you listen to the instructor (which is his #1 rule) you will pass with flying colours. Thank you Aurangzeb you were GREAT!My only issues are they need to invest in a Bluetooth speaker as the laptop volume isn't loud enough and a bigger tv would be nice.

In class portion:- Good instructor.- It would be better if the TV was the appropriate size to see the presentation, or if used a projector allowing a wide screen.Online portion:- Well designed.- It would be better if it provide a summary of main points for each chapter allowing the student a quick refresh about them.

The course and instructor were good. After the course was completed I’ve started to receive emails stating that they hadn’t received my payment. I contacted them, clarified that they had my payment, and received by email, a copy of the invoice indicating that it was paid in full. Since, I receive an email monthly stating I still haven’t paid, each to which I reply with the receipt, marked “paid”, attached. It is impossible to speak with a person when you call in. It goes to voicemail every time. Disorganized, and to be honest, the emails are rude, stating how it’s problematic that I haven’t paid them, and that it’s an urgent matter. If I had rated immediately after taking the course, it would have been 4-5 stars, but based on the nonsense that has followed, I just can’t. Sorry everyone….get it together.
