What People Are Saying About This Provider?

Check out some of the testimonials from customers that attend courses:

Low prices, great teachers and multiple locations to choose from. I was very pleased with the registration process. During class the teacher made all the material very easy to relate to and provide plenty of stories. Her experience and knowledge made the class realistic and enjoyable. We also got to practise all of our skills on mannequins. Thoroughly enjoyed the course

We needed a last minute private course that met Alberta OH&S requirements and Edmonton First Aid pulled through. We contacted them the night before as another provider had cancelled and they were able to send an instructor to our facility the very next day. Very professional and they have a great business sense
