The training that we’ve received from Pete and Ryan has been absolutely first class. In addition to a three day first aid at work course we’ve also had eight people attend their Emergency First Aid at Work course. Their courses are easy to understand and enjoyable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Direct First Aid.
