What our clients say:

"We have used Health First many times to do first aid and CPR training for our staff.

They deliver a relevant curriculum for a school setting.  The first-aid theory is balanced with ample hands-on practice.  It has been very well received by our staff and has given them confidence to work in a residential setting."
