The practical exercise trains my mind to be aware of what's required of me. She (the trainer) is very gentle, sensitive and informative. Being ISO certified is a very good certificate to hold and the subjects we studied over 3 days were sufficient for me to handle any first-aid scenarios
I'm able to perform the CPR & AED now, that if any incident happened near me, I can do the initial saving of their life
I enjoyed the way the instructor teach us during practical session
I learn more things about saving life
The instruction and practical knowledge were clear
