What People have said about the Course:
I cannot recommend Jim O’Brien, First Aid Refresher trainer on behalf of Samson Training, enough. The training was very informative, interesting and very enjoyable. All attendees came out of the training speaking very highly of the training received.

I found the refresher course very interesting and the presenter on the day was excellent. She made the course very interactive and interesting and fully brought us up to date on any changes in the training in the past two years. I would have no hesitations in recommending this refresher course to any person/Company.

I found the course to be both enjoyable and very beneficial, the content covered a wide range of areas from burns to cardiac arrest both the practical and the theory was thought in a very structured way working towards the examination at the end of the 3 days. I would recommend this course to anyway who is interested for both work and on a personnel level.
