What People have said about the Course:
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 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.
Aoife BealesHR Manager, Radisson Blu St Helens Hotel
We have used may different companies for training over the last few years and Samson Training have stood out a mile. To say they are efficient is an understatement. The course itself was well run and the trainer Patrick Gaynor was excellent. All our staff enjoyed doing the course.
