I write, read, travel, garden, renovate, work, drink coffee - all the usual things. My lovely partner often accompanies me, and of course my constant companions, two feisty terriers, are never far from my side. We live in and enjoy South Australia.

Become more employable with First Aid skills and certificate
Working in a field where I have to keep my First Aid and CPR qualifications current, I'm always on the lookout for the best course, at the best price, that is available at a location day and time that suits me. I want what I want, and when I'm paying, I believe I should get what I want!
Over the years I've done many First Aid and CPR courses with a variety of training organisations. Taking time off work to update a required skill is inconvenient and costs me the day's work, in addition to the price of the course. I have always had to check who is offering First Aid and CPR, when, and at what price. It was a recurring stressor in my professional life! Until I discovered First Aid Pro.

First Aid Pro is my go-to provider for all First Aid related courses, saving me the waste of time phoning around other training organisations for times and costs. I book online, pay online, read the pre-study material that First Aid Pro email immediately upon booking, and then remember to arrive before the start time to fill in the necessary paperwork. Bring your pen and reading glasses to fill in the answer sheets! Be prepared to be self-sufficient for meal breaks if you're in a full-day course. After the course, your certificate will be emailed to you, which you can print if you like, but I simply email my certificates to my employers, saving paper.
The trainers I've had at First Aid Pro are excellent. They are knowledgeable, personable, (sometimes humorous) and have interesting and relevant personal experience to share, which brings the learning material to life. Classes with First Aid Pro are well structured, orderly and run to schedule, while allowing adequate time for all learners to grapple with the learning exercises and gain a firm understanding of the principles and procedures. I have always found the classes enjoyable, with a diverse range of other students. First Aid Pro trainers are respectful and considerate of individual differences and cultures.
