“Thank you again for the amazing course. The scenarios was a major help. I assisted in an incident that happened at Pak n Save Hastings Last night. A young Female had blacked out and was losing consciousness quickly. Thankful to this course I was armed with enough knowledge to assist the female and Pak n save staff until the Ambulance arrived. Luckily resuscitation was not needed. But I instructed a Defibrillator to be presented just in case.”
