“I have attended several first-aid refresher courses; this had to be the best. Tash was very-well prepared and knowledgeable. Her wry sense of humour and sharp intellect added considerable value to the day. She responded to questions in a calm and purposeful manner. She was diligent in monitoring the different activities and if necessary would hold the attendees to account. Her professional approach was appreciated by all. Thank you for the opportunity to update and upskill”
