Participant Reviews

Gowring – Skate Oakville

“I was just emailing you to say thank you for the first aid training for the Coaches of Skate Oakville and also for your instructor Ally.

Ally was fantastic.  We all appreciated her information and she made it fun too.”

Bianca Castellano – Public Health Nurse at Spectrum Health

Excellent experience with SOS and Velma personally.
Despite a personal set back in the beginning, she was able to assist me with determining a solution! Teachers are highly recommended, friendly, and informative.” 

Rose Bozza – Supervisor at West Prep Children’s Centre

“Velma visited our centre today and presented our School Age children with Home Alone Safety and My Safe Life workshops. Velma and her colleagues were very professional, fun and informative, keeping the interests of the children all day. I highly recommend having SOS 4 Kids to teach and guide your children in a childcare setting or home setting teaching them the life skills necessary for the safety and well being of each and every child. We welcome Velma and her fabulous colleagues back to our centre to continue teaching safety to the children of West Prep Children’s Centre. Thanks Velma!!!!”

Christina Ricci – Bondfield Construction

“Learning CPR and First Aid was something I wanted to do from the day my daughter was born. SOS First Aid has empowered me with the knowledge and ability to decide to act should an emergency situation arise. The program truly impressed me. The use of state-of-the-art training equipment, movie-clip scenarios, literature, and hands-on training with the assistance and guidance of knowledgeable trainers kept the entire class engaged. I would, with confidence, recommend SOS First Aid to all.”

Lisa Lamb – Clubhouse Manager at The Oakville Club

The Oakville Club has relied upon and worked with Velma for a number of years for Staff Training and for our own Membership. Her fun spirit combined with her expertise makes such sensitive learning material easy to learn.”

Mario Sacco – Director, Sales and Business Development – Financial Services

SOS First-Aid and CPR Training Services takes a required certification for many professionals and makes people “GET IT” and learning an enjoyable experience.

“Velma provides and extensive training program to companies and their employees for First Aid. Velma and her team of professionals are extremely knowledgeable in every area of first aid. She will modify the training to your specific needs and or interests. She makes the coarse fun with her great sense of humour, while getting the message of urgency across. You will not be disappointed.”

Sue Furlong – Company Trainer – ISO Coordinator at Gerrie Electric Wholesale Ltd.

It was a pleasure having Velma provide First Aid training with the staff, they gave very positive feedback. Velma was professional in her approach and everyone was well trained by the end of the day. We will use Velma’s services again for the next round of First Aid training.”

Jennifer Rea – Senior Manager, Canada Operations at Kronos

“Velma provided Kronos with First Aid and CPR training to our Joint Health and Safety Committee and a few interested employees. The course was held over two days. She was engaging and made what could have been dry material, interesting and informative. Everyone who took the course scored very well on the final exam and I attribute that to Velma’s instruction and engaging delivery of the material. Velma is friendly and very current in the area of health and safety. I would definitely hire her again in future.”

Partner Reviews

Shirl Pequegnat – Sr. Events and Rentals Coordinator, The Meeting House

“SOS has been using our facility for several years now for both first aid and home alone and babysitting courses. They truly are one of our favourite clients. It is so very easy to recommend them to anyone I know! I have personally seen how they communicate with both adults and children, and it is always pleasant and professional. You can tell that the teachers are not just doing this for a job, but they really care! I often walk by the rooms while they are teaching the children and I am impressed with the teaching and with how well the children listen and respond. I have also seen how they meet with the parents after the class is over and show them what their child has learned. The curriculum they use is fabulous and I wish something like this were around when my children were young! There is no question I would have signed them up!”

Customer Testimonials

  • Hi Velma,

    I really wanted to write you to thank you for all your patience coordinating everything with me. Secondly, I wanted to write you about Allison. We absolutely loved and appreciated her teaching. I have taken numerous first aid courses in the past and none of them have ever come close to what she delivered today. You have a truly excellent instructor that made the content funny, personal and extremely practical. I thanked her personally after class, but I wanted to make sure that you knew how pleased we were as well. Different individuals in the class kept coming up to me afterwards and telling me that they’ve never been taught first aid with such a phenomenal instructor. In the future, when we need any certification, I will most definitely be bringing you our business!

    Thank you!
