Very nice and interacting session with Prakash, I really dont know about Israel been the only country using the Red Crystal symbol, but today I know.
I was really pleased with learning about the the priority in the impalement and CPR. It was something I didn’t know before and I feel that’s extremely important. Also the instructor was fantastic.
i didn’t know that peeing on a jellyfish sting was actually the right thing to do
Absolutely loved both instructorsDr.Prakash and Patty Turnbull.Both instructors showed their passion and dedication through their lectures and teaching. Everyone participated and had fun while learning. I would recommend them both.
The Instructors were very thorough with the course. Really learned a lot.
Very good information and very helpful
Patty was engaging, good at explaining things and open to feedback
Patty was a great instructor. Pace of the course and hands on instruction were very good.
This is an awesome experience different mask fitting I had before.
The teacher was friendly and taught me well, teaching me things from misconceptions about First Aid to vital practices.
Really fun and I learned a lot. It was very interactive.Something I would have preferred, as we are learning the ABC’s is give us time to make sure we are doing it properly before asking us to do it quickly. I felt a lot of pressure trying to do it quickly that I was missing proper steps.
I had a great experience. My instructor (Prakash) made sure that we understood all the concepts and we did a lot of hands-on training as well. This session cleared up a lot of confusions in my mind, and left me feeling more confident about how to respond in an emergency.
Debbie was an excellent instructor! She taught the course in a systematic way and made it easy to get through.

I have been using SOS First aid and Safety Training for my first aid qualifications. This year, I renewed my BLS. Patty and the team have been professional and knowledgeable, with an emphasis on practical application. I refer all coworkers to SOS and would recommend anyone looking for first aid to come here.
Things I learned that I didn't know before- You can get anaphylaxis from a bee sting.- How to apply slings (because previously I got certification during covid there was social distancing, and we only watched on a video).- A lot of things that you see on television may be false or misconceptions. For example, amputated limbs do not go inside ice but it has to be wrapped up in a gauze. It is labeled and then put inside an ice bag.
Park Great instructor and great class. Learned so many new things
Allie was outstanding 👏 Thank you

Very great session with Prakash. Very knowledgeable and good tips to learn as a nursing student. I was always confused about when to call 911 but he gave a really good strategy. asking 3 questions, do you know the background, is the action normal with this background and will it improve. Really great strategy and can easily be implemented
Prakash went through everything thoroughly and swiftly
Great instructor who kept it interesting. He was patient and very informative. Thank you
