Melvyn was awesome!!! Very entertaining, very informative, and had the ability to keep it all very simple to remember.
Mario is an excellent instructor.
I am happy being lucky to have this course with a great instructor Patty Turnbull. She is very knowledgeable and efficient, her accent is very clear , she is talented to educate in a way to keep us attentive without feeling board although it is a long day. Thank you Patty. Thank you SOS
Patty was a great instructor, very easy to follow and just as easy to talk to about any questions to clarify.
Prakash was our trainer who made this training fun and dispensed a lot of information with examples. Prakash converted complex information into easy digestible information without overwhelming us. There was not a single dull moment in the entire training and Prakash covered every aspect of first-aid/CPR in timely manner. He's passionate, well organized, very engaging and humorous. Thank you, Prakash.
Peggy was excellent.
Training is good and more hands on with real life examples.
Peggy was an excellent instructor for the First Aid and CPR training. Her knowledge and teaching style made the course informative and engaging.
I completed my BLS and standard first aid training with Julie, and it was an amazing experience. Julie's professionalism, knowledge, and helpfulness created a safe and enjoyable learning environment. Her contagious laughter made the entire experience even more enjoyable. It was a pleasure having her as my instructor.
Patty Turnbull was a wonderful teacher and took time to help us, and go through the material thank you Patty!

I am very happy to be here and study with Mario. He is very nice person and he helped us mask fit very seriously and he was very dedicated. I learned a lot of knowledge about mask knowledge and skills. Thanks Mario, thanks the Red Cross.
Session was delivered professionally.
Thank you Prakash for an awesome class. I didnt think I wouldnt learn so much more from the class today, my class was able to get lots of misconceptions clarified. You challenged us with critical scenarios and made us think. From my past experience , I think first aid class would be boring but for the first time at the SOS first aid centre, I’m very happy with the instructor. Highly recommend!
I just wanted to say thank you very much to Patty for being a great and wonderful instructor. For making us understand the material thoroughly and clearly. And most of all for being patient with us. If I need to do another course that they offer, I would definitely do it here and highly recommend it for everyone. Thanks again Patty and SOS First Aid and Safety Training

I am really impressed by the teaching method of Mr. Prakash nagar.
It was an amazing experience! Prakash Nagar is having great knowledge with First Aid & CPR. He clarified clearly when to administer CPR, AED which was a bit confusing for me when I did the reading online.
Every aspect was taken and explains properly
The instructors were very nice and informative. They gave great feedback throughout the whole process
Instruction was clear and the instructor ensured that all questions and concerns were addressed appropriately. Highly recommend!

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
It was really good experience
Patty is the best, she was very funny and her methods of teaching helped me understand the demonstrations and lessons properly.

I had my recertification course with Viola and I have never had a better experience taking a CPR course. She teaches it in a way that’ll have you interested in the information while making it stick in your mind. Thank you Viola :)
