Due to my job, I re-certify my CPR annually. For years, it was very difficult to find an organization which had classes to suit my busy schedule. Since I have found SOS First Aid Training Services, my life has become much easier. They have frequent courses at a variety of convenient locations taught by wonderful instructors. Now every year, I look no further than SOS First Aid Training Services. I would recommend them to anyone for all their CPR and First Aid Training needs.
Amanda, Personal Trainer and Pilates Instructor, At Home Fitnes
Hi Velma, I just wanted to take this opportunity to say “THANK-YOU” so much for helping organize our standard 1st aid and CPR training that was conducted in the comfort of my home!!! All 10 of my participants/friends had a wonderful time learning how to save lives and tending to people in emergency situations. Julie was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She fit in with our crowd so well and helped make our learning experience an enjoyable one. Julie was professional and knowledgeable which was helpful as we had thousands of questions that she answered without any hesitation. We were surprised at how much we learned…even those of us who were previously trained before found ourselves learning new things that was never covered in previous training. Please pass our thank-you on to Julie as well for helping make our experience a memorable and enjoyable one…we all had fun learning!!! We look forward to making this an every 3 year tradition with SOS first aid and appreciated all your help/flexibility in meeting our needs.
Kind regards, Jacquie Fantetti & friends
“SOS First Aid provided Kronos with First Aid and CPR training to our Joint Health and Safety Committee and a few interested employees. Velma 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.”
Jennifer Rea, Canadian Operations Manager, Kronos Inc.

Extremely easy to understand, implement and the user interface is awesome. Like all software that manages data it forces you to get organized prior to uploading to ensure good data in. The user interface is one of the best I’ve seen, very intuitive

Stacey Zita, PTS, Motivation Fitness, Oakville, Ontario
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!
“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 spirt combined with her expertise makes such sensitive learning material easy to learn
