Just a quick note to say thanks for the course last Saturday. Was a really enjoyable course (well as enjoyable as learning about resuscitation can be!), and filled in a lot of gaps since my last one a few years back.

I’ll be sure to recommend to anyone else I know who is looking for shore-based training.
