Just wanted to give you some feedback on the above course undertaken today.

Great, Steve was down to earth and did not present us with stupid scenarios or non-relevant information.

Plenty of practical’s were undertaken, I can now confidently assist someone who is choking (hopefully will not have to but good to know).
