Very good, enjoyable as well as informative and confidence-boosting.
Janet, June 2006
Really well-structured. Relaxed, which was great. Good pace throughout the presentation. Fantastic. Would look at doing this 1-2 yearly to refresh. Would also advise grandparents to do the course.
Rebecca, July 2006
The handouts are very valuable - great getting the Poisons phone number and magnet chart.
Aimee, July 2006
Extremely valuable information, and well targeted to young families, with relevant life situations.

I had to put what I learned from Dawn to good use, so was relieved to have done the course. A friend’s son choked at our beach house, so I did the Heimlich on him to dislodge it. Have to say I burst into tears afterwards at the shock of it all! But it worked and I did remember what had to be done, even with 4 other adults screaming at me to “thump him”. So a big thanks to you both.

Note from Paul and Dawn - That story is exactly what drives us. The thought that we contributed, even in some small way, to saving a child’s life is the best reward ever.
Fantastic course, perfect content for busy mums.

I watched in horror as my young fella reached for a hot cup of tea someone had left right on the edge of a table. I called out loudly to him to stop but he ignored me and the hot tea poured over him before I could reach him. I immediately followed your teaching, removed his clothes and got water running over him. He was not happy about it, but I persisted. When we got to the doctor half an hour later, the doctor examined him and said that he was thrilled to hear what I had done because he expects 3rd degree burns from boiling tea. There was virtually no sign of any burn. A day later there was literally no effect. Thank you so much for teaching me what to do.
Nina, September 2007
Very good, tailored course, met all our needs, with 2 small children, good to have a handout Zoe, April 2008
Dawn is very practical and her guidance was great. She presented very realistic examples.
Gretchen, January 2008
Keeping it simple is great. Great value. Everyone should do it. Dawn was thorough.
Rachael, Feb 2008
Great balance of instruction and practical demonstration and participation. I found the content and the structure of today’s course very informative. The small group was particularly good too. It made it easy to hear Dawn, to ask questions, and to participate.
Elissa, December 2008
Dawn, the way you presented this course was fantastic. The passion and knowledge made this the most useful course I have been to. I feel comfortable to perform CPR and to help a choking victim, whereas in other courses I had left a little bewildered. Thanks.
Judy, June 2009
Every child carer should do this course - should be more widely advertised an available to non “play school” parents.
Alexis, June 2009 (good news Alexis - it’s available to anyone)
Instructor was warm and accessible, course was very informative.
Candice, November 2009.
I’ve had multiple first aid and CPR courses throughout my life and this was the best CPR training - thank you.
Kasia, June 2009
Very important to do refresher courses - there were a few things I had forgotten from the last one. Brilliant instructor. Thanks Dawn.
