Learnt Something Worthy

“I went to Rescue Plus to do the Emergency First Aid training course and I must say I was very impressed with the quality of their course materials. The course itself was a bit short and a lot to cover in the time but overall I felt like I learnt something worthy. Thanks, Recsue Plus! Keep it #strong #alive.”
