"We were so fortunate to host the KidzAid team at Google for a Vital Aid course. The team were excellent and experienced. The enthusiastic presentations and demonstrations kept the room engaged for the whole afternoon. As a participant, I feel more confident that I would know what to do when faced with an emergency and in particular, have a better idea of when to present to hospital. The section on fevers is especially enlightening for anyone with a baby or toddler. A very worthwhile course."
