What past 21-day students are saying…

"This was BY FAR one of the best courses I have EVER taken. The amount of practical knowledge and real-life lessons imparted in small chunks over 21 days was amazing. I highly recommend everyone take this course!" 
-Ayaz S.
"Nicole's 21 day online 1st Aid and CPR course was thorough, accessible, well organized and enjoyable. I left with a much greater level of confidence that I can care for my family and community." 
-Aviva A.
"You and this course are fantastic. I thought it would be more difficult to learn because it wasn’t in person because of COVID, but your videos were very easy to follow and were the perfect length. Your real live example stories were awesome, as it was great to hear about the techniques we were being taught, working in real life scenarios. Learning this information for infants has helped settle my nerves about our new upcoming baby. Thanks again!" 
-Adam B.
