TESTIMONIALS

I highly recommend Priority First Aid organized by Gordon! I hired them for a group training for our staff at a gym facility and they came to us bringing all the supplies. Very professional and accommodating. Most recently I needed to upgrade my qualifications for a new job and we were able to complete it safely via video chat. They were able to fit me in within the week. I couldn't be happier with my experience!

-Melanie

I highly recommend priority first aid! I needed a nationally certified CPR-HCP course for my program asap. The priority first aid website was easy to navigate and Gordon was easy to get a hold of and very accommodating with my busy schedule. Great hands on learning in class and the instructor was very knowledgeable. Overall wonderful experience!

If you need first aid training or recertification go with Gordan and Priority First Aid. Same price, third of the time and super easy to work with. Private classes or small and he comes to you.
