    Had a great experience learning under Instructor Agnes. Very patient and taught the concepts well. I feel that it's good to promote understanding more than just rote memorisation, which she was able to deliver on.

    Attended the Standard First Aid course and my class trainer is Raymond. I agree with others that he gives negative vibes and condescending towards his students. Very low EQ and impatient trainer. He needs to learn that students pay fees to learn things, not to be put down and humiliated. We are all adult, there is no need for him to resort to shouting in class when we don't get things right. Good luck if you get him in your class.
