Customer Reviews

Useful knowledge

This makes me feel more confident in my ability to correctly tackle emergency situations with my toddler.

Having it handy to review when you have a few spare minutes is a much better way to spend the time than messing around on social media!

Second Best

This is a pretty good app with the concise and clear instructions you will need in an emergency. Best to go through it before that happens. Better still to do a course for invaluable hands on experience. A pity that the app contains a money off promotion for courses which according to the T&C expired in 2014.

Parental reassurance

I wish I'd have had this app when my children were young. Would have found it very reassuring, especial with then tests for each module.
