It was fun and I made lots of new friends. I learned how to properly treat and take care of children. The instructors were nice and easy-going. The hardest part of the training was trying not to laugh at the CPR dolls.

Good combination of hands on learning, detailed curriculum, both by screen, role playing, and hands on experience. Also had small classes so more hands on one on one instruction.
