The eight hours were in one stretch, with one lunch break.

I was with a group of teens my age and we worked together in different exercises. The atmosphere was quite welcoming and friendly. We were led by volunteers. For example, in one exercise we learned about how to entertain kids of all ages with one piece of paper. We also practice CPR on test dummies. It was a bit difficult because we practiced on dummies of multiple ages from toddlers and babies to the elderly. I enjoyed meeting the other teens, working with them, and getting to know them along the way.

Good combination hands on and verbal training. The trainers are professional, and patient. Listen to questions, and will stay later to answer if necessary.
