Dawn is an excellent trainer and very passionate about first aid."

"I had wonderful training right from the theoretical part of it. Bestwest Care well equipped me for what’s ahead thus I came prepared. Practical placement went well as I was instilled confidence by my Bestwest Care trainers. The first week I was just observing but from there all the mentors showed me what needed to be done and they were supervising and teaching me all the way. Because of all these reasons I got employed where I completed my placement. I am forever grateful and forever indebted to the facility. Thank you a million times guys."
