"Great course - lots of ground covered but with Rob's previous experience this becomes ever more impactful. Having done first aid before I can say I feel more confident and much clearer having done it again! Really worth doing"

From Richard Godfrey, course taken May 2019

"Very well presented course.

I have been on several previous first aid courses through my employers, but this is the first time the instruction seemed to relate to actual real life situations.

The course was delivered by Rob who has a lot of background in the medical field and this showed through with interesting stories of real life past events and techniques.

Thank you Rob and Cardiff Scuba once again for an excellent course"

From Kitt Kendell, course taken May 2019

"A very good course to take for anyone - not just divers.

I have just completed the First Responder Course, and found it more challenging than I thought it would be. However very much enjoyed it, with all the knowledge that Rob brings into it as well.

A big thanks to Rob for his time and patience with me.

From Alan Nugent, course taken May 2018

"Just completed a refresher course with Rob at Cardiff Scuba.

Unbelievably helpful and professional as always. Really builds confidence to learn with someone with such an in depth knowledge of the subject and so much practical experience.

Diolch Rob,

From Huw Evans, course taken June 2015

"Yet another absolutely brilliant course provided by Cardiff Scuba. Rob's background in the medical arena really added a huge amount to the content of the EFR and helped to really improve my confidence and understanding on the material and skills required. Many thanks to Rob, on to the PADI Rescue Course we go! :-)"

From Gareth Rogers, course taken May 2013

"Ive just completed the EFR course and found it informative and helpful. This course was an eye opener, adjoined with the medical knowledge that the instructor had, it made learning not only easier but helped us understand better.

Are you thinking of doing this course? Cardiff Scuba is the only place to do it..
(Many thanks to Rob)."
