I would just like to thank you and your team for last evenings training. Once again Roger was his excellent self and made the time fly by. Warren was full of useful information and very professional. As a health and safety manager I attend a lot of courses and do not particularly like doing them in the evening but your team made it more than bearableAshley Williamson

Your instructor was really good. He had a great instructing persona and was able to cater for all the different capabilities of the class. Well impressed and enjoyed what could have been a boring class.

McDonald Equipment Ltd – Wanganui 
I just want to comment on our course yesterday run by Roger in Wanganui. I have over the years attended about 3 of these courses and that was by far the best one yet. Roger was very good indeed. He was totally into it himself and his enthusiasm and self-confidence carried through. He engaged with everyone and was totally professional. He kept the whole day alive unlike others I have attended that were really quote boring with presenters that just did what they had to do. He used the white board to enhance his points really well. He also ensured everyone was where he needed them to be before moving along. It was a pleasure to attend such a seminar. Regards Avon McDonald. Managing Director

We have used Links Training for all our staff First Aid requirements and re-validation course for many years. We find the staff knowledgeable, up to date with all changes and our staff really enjoy their participation in the course. We use it as a team building evening and have a shared dinner during the training which helps lift all our spirits. Very happy to recommend them to other schools who wish to keep their staff with a valid First Aid Certificate.
Linda Sherlock. Deputy Principal Waiopehu College.

I thought the course was excellent. The instructor was the best I've had yet, and I can honestly say now it all makes so much sense and I’m 2000% confident that should I encounter a situation where my first aid knowledge is required I will have no trouble providing it. Everyone I spoke to said they were pleased someone could make an otherwise rather unexciting topic actually rather interesting and clear.

NZRC Core Training 
I have had wonderful feedback about the day, with some attendees going as far to say that they "really enjoyed it". Their trepidation obviously left them at the door.

Cancer Society First Aid Training 
On behalf of the Cancer Society Central Districts Division our thanks and sincerest appreciation to our wonderful trainer on the day. We all found him incredibly enlightening and gave a new meaning to First Aid Training as I have known it. We were kept engaged and found it a joy to participate to the very end of the day.Many thanks Sheryll
