I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the skills and knowledge that you passed onto me at the QPR training. The week following attending your programme I was able to assist in saving the life of a 14yr old girl. Without this training I’m not sure that things would have unfolded as straight forwardly as they did. I felt so empowered to know that I had done everything I could. Thank you thank you thank you
