  • 5 star review  I have taken 2 different CPR courses with Jill and she is a funny, engaging and compelling instructor who knows how to clearly present her material. Thanks also for the theory, visual demos, and hands-on practice - you made sure we got it right before we left! Always a great teacher, thanks so much! 🙂

    5 star review  My husband and I attended the infant/toddler CPR course and found it extremely helpful. Holly was a wealth of knowledge and covered a variety of topics. I felt well-informed rather than overwhelmed. I would highly recommend the course to any couple with young children and/or caregivers. Worth every penny!

  • positive review  I attended the 2 hour course in Salmon Arm yesterday. I am the Nana of infants and toddlers and was grateful to be able to attend a course in our community. It was most helpful! The course moved at a good pace, with time for questions and practice. Jill was knowledgable, energetic and respectful. I recommend this course.

    5 star review  Took the 2 hr infant/cpr class on March 11th at Nurture Collective in Parksville. The material was comprehensive, taught at a good pace with opportunities for questions, and allowed for lots of repetition and practice to create muscle memory. The teacher was experienced, knowledgeable and able and answer all questions asked. My Mom attended and had physical limitations that required modifications of nearly procedures and advice was provided for each. I would definitely recommend this for caregivers of young children.

    5 star review  We wanted to learn some basic first aid skills before the arrival of our first baby, and Holly and Safe Beginnings First Aid class was exactly what we were looking for. She covers the basics from CPR to safe preventative practices around the house, and has excellent cues and descriptions to help you remember the tips, skills and techniques. I would recommend this to anyone with kids, expecting children, or wanting a refresher on first aid skills.

    positive review  So glad my husband and I took this course. Holly is an engaging instructor who is passionate about infant safety and was great at giving us time to practice techniques and understand the why behind what we were doing. Will definitely recommend this course to all my momma friends.

    positive review  We booked a private class for a group of friends and the caregivers of our children. The class was incredibly informative and gave us the confidence we needed to care for our children (and other adults!) in the scariest of instances. Holly’s passion and depth of knowledge kept us engaged the entire class. Every parent or caregiver NEEDS to take this class! Could not recommend it more.

  • 5 star review  I took Safe Beginning's First Aid course specifically for doulas over the weekend. Jill is obviously very knowledgeable and relayed her expertise in an easy to follow and practical manner. There was lots of practical skills taught and we also had the opportunity to practice on each other and infant dolls. It was a great course and when I need to recertify, I'll look to Safe Beginnings first!

    positive review  As a first time grandma I am so glad I went. Very informative and not just about infant first aid. I left feeling more confident in being able to assist with CPR and what to do with adults/babies choking. Everyone should start with this course.

    positive review  Highly recommend for anyone without formal first aid training. Holly demonstrates a passion for safety and teaching. She was engaging and delivered the course material quickly and clearly. I left with the ability and confidence to handle an emergency situation; or better yet, to hopefully prevent one in the first place.

  • 5 star review  We completed the CPR course today and left feeling confident with the skills we took away with us. Holly knows her stuff and is passionate about what she does. She teaches in a way that is straight to the point and easy to follow. I have already recommended this to my mom friends and will continue to do so!

    5 star review  I took Holly’s 2 hour infant/toddler CPR course this past week and brought my 6 month old son with me. Holly was an amazing instructor that went over repetition and personal stories which helped to make the information memorable. I feel confident that I could help an adult or child who was in need of CPR or choking. Many different scenarios were brought up in the course as well as other safety aspects including prevention of poisoning, burns, baby sleep, car seat safety which I’m thankful to have learnt!

    5 star review  Great and thorough training! Holly has been fabulous and went above and beyond to help us prepare for the safety of our child. The CPR and car seat safety lesson gave us reassurance and answered many of our questions. Highly recommended not just for first time parents but all parents and grandparents.

  • 5 star review  I took the four hour infant/toddler first aid and CPR class and it was awesome! It gave me confidence knowing that if an emergency situation arose with my little ones, I would know what to do (rather than panic!). Thank you!

    5 star review  This was a wonderful course! There was a lot of information to learn in two hours but Holly made it easy to understand and fun. I feel much more confident starting solids with my baby now! Holly also checked my car seat for me after the class and discovered it has a recalled part! I’m very happy I took this course.

  • 5 star review  I did a course with Holly this weekend. She is very knowledgeable and the class is very engaging. I really enjoyed myself and left feeling like I had learned a lot. I would definitely recommend the non-certified CPR/choking course to any parents or anyone who will be working or spending a lot of time with kids!

    5 star review  My husband and I took the course this past week at Buy Buy Baby in Langley. Holly was very personable and professional and covered a lot of relevant information in the 2 hours. I found her very knowledgable, often citing current research and standards while also drawing on her own experience as a mom. I had re-taken my WorkSafe BC OFA Level 1 last year but wanted something more focused on infant care as we are expecting our first soon. I'm really glad we took this course. I found the explanations really resonated for me and the practicality was appreciated. Holly went over and above, we received an email info package before the course so I didn't feel pressure to take notes and remember everything. I would definitely recommend taking this course!
