Thank you so much, absolutely brilliant format. No unnecessary scaremongering or trivial details, on the contrary, it was great to be encouraged to take action, even if you’re not 100% sure what to do, and still everything was definitely covered, through common sense, plain language, and good examples and videos. Miika’s own experiences were “refreshing” if you can say that about accidents, medical emergencies, etc., but they always bring a sense of reality, what really can and does happen in real life.
It was definitely also a plus that the tests were so-called section tests, I myself became hungry for more information as I read and listened, and I couldn’t stop, I kept greedily moving on from one section to the next, looking forward to the page when I could test myself again to see whether the lesson had been learned, and it had 🙂
I warmly recommend the course to everyone, from painters to nurses and even those dentists!
Keep safe! Johanna Vaalikivi
