Fantastic and professional service with great detail of information.

Thank you RTS for providing CPR training that was up to date and evidence based. The use of modern resus mannequins with in-built indicators to guide correct application of resus techniques was really useful. The presenters were professional, approachable and knowledgeable. I would use your services again.
