I found the training very educational and quiet interesting. I wanted to spend more time in it. I love the questions after each session, which made the final exam much easier. I would love to continue with the Diploma level 2.

I'm so glad I signed up for Paedatric First Aid.  I had been on 4 different interviews but parents said they wanted a nanny who had some academic knowledge.  Once I told them I was earning a certificate with International Nanny, I was quickly offered a job!
- Nicole Boyd, Paediatric First Aid
I was able to do the whole program from my tablet which was good because I work a lot and have a long commute time. I liked that I could take my time and finish it when I had the time so there wasn't any pressure. Also, the parents I work for were happy that I have more training.
