What our customers say…
I would like to thank you for the certificate and the outstanding provision and training provided throughout the BBE course. I was worried about my ability to complete the course via distance learning but the support and guidance by my tutor and the BBE Team was invaluable and the qualification provided me with a much better understanding for teaching first aid.
I would just like to say thank you to BBE for been very understanding of my situation with being deployed to the Falkland islands with the RAF. I have hit a few hurdles whilst trying to carry out the units mainly been communication and technical issues, but with Mary's help I have managed to over come most of these.
