Just doing the 3 day course. On day 2. Downloaded this app. Brilliant! Just gone through the test. Was very proud of how good I did. Gave me great confidence for day 3.

Having taken a Red Cross course several years ago,just as a member of the public, I sit and read through this as a refresher every 6 months or so and use the 'Test Yourself' option. I think it would be easy enough for anyone to gain valuable knowledge from that they may need one day.👍
