SMARTT came to our school and delivered ‘Emergency first aid in the work place’ to all our Sixth Form students.  The students thoroughly enjoyed the day and took a lot away from it.  Delivery was excellent, it was well organised and tutors kept the students engaged throughout.  I would definitely recommend SMARTT to any organisation.  Fantastic and thanks!!
