Testimonial from a previous learner:

 “I’m a nurse and I attended your training in Bagnelstown, Co. Carlow Ireland in May 2018. First let me say that the training I received was invaluable to me. I was already taking blood but following your training course my technique improved enormously and my success rate for obtaining blood is just about 100% and I’m thrilled.

Can’t thank you enough for this training, it has been invaluable to me”
