Our First Event

When you do a course with Donegal Safety
Training Solutions you really are “in safe hands”.
1st class at pediatric first aid. Thoroughly enjoyed and feel confident if I ever come into any situation, I may need to use these practices.
Excellently delivered and fully informative course. All participants were kept engaged and encouraged to ask questions throughout.
I recently completed the IHF- Heart Saver course with Aiden, I found the course very interesting and engaging. Training was provided to a very high standard while adhering to Covid guidelines, which enabled all participants to feel at ease. Aiden facilitated the training in a friendly, approachable manner which encouraged all participants to interact and learn through practical experience.
I needed to do training in order for my partner to be discharged from hospital. I called Aiden and he went above and beyond to help us. He came to my home the very next day. He was professional in his role while also being very sensitive and understanding of our situation. He was reassuring, I felt confident after completing Irish Heart Foundation Training. I would highly recommend Aiden from DSTS.
