"Have worked with MRS for a number of years and always found the standard of administration and delivery of training to be excellent." Ingenico UK

"Absolutely amazing course, cover everything and the staff are amazing! They answer all questions and put it into real life." Fife Council 

"Not sure how to express my thanks. On Wednesday one of the lads on our shift suffered a full cardiac arrest, collapsing without warning. Neil was first to him with myself moments behind him, Neil started CPR whilst I got one of our defib machines. Another guy YOU trained arrived at this time and he called the ambulance. Through following your fantastic training, we carried out CPR and shocked him twice until we got him back to life, breathing with his heart going again. A first responder arrived at this time, closely followed by an ambulance. Barrie is in hospital now awaiting an operation to fit a defib in his chest!! But I have just received, as I type this, a notification from him!!!! You will never know how big a part you played in saving the life of a good mate of ours and I will never be able to thank you fully for giving us the skills and confidence to carry out the horrible task of pounding a friend’s chest. We have all passed on to the British Gypsum management team how big a part the training played in the saving of Barrie and I am pushing to get you in to train everyone on site in CPR. Thank you again from all of us but I guess mostly from Barrie." Dan Sollars, Production Shift Manager
