    "First Aid For Free is much, much more extensive than other websites out there. It covers everything from CPR, to how to use an AED unit, to dogbites, and even child-specific first aid techniques. The courses are laid out in easy-to-tackle sections and each course has quite a lot of material. There's a section dedicated to commonly asked questions, and another for resources as well. The whole site is simple, easy to use, and jam-packed with information. "

    "As someone who was looking for basic bandaging and other minor first aid, this video series is a little above my head. I will be recommending it to my friend who's thinking about becoming an EMT though, because I love the guys accent!"

    "While this website shows me what objects I need to physically put into a first aid kit, it does not show me how to do First Aid. I am unable to see or learn how to do first aid from this resource. "
