What our customers say about our courses

Y. Y. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I’ve attended the First Aid and AED courses at a few providers before and while those were good, what they have at SERA is a whole lot better.

I attended their First Aid and AED refresher course and having attended others before, thought it would be pretty much the standard two day course. At the end of the two days however, I came away from it not only better educated but having really really enjoyed myself!   👍

Mark ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I had been to a few places for OFA course, but they were not well-equipped in managing people relationship. SERA has demonstrated as a leader in people-centric. They value my team, our goal for taking up the course and committed to see us through the course successfully. Kudos to you! SERA is indeed a 5 star rated institution. I will be back for more!!!   👍

Sally N. X. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We will like to thank SERA for the 3 days of First Aid and AED courses that were attended by our coaches. SERA management have been super helpful with our last minute request and giving us valuable feedback and updates. We are looking forward for more people to be certified and of course for those who have taken the certificates, we look forward to join back the class 2 years later, before the expiring of our existing certificates. 👍
