Craig (July 2017)
I write following completion of the 2 day demystifying ECG course which was run by Claire Macaskill in Durham for the North East Ambulance Service.

I just wanted to take a moment to say that the course was absolutely fantastic. It was clear from the start of the course that Claire had an immense knowledge and experience of the subject, however from the start of the course and throughout its duration it was delivered in an very step by
step and supportive manner. The skill, experience and knowledge level of those attending the course was very varied but Claire managed to provide an all inclusive training session that involved every delegate providing lots of opportunity to reinforce learning and discuss aspects of the course.

Although many people had attended ECG courses previous to this session everyone I spoke to felt they learnt a lot from the course and commented on how good the training had been. A huge to thank you to Claire and all of your team for providing and facilitating such an immensely beneficial course.

Thanks and very best regards
