What clients say about us

Let me stress our instructor’s infectious enthusiasm – he succeeded in making first aid classes fun, educational, relevant and professional, while involving every participant in the process. And that’s no small task!
Covering sensitive topics in a light setting where humor has its place requires lots of talent, even more so in a videoconference setting.

What clients say about us

Here is what I like about Santinel: professional service, personalized follow-up, instructors who listen to our concerns… It happened that I called to plan last-minute classes or to discuss a topic I didn’t know how to address. Each time, I felt like the person on the line was truly listening to my needs and provided complete information and valuable solutions.
