Roy Scully Wilderness & Remote First Aid, Courtenay, BC More Testimonials

Great instructor. Presented the material in an angaging way. I know he noticed that people were fading on the second day so he got everyone to stand quick and do something. Much more engaging than other first aid courses I’ve taken.
