Chris has a natural talent for teaching and is very knowledgeable. Also appreciated an excellent mustache.
"I enjoyed myself and feel I learned a lot. Thank you very much for your humour and passion."
Great combination of teaching and learning as well as handson information. I learned a lot. Thank you!!
Both instructors were excellent - confident, capable, efficient and humorous. This is the best first aid course I've ever taken due to awesome instructors and practical content. Thank you!
Enjoyed the course – Mike’s humour well appreciated. I’d recommend others to this program. Thanks.
The course was great and was the third first aid course I have taken and it was by far the best experience and I am way more confident now! Thanks!
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.
Nathan was literally amazing. Super enthusiastic the whole time and just really cheery and positive.
Awesome instructor - super enthusiastic and funny! I definitely recommend the course.
A good course with excellent instruction. Mike’s teaching style is engaging, supportive and candid. I feel better prepared heading into the wilderness setting with new skills & knowledge.
