      What are our students saying?

    • “The hands-on approach to learning in this course was incredibly helpful as well as realistic.” Along with learning to assess the scene and use deductive reasoning, participants learned the importance of removing a helmet from a victim and, thanks to video footage, have a better knowledge of what to expect from a seizure.
    • Dave, the instructor, was “incredibly knowledgeable and interactive.
    • The “hands on learning [was] awesome,” and some described the course as “informative, thorough and entertaining.”
    • One participant said the course “exceeded expectations,” while another noted that it has added to their knowledge of the subject: “I have taken first aid courses before; I have learned more and will remember more from this course.”
