I loved the scenarios that we were placed in throughout the course, it made me think outside of the box and taught me how to react-it was a great introduction to first-aid and even better introduction to wilderness first-aid.

I’ll never say “I’m JUST heading out for a day hike” without remembering everything I learned this past weekend about safety and first aid. Prevention is easy, rescue is not. Thank you Alison and John! Your enthusiasm and knowledge made the WFRA course incredibly fun, and I cannot wait to come back for the Advanced!

Thank you again for a memorable weekend Alison! I’ve enjoyed every minute, and I feel much more confident … I always love retelling the scenarios to everyone!
Sincere thanks to both Alison & John – a superb two days, focusing on true priorities
I just wanted to thank you for running such an excellent course over the last two weekends. I enjoyed your course, your style of instruction and I thought that you had the right balance between theory and practical assessments. I will be recommending fellow kayakers to take first aid courses with you.

A very good location for this course because it was private and remote. The instructor used the location fully and was effective in time management and presentation. Very well done!

Awesome course Alison & John! Loved the creativity invested into the scenarios; it helped me build much more confidence.
Thank you for another spectacular class Alison! It is always such a joy taking classes with you. And as always, John was wonderful as well!
So many scenarios, amazing enthusiastic instructors, very knowledgeable, welcoming – a fantastic weekend, thank you!
The instructor Allison is very knowledgeable and possessed a mildly diabolic sense of humor as well as a gift for getting the point across in her presentations and challenging scenarios. I came away with renewed confidence in my first-aid skills and a tuned up CPR certification.
