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.
Dave N., Kayak Guide & Instructor
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!
… the best first aid course I have ever done … It was great to be so active, interactive and hands on all day. The scenarios we did … were brilliant. I would definitely take another course from you and will recommend it to others. You are an exceptional instructor, really a natural – your enthusiasm is infectious.
Glenda D., Oceanographer, Marine First Aid
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
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!

I learned so much about first aid and also leadership, which I wasn’t expecting. Great teachers, great course!
You were knowledgeable and challenged everyone to do better, and even if we got things wrong, you made us feel comfortable discussing and communicating it. I felt tested but safe.

Great weekend! The combination of training methods – scenarios, observing, leading …. Very charismatic & knowledgeable instructors!
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!
