Hear what folks are saying!

Hello Ridge Wilderness,

I took the wilderness first aid course with Adam this past weekend in Kamloops. I just wanted to pass along how well he ran the course. He was always so positive and encouraging, even when we felt we were panicking in scenarios and perhaps not following precisely the steps in the book, he was very positive about the steps we took. It definitely gives you the confidence to think that if I actually did get into this situation everything would go okay.

Thanks very much for the course.
