Hear what folks are saying!

Just completed a fantastic Wilderness First Aid Course in Hope BC alongside the confluence of the Mighty Fraser and the Coquihalla Rivers. Class time was balanced well with outdoor settings and hands on experiential learning. The atmosphere was very supportive with good humour and smiles all around (even in the rain!). The mix of teaching styles ensured that all levels and types of learners absorbed and retained key information. Such a great way to learn skills and build confidence for personal hiking/backpacking/outings, as well as prep for taking groups into the outdoors. With Dave we were in good hands!
