Hear what folks are saying!

 I would just like to compliment Dave on a well-organized and informative session, which made for a great learning experience.  Dave's mix of hand’s on activities (letting us try and fail first) and his resulting humour were much appreciated.  He also gave us insight into some aspects of first aid not in field guide – the reasons of how and why various procedures are carried out.   Overall, I now feel a lot more comfortable in how I might deal will an incident in the field.  I am sure my geology students at VIU will appreciate it one day!
