Course content was very helpful for a health care professional moving from a community setting to more acute health care. After the course I am feeling much more confident about the management of various life threatening conditions.

The instructions, Rick, was fantastic! Great at breaking down complex physiological processes and providing a structured process to manage traumatic injuries. Lots of great examples from his career, very personal, and provided simulations that helped bring it all together in a realistic way (without being intimidating)!

International Trauma Life Support (ITLS)

Excellent application of adult learning theory. Great use of practical examples. Incorporated and respected previous experiences of participants. Made for a smooth and fast paced course rather than a ‘death by power point’ approach. Would love to see this format replicated at future courses. The focus on skill station and application of trauma surveys made an enjoyable and practical course.
