This course is great no matter your level of medical expertise. Well-structured material and hands-on practice make it easy to learn, and the instructors are super knowledgeable and helpful.
The ITLS Blended course was excellent! I have learned so much from our instructor Christine who paced the course just right where you felt challenged but not overwhelmed.
The first part of the blended ITLS course was very helpful in preparing me for the second part which would be held in class
Great use of time!
