Stop The Bleed Course
I liked the straightforward style of the instructor. The material was presented smoothly. I wish there had been more time illustrating improvised tourniquet.
The instructor was amazing, and I enjoyed the hands-on experience. I feel more confident to help someone in an emergency if needed.
Levity, life experience and expanding beyond the expected or required knowledge base to provide additional insight on the “why” of certain physiological phenomena. It was great, and I learned a lot.
The instructor delivered information in a clear manner using terms appropriate for the training audience. Good use of examples, experiences, and humour to keep everyone engaged. Answered all questions thoroughly and professionally. I will be recommending the Stop the Bleed course to all my coworkers, family, and friends. I am also looking forward to taking more training with First Aid Plus.
