He was excellent at tailoring the course and scenarios to what this company works with. Very hands on, lots of outside time learning by doing. His teaching style is excellent, very structured, fun and dynamic. He is realistic and teaches us how to use what equipment we actually take on tours, rather than expecing us to carry huge first aid kits, he taught us how to improves and use what we have or what nature has. He inspired the company to run their own work shops a few times a year to keep our skills fresh and 'alive'. He teaches well to a group but also has the patient's and skill to explain extra things to individuals if its needed. The courses are also super fun and a good way to get employees together and work as a team. All in all it was awesome and I'm looking forward to the new course. cheers Si your a champ!
