“Having completed some basic first aid courses before, I felt Tom's explanation of scenarios and treatment made it much easier to remember. I now feel much more confident and am very clear on how these skills relate to a real life, outdoor setting. Thanks.”

It was extremely useful to do some homework from the manual before the course so receiving it in advance was great.  It is concise and relevant and the video clips are a great aid to learning and retaining skills.
