Robin Executive Director, Calgary Area Outdoor Council
Thank you for being so flexible and accommodating to the Outdoor Centre First Aid Recert group and me. Your efforts and kindness was much appreciated. The first aid course was the best course I have taken to date. Dave’s knowledge, teaching skills, and experience was professional, enjoyable and appreciated.
