How Can We Help You?

Not only are Dave and Brenda very knowledgeable, they have personal skills which make them excellent presenters. The many days we spent with them were pleasant, enlightening, and very worthwhile. I would highly recommend any courses that they offer to anyone interested in fantastic training in First Aid.
Jacqueline, Calgary Board of Education
Of particular note is the extensive training and experience of Rocky Mountain Adventure Medicine’s instructional staff. Their ability to develop meaningful and rich learning scenarios have benefited the Kamp Kiwanis staff people’s abilities to make sound and thoughtful responses and decisions in first aid situations.
Roy, Kamp Kiwanis
