Really great course that's paced well. I believe this is a course everyone should and CAN take! These things are important to know especially if you live in an area where disasters are prone.
grateful to have this kind of Course in here while having sponsor. Most important course because it teaches the basic surviving skills and safety during disaster. likewise, Safety First!

It was a good course. There were a couple of mistakes in the text and also between the text and quiz. The last two I remember are in Lesson 5 the presenter from Japan stated for DMAT. "Actually I participated in the medical care for the Great East Japan Earthquake as a member of the Japanese DMAT, Disaster Management Assistance Team which is quite different from the American DMAT." The problem was in the quiz that was not an option, it did have "Disaster Medical Assistance Team", which of course is the correct answer and was in his slide. Another was in Lesson 6 where Michael states, "Third, the triage person will check how fast the victim is breathing. If over 30 breaths per minute and they may not need to count, if it's fast, they will know. They will tag the victim as red. If it's less than 30, they will check perfusion, or blood flow." Of course, when he goes and states "If it's less than 30." he's actually talking about Stage Four and not three. It was in the slides and any new students would be wise to save the slides to refer to for any quizzes, the text can be tricky. The only other piece was the assignment, if going to be reviewed by other students, it should have something showing if they left a response or not. I spent a good 20 minutes looking for their responses (there weren't any). As stated I liked the course otherwise, Lesson 6 was good to understand how the Triage system works that I didn't know about. Cheers.

There is political propaganda on a Required Reading, this and another "facts" that are myths like the twinkies expiration dates. Some good advices but the course need some revision

It was a very good basic course. It relied to much on FEMA and help coming.

Course is incredibly basic- if you have any survival background I am sorry to tell you that you probably won't learn much new and will be disappointed by the material. The lessons themselves are incredibly bland (Instructor Beach basically is just talking in front of a plain blue background the entire time- don't be fooled by the intro making it seem like he is out and about showing you practical scenarios), the material is outdated and does not include modern technology/alternative energy sources (i.e. when discussing light batteries are essentially the only recommended source of power when in fact you can easily and cheaply obtain more reliable methods like crank, shake, solar- even rechargeable lithium batteries you could charge via a USB solar pack connected to portable solar panel!). If you have absolutely no experience with disaster and zero knowledge of preparedness then this course might be for you. Unfortunately it was a major let down for me and material that should be relevant and interesting I found to be too basic to even really be considered a good refresher...

The peer assignment could have been made a lot easier by just requiring that we submit a .pdf or Word document with all of the stipulated prompts. Having to enter each detail in separate boxes, and not being able to copy-paste tables only made the whole thing confusing and cluttered.

This is definitely a needed course for all those, who were panic-buying toilet paper! The international perspective video was interesting, but the rating is given due to non-academic approach and very poor production value throughout.

This course was interesting but seemed to be overly anecdotal and based on opinions
