I took this course as a refresher. As a Navy Corpsman I was a certified EMT and really wanted to maintain this skill set. So i used this as a refresher before my NRT. It was exactly what I needed.

Taking this course turned out to be more enlightening and interesting than I anticipated. Every topic was taught with so much details and I really appreciate the efforts of the tutors who simplified everything. The lecture notes also were very comprehensible. I'm glad I took the course. Thank you.

An excellent course with great instructors! I enjoyed the presentations which were easily understandable! The full spectrum of 'basics' seems to have been covered with more advanced training on the same topics in future courses of the specialization, I believe. "Wow, I learned a lot!"

I found t extremely user friendly the video cips of 4 - 8 minutes are just the right length.

Though I must qualify this statement by stating that for me this is a refresher of knowledge learnt as a first responder with St John Ambulance
