In the middle of my EMR course still, but it's easy to see how solid the instructor is and how good they are at directing a class. Looking forward to the remainder of the class!!

I came across St. John Ambulance at the Outdoor and Adventure Travel Show and was reminded that it's about time I get recertified!!! 6 years ago I took the training with St. John Ambulance and a lot has changed since then. Chris was an amazing instructor! Was very happy with the training 😀
