“Excellent class. The instructors knew what they were talking about. Even there was a lot of information crammed into two days, Phong and Kate made the class enjoyable and easy to learn.”

“I took a WFA class in spring of 2008 and loved it. It was fun and helpful, with a great deal of hands-on practice. The instructors were fabulous, both fun and confidence inspiring. I enjoyed it so much that I’m thinking of taking the WFR course. This course is completely worth the time and money.”

“I’ve been a working outdoor professional for a long time, and have attended a number of these types of trainings (from EMT-W, WFR, and WFA), and I have to say this is a great course. In two days it hit all of the high points and had great hands-on components.”
