    I'm working Sat. but it is a great course! I have heard of Josh, I hear he gives a great lecture with hands on.

    I recommend it for anyone, it is more than basic first-aid.:thumbup:

    Can't make this one but I have the site bookmarked and will go with my wife and maybe a few buddies in the future.. I've taken two First aid courses in the past, including a college level course, but this should be a step up !
