By far the most comprehensive and well delivered medical training I have ever received. It was hands on and full on from the very start and what, at first, seemed like an impossibly large syllabus was broken down and taught with adroit accuracy and professionalism. It is very evident that the Frontier Risks courses are borne from the practical application of the skills covered in the training and actual in-the-field experience. We had top of the range training aids, and course facilities and the instructors were extremely knowledgeable and dynamic. It was obvious that they knew above and beyond what they were teaching so asking questions and seeking a deeper understanding of the ‘why’s’ as well as the ‘how’s’ was made easy. I really enjoyed the week and would happily repeat the course just for the experience and confidence gained. I feel much more comfortable in confronting medical emergencies in remote areas now. Thank you, Frontier Risks!
