    Jason, I was originally certified by taking your Basic Wilderness First Aid Course Back on 9/23/17. So I want to Thank you Jason and your team!, The time, experience, in helping further educate others and myself. This Course, Bushcraft Hygiene and First Aid has been by far, the best method of learning, for me without being able to attend in person. This methodology of learning helps you retain the information, the course, the exercises, also using the video projects at the end of the course is a great finale, thanks again.
