The course was interesting and enhanced my knowledge of medical terms.
I enjoyed the scenarios as I got better understanding of what to do in case of emergency.
I was extremely impressed with the structure of the course and the level of expertise of Wayne Lee and Dr. Kevin Chan, both instructors have exceptional teaching abilities, they managed to provide an informative, thorough and entertaining lesson for the duration of the course. Having experienced many Dive Training facilities in both the recreational and commercial side I was also very impressed with the comfortable and professional surroundings of your classroom settings/Office area.
I enjoyed all hands on & drills. Shows you what can and will happen in real cases. Very well done.
Wayne is a great teacher. His medical experience shows through in his teaching.
