Some Course Evaluation Comments

Back in November, True North ran a training program for Venture Outdoors, an outdoors non-profit based in Pittsburgh, for its staff and volunteer trip leaders.  The goal was to help prepare them to better handle emergencies during their various trips by giving them a real-world scenario to utilize their Wilderness First Aid (WFA) and CPR training.

Earlier this week, I saw the evaluations that Venture Outdoors had received from its participants.  Here are just some of the questions and what the participants had to write:

Did the provided training description match the activity?

It went beyond what we thought it would be.

How satisfied were you with the instructors?


Top notch, very qualified, very organized.

Excellent.  Have taken two other terrific classes with Erik before.

How comfortable were you with the material BEFORE participating in this workshop?

I thought that I knew what to expect until Erik threw us a curve ball and showed us how a bad situation could have, and should have, been handled.

How comfortable do you feel with the material AFTER participating in this workshop?

More self-confidence.

Rate your overall satisfaction with this outing.


Thank you!  Wonderful learning experience.

Great job, Erik and crew!

Thanks again to Venture Outdoors for allowing True North the opportunity to work with its people.  And a special thanks to Gordy, Greg, Sean and Matt of Foxwall EMS for providing their time and equipment!
