A Student's Evaluation: WFA in Jacksonville, FL

I recently took a Wilderness First Aid course in Jacksonville, Florida. Phil Hart and Deane Hodde are without a doubt two of the most amazing instructors I have ever encountered. The evaluation sheet provided did not allow me to give the appropriate feedback these course instructors deserved.


I currently work as an industrial corporate photographer for Siemens in the Americas region. I enjoy taking various courses to gain experience in different fields while acquiring new skills . The various courses I have taken range from ACA Kayak/Canoe coaching, National Geographic Photography School to Critical Rescue workshops. All of these classes are beneficial since my job requires me to climb wind generator towers that are located in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean and in the mountains of Oregon and Washington. Of all the classes I have taken in the last 15 years, I have never met a team of teachers that compliment each other so well together. Not only was I impressed by the experience they brought to the class, but I was amazed at the overwhelming enthusiasm and commitment level they displayed throughout the week. I am convinced that there is no better way to learn than to simply enjoy what you are learning.  I wish that my certification was only good for 6 month instead of 2 years so that I would have an excuse to take the class again in the near future. I look forward to taking more courses with Landmark Learning!


Thank you for the experience,

Gil Hidalgo
