Finns West came to our lodge in Belize and administered the 3 day Wilderness First Aid course for my guides, Boat Captain and myself. The course was presented in a fun, informative and very hands-on way which was both impactful and engaging. Not only did we learn a lot, but had a great time doing it. We found this course to be really useful for real-world scenarios / emergencies that could happen to us while flats fishing. In addition to learning the First Aid required for the certification, I found the course to have the added benefit of being a team builder for our lodge/guides. We finished the course as a stronger team. Thank you Finns West. I look forward to working with you again on our re-certification!
Hands down the most relevant first aid course I have even taken. The hands-on scenarios combined with the critical thinking aspects of the Finns West course has prepared myself and my staff for any situation we may face while in the field with our clients.
Positively the best course I’ve ever taken and the smartest preemptive move we’ve made at The Broadmoor Fly Fishing Camp.
I’ve been working as a guide and outfitter my whole life, and I have taken more first aid courses than I can remember. Nothing has been more practical and better purposed for my line of work than the course Finns West put together for my team of guides in the Bahamas. Focusing on the practical real world events me and my guides will likely encounter in our careers it was money and time well spent and I would strongly encourage all lodges and guides to jump on board.
