"The Pacific Alpine Institute has developed a customized ten hour course for our Outdoor Leadership Program. Teaching youth in a classroom is never easy and the instructors rose to the challenge! They adapted their teaching techniques and materials to make the learning fun, hands-on and relevant. They allowed us to participate and have a say in the course content. They were flexible and always positive."
Michele Desjardins, Program coordinator and teacher,
Outdoor Leadership Semester Program, Don Ross Secondary School, Howe Sound School District

“The Pacific Alpine Institute has been running the first aid training and OEC refreshers for our company for over 5 years now. We are very pleased with the level of instruction, the revolving curriculum and the adaptable approach to our specific first aid needs as a heli-skiing company.”

Thanks Pacific Alpine Institute for the great Outdoor Emergency Care first aid refresher! The changes in the assessments make a lot of sense. Alex's explanation of the heart rhythms with respect to the AED was really clear, the whole class was "I get it now". The lesson on the heart was very helpful, I have a much better understanding on the effects of medications on the patient's presentation and possible complications. "

"Thank you again Pacific Alpine Institute for organizing such a great Outdoor Emergency Care refresher for the WB volunteer patrollers. It was great to see everybody and to put some ideas clear before the season really kicked off. The instructor were, as usual, all great and it was a real pleasure to get to participate in this refresher! "

"I attended the Pacific Alpine Institutes' OEC refresher in November 2017. All instructors were knowledgeable and engaging. The course content was applicable, interesting and delivered in a way that was easy to understand. Thanks for putting on a great course! I can't think of anything that could be approved upon...."
