What would you tell a colleague who asked about the Clinical First Responder Training?

"Find out when the next training is and make arrangements to go! The training solidified the techniques we use and how they are effective. It encouraged me to be more empathetic towards clients and introduced me to new techniques. The CFR pointed out the difficulties that come with this job and gave me tools on how to better refresh myself in the field and out. A great balance between fun and teaching!

"The tools that I feel I forged at the Clinical First Responder™ training have helped me become a more confident instructor.  I feel better equipped to handle situations that before I might have floundered in.  I had a student last week…there was a time on her solo that she was going downhill fast, and I feel that some of the training helped me see that and react in a way that she responded to amazingly well, and she turned into this rock star of a student. I feel very grateful to the experience and knowledge I gained while getting the CFR training."

Matt Anderson, Field InstructorSUWS
