“This course gave me much more detail than previous WFA trainings. I appreciated the video accompaniments to the text, as hearing the material reinforced what was written. I do wish temperatures and measurements were given in non-metric terms, or both metric and non-metric terms. The supplemental materials were helpful. Diagrams to illustrate reduction of dislocations and splinting methods would add clarity on these topics. Course needs proofreading for typos.”
