[Rich] did a great job of explaining the materials and did a great job of having us all work through the processes several times to make sure we understood it. He did well in evaluating everyone’s knowledge while continuing to instruct new material. 

I do not have any suggestions for improvement as it was all more than I expected it to be.
I would highly recommend this course to others interested in this type of knowledge.

Thank you for a great [Rappel Master] course and for all of the knowledge passed on to us!

The instructor was full of knowledge and [the Rappel Master course] was taught in a way that I could learn (hands on). I liked that the class could be shifted to certain areas that we as a group wanted to learn which pertained to our profession (law enforcement).

I absolutely would recommend this course to others and have already told some coworkers about it.
