What students say

I'd be done learning. But noooooo!
It was a wonderful class.
Once again, I learned a lot (albeit, flat on my back, very wet ground underneath me, snow falling on my face, my would-be rescuers apparently unaware that hypothermia would kill me way before a closed fracture...). WTC is a great class for participants. WFAC is the best of all possible classes for leaders. " - Ron C.
