05 February 2020 • Snake & Spider Bite First Aid

The two hour course was very interesting. The presenter was very knowledgeable but easy to understand. The course time could easily have been 30 mins longer to allow for consolidation of the information maybe a quiz to see how much info had been retained. The accompanying Castlemaine Community House Course Enrolment Form seemed a bit excessive for a one off two hour lecture. The time taken to enrol, pay , down load the enrolment form fill it in, scan it and return it plus the accompanying rate and review survey would easily take 40% of the short course time.
