Lillooet & District Rescue Society Training Coordinator
Peter worked with our rescue chief to stay consistent to our training while still teaching us new things on our Roadside Rescue course. Peter was able to work with the tools we already had.
Rick Huck
Fulltime Firefighter, Lieutenant
Scott was a great Instructor and made all feel very comfortable. We had a mixed bag of students, from firefighters, environment workers and a contractor. I would recommend Raven Rescue to anyone who wants to learn about ice rescue. Once again, GREAT course and instructor. Thanks so much.
James Dougherty
US Air Force
We really couldn't have asked for more in a two week period - the amount and quality of training we received was like nothing I've seen before. I have been going on training trips usually twice a month for the last 4 years and this was by far the best I have been to.

James Teksey
Engineering Technician
Thyren was great, he certainly moved us out of our comfort zones in order to build our confidence, and he did so with great enthusiasm. The training provided us with the essential skills and confidence required to complete our work. Since the training was completed, we have run Little Jackpine Rapids twice, with confidence, enthusiasm and without incident.
Cheri Frocklage
Tahltan Fisheries Program Manager
I appreciated the new swiftwater skills and methods that have been improved upon, and learning the new methods that are being taught. Walter is the best instructor ever - like a member of the family. He is knowledgable, and keeps things simple.
Stefanie van Huystee
Biologist, Alberta Conservation Association
What a great course you and your crew put on for us – as a greenhorn, I expected to learn a lot, and I did. Your instructors did an excellent job catering to every skill level, were extremely knowledgeable, and I walked away with a lot more confidence!

Brad Danielson
University of Alberta
Our instructor was excellent. He obviously knew the material inside-and-out, and could run the class as a set of discussions and ongoing hands-on examples, vs. running off a set of powerpoint slides. He's a breathing encyclopedia of wilderness First Aid, with a lot of first-hand field experience. Raven Rescue and Wilderness Medical Associates has the "wilderness" perspective of First Aid training really dialed in. This did not feel like Standard FA with wilderness considerations thrown in as an add-on - these guys understand and take seriously the type of remote field work that we geo-scientist types do in places like the northern territories.
Gavin Williams
Wilderness Leadership Program, Capilano University
Well taught and informative class. The Instructor was a whitewater wizard!
Steve Ruskay
Coordinator, Blackfeather Wilderness Adventures' guide training program
We really appreciated Dan researching new information for the benefit of my crew and the objectives of Blackfeather. He went out of his way to enhance the experience for us.
