Best fall protection course I have been in.
Thank you very much, awesome instruction and a fun course.
Jason was a fantastic and knowledgeable instructor who made sure no one was left with unanswered questions.
Hands down the best fall protection course I’ve ever done. Not dry and boring. Instructor was very funny.
Found the course exceptionally well presented and would not only recommend it but advocate for making it mandatory to many a mom and pop shop operation that buy safety gear for only one job and then it sits for years until the next dangerous job. In reality, safety guidelines are common sense reminders but we all need reminders to keep us safe and a few points were not known so I really appreciated it.
The instructor was knowledgeable and well spoken. I felt the material and delivery of knowledge was very impressive as far as informing the class. I have taken fall arrest/restraint courses in the past and comparing this instructor to past instructors I would say he is very professional. Nice delivery.
Course content was engaging and interesting as well as extremely informative and reinforced the need for fall protection. Method of instruction was engaging and helped reinforce the material in a very effective manner.
Very thorough, effective learning experience!
Well presented – good speaker!

Peter was an extremely well prepared, knowledgeable teacher. He was ready for any and all questions. He made this course easy to follow and understand.

Peter was very informative and very knowledgeable. Made it easy to understand. Made the course fun and was one of the better courses I have taken. Instructor kept a very good pace and flow to the course.
I’m very new to the industry. As a sawmill worker, this course empowered me. A lot of new information for me on fall protection.
Hoisting class participants while in their harnesses is a very helpful exercise to demonstrate what it feels like to be suspended in a harness. Thanks for taking the time to do this.
I was really impressed with the level of knowledge. It answered many questions I had for fall protection.
Great instruction, great handouts, well informed. Thanks Peter!
