I have participated in two wilderness first aid training courses with Momenta, one hosted at my field research station and one at the Momenta office. Both courses were delivered with a perfect combination of leadership, patience, clarity, real-world examples, practical experience, good humour, and sincerity. The course contains a somewhat daunting amount of information, but the precise, organized delivery by Momenta staff meant that my colleagues and I could easily take in the information and put the practical skills to use. I feel more prepared to deal with emergencies in the field, having taken these courses!Lee Hrenchuk, MSc, Senior Biologist, IISD Experimental Lakes Area
Momenta’s instructors are incredible. As a student, I was fully engaged in the course material and walked away feeling super confident and excited to apply the skills I had learned in the field. Ten out of ten!-Caleigh Christie, Research Assistant, Churchill Northern Studies Centre
