    Ian is extremely passionate and a subject matter expert on all things Life Support Technician related. His teaching style is very easy follow and he is able to break down complex physics and procedures into very easy to follow lessons. I’ve learnt a lot and will surely be back when i do my LST exam.

    I started the course a bit worried ’cause my english isn’t good yet and a lot of mathematics, physics and medicine was waiting for me.
    Ian has been beside me every day 24/7 in summer time . Everytime I got difficulties he was there ready to support me.
    E-learning is a new and good way to get all infomations about the disciplines, you can study and practice when and where you want.
    Daily lactures are fantastic!!!! Ian is a very professionist, frendly Doctor!
    Thanks a lot for yours support!

    The course material is absolutely excellent and I feel I gained a great knowledge about what it takes to become an ALST.
    The course teaches you how to prepare for the LST exam down the road, and what it will take to be successful. Ian’s first hand experience and background in Medicine and Hyperbarics provide you with an excellent resource for information.
    All the best, Adam
