The course was extremely well done. The guides did an amazing job going over the topics, and defining what was important. They also expanded on existing techniques and provided real world examples and life lessons to support what does and doesn’t work.

Amazing couple of instructors. I worked as a guide, instructor and cruise director and know a good, enthusiastic, professional instructor when I see one. These guys couldn’t have been any better, what an asset to AAI. The way they worked together kept us all interested, excited and hungry for more knowledge!
