This is something I have always wanted to do, however I have never had the opportunity or time to schedule it in. However the end of my shark season at Seal Island ended early & I decided this would be a perfect time to do this wonderful course. I chose to do it at Ambutek in Milnerton, it is a small college with a great team of lecturers who are all well equipped with knowledge and passion for the industry. The course was run over five weeks comprising of theory and practical sessions, ending off with 3 days of examinations!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Ambutek and cannot believe the five weeks have flown by already! I stayed with a friend closer to the college so that I would not have to commute through the 2 hours of traffic back home each evening which was a lifesaver! I learnt huge amounts of information and more importantly I left with the knowledge and confidence of being able to treat and stabilize a patient in the public should I come across a situation where it was needed.
I came third highest in my class of 24 students. Getting 95% for theory, 93% for my oral, 100% for patient simulations and 100% for practical skills. Never in my life have I achieved such high marks. My marks clearly reflect the immense amount of enjoyed I had for the information learnt. It has empowered me more than I am able to describe.
I definitely will be looking into doing further courses, to enrich myself with such great and powerful knowledge that is forever useful to me.
A big thank you to Clint Cronning & Mishqah Williams for being such awesome lecturer’s making each lecture fun whilst still learning and absorbing the new information given.
