COURSE TESTIMONIALS

STUDENT/EMPLOYER TESTIMONIALS

 

The Snowcat and Survival Training was eye opening. In the past we just hauled a** up the hill. Now we take the right precautions to survive a few nights out in extreme conditions. The Safety One instructors were very helpful and shared true life experiences. My fellow employees who have not yet taken this course will be doing so early next year.
