Thank you Brian for setting me up for this course. As a volunteer firefighter from Saskatchewan, the course fit perfectly for my needs. As a self-learner, it made the course that much more inviting. I plan to register for the Operations course, as soon as it becomes available. Regards Colin Musschoot
