    Very well done class.

    Not my favorite speaker… But good couse

    I really enoyed this course, I thought the instructor was well informed about the material he covered and was logical and sequential for good comprehension and learning. I was hoping to get more info on hand taping for sports as I also coach girls basketball as well as work with industrial injuries that often benefit from soft, inexpensive support. I wonder if an athletic trainer’s taping techniques for the upper extremity might be an idea for a video course. I do enjoy the wide range of courses you offer and although I pay for them out of my own pocket, I find the courses valuable both in terms of skill building and investment. Thanks for all!

  4. Betty Yuyuenyongwatana

    This was my first time purchasing a course from Live Conferences. I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the course. I learned a lot . I would recommend chaptering/indexing further. The shoulder section was very long and it was time consuming to find a section again. Thank you for providing a cost effective and quality course. I would definitely consider another course.
