Really great course that's paced well. I believe this is a course everyone should and CAN take! These things are important to know especially if you live in an area where disasters are prone.

It was a good course. There were a couple of mistakes in the text and also between the text and quiz. The last two I remember are in Lesson 5 the presenter from Japan stated for DMAT. "Actually I participated in the medical care for the Great East Japan Earthquake as a member of the Japanese DMAT, Disaster Management Assistance Team which is quite different from the American DMAT." The problem was in the quiz that was not an option, it did have "Disaster Medical Assistance Team", which of course is the correct answer and was in his slide. Another was in Lesson 6 where Michael states, "Third, the triage person will check how fast the victim is breathing. If over 30 breaths per minute and they may not need to count, if it's fast, they will know. They will tag the victim as red. If it's less than 30, they will check perfusion, or blood flow." Of course, when he goes and states "If it's less than 30." he's actually talking about Stage Four and not three. It was in the slides and any new students would be wise to save the slides to refer to for any quizzes, the text can be tricky. The only other piece was the assignment, if going to be reviewed by other students, it should have something showing if they left a response or not. I spent a good 20 minutes looking for their responses (there weren't any). As stated I liked the course otherwise, Lesson 6 was good to understand how the Triage system works that I didn't know about. Cheers.

It was a very good basic course. It relied to much on FEMA and help coming.

The peer assignment could have been made a lot easier by just requiring that we submit a .pdf or Word document with all of the stipulated prompts. Having to enter each detail in separate boxes, and not being able to copy-paste tables only made the whole thing confusing and cluttered.
