I can’t say enough about this course. It was fun, Andrea was a delight, and it hit everything my team needed to go “feet in the water”. If there was 10 stars, I would give it. Dianne T., Director of Rehabilitation.


If you can’t get in the water to train, this is the next-best thing. Video was so helpful, I wanted to laminate the entire manual, and the instructor was engaging. Leslie K., aquatic PT
