Course feedback

Teresa Terry, Texas The workshop here in Houston was GREAT! Kyle did a fantastic job and I would recommend this workshop to everyone in the Orthopedic field.  I picked up many helpful ideas from Kyle and appreciate his patience.

Ken Ockunzzi, Florida Thank you so much Charles.  I had a great time at the course last week.  You really kept things interesting and fun.  I learned a bunch and had a good time doing it. 

Agnes Freeman, Chicago Can't wait to try out the new techniques I learned this weekend.  I thank you so much for the extra time you gave me to practice.  I attended another organizations casting course last year.  I was very disappointed that it was mostly demonstrations and hardly any hands-on.  Thank you Charles for not letting me down.  You are right, your workshop is a lot of work!  I am sure my Doc will be happy with my improved skills.
Tony Janicik, CT   I wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the class you hosted in
Waterbury 9/27 and 28.  I felt it was professional & well presented, you
kept it moving and interesting.   I've already put the skills that you taught to use within 1 hour of
being back to work on Monday.  They worked great. The patient I applied
a short leg to commented that the cast I put on was more comfortable and
lighter than the one he had previous (which I put on also). The support
was right where it should be.  Patient & mom  (and the ortho-tech)
walked away happy.  Attached please find pictures of the casting stand
my Casting/DME room has. That is the one I used on the short leg cast
Monday.  Later that afternoon I had occasion to apply a short arm for a wrist
fracture that had similar results. 
You also mentioned how the resin in the casting tape can settle;  I've
already started "rotating" the boxes in an attempt to keep them

Over the years I've attended many classes for my different jobs (hockey
& baseball officiating, accounting, computer operation and programming,
EMS).  Your class had the most practical application of any classes I've
taken since I started working when I was 13.  I brought back skills I
can apply from day 1.  Good job!

Thanks again.

Dianne Joyner, R.T.(R)  Peace Health Orthopedic, Oregon I just wanted to send a quick note regarding the casting workshop I attended in Portland this past weekend.  I had a great time learning and Jack Hart was a fabulous instructor.  He created and maintained a fun, active and very educational atmosphere.  I actually was sad we didn't have more time to soak up more of his energy and knowledge.  Thank you and please let Jack know that his efforts were well received and appreciated.  I look forward to future classes that you may have in our area.
