"I came into this training excited and anticipating that I would learn a lot. This training has far exceeded my expectations. I have worked with first responders in the past. I have family and friends who are first responders, and I still had a great deal to learn. This training does a fantastic job of explaining the first responder culture."
"The Certified First Responder Counselor (CFRC) Training program by Director, Amy Morgan with Academy Hour was informative, enlightening, and allowed me to hone my skills as a licensed therapist who works with first responders, victims, and their families who have experienced trauma. Amy is a knowledgeable and compassionate trainer who stays versed on all aspects of mental health and its role and connection with first responders. Amy articulates the importance of first responders' roles but also the emotional, physical, and mental distress they can experience. This is an excellent program and one I strongly endorse for any licensed counselor who works with our first responder population. I am truly humbled and blessed to have participated and completed this certification and training in working with first responders."
"This course is an absolute must for clinicians that have no, or very little experience working with these cultures who desire to work with First Responders."
