How could this course be improved?

February 5 and 6, 2022

  • The material was organized but there was a lot. I could tell you took tons of time to make it not overwhelming, but having a printed course manual may help some to organize parts, with the electronic materials as extra to have.

  • Keep on truckin!

  • Teach other people to give courses this effective.

  • More treatment techniques demonstrated, but it was offered and the class chose something else which was also just as helpful for examination process.

  • Good course. I took it a few years ago and I can see the helpful changes and I am glad I took it again.

  • More case studies

  • More examples of full cases to bring it all together.





March 2 and 3, 2019 Course Evaluation

  1. More concussion!

  2. Have Team print out the handouts or get it to us earlier so that we can order prints.  Too much to print in clinic or at home.

  3. Not jumping around from page to page. If we have to, at least knowing which pages so we are not struggling flipping between pages. 

  4. More time to practice maneuvers vs. oculomotor.

  5. Maybe a third course.

  6. I really enjoyed this course!

  7. Printed material

  8. The presentation at times was a little jumpy and challenging to follow.

  9. With the amount of material given, I feel that this course should be taught over three days. It would have just given more time to reinforce the material.

  10. Nothing. It was great.

  11. Have training manual printed and provided at course or telling us to print it at home.

  12. A little longer. There always seems to be so much information and so little time. More info on cupulo and canalo diagnosis and treatment.

  13. A little greater detail regarding basic physiology and pathophysiology surrounding conditions.

  14. (Most) sometimes when Andy asks a question the answer is crickets because the question is very vague and non-specific therefore hard to answer. Just some suggestions to get better participation.

  15. Not sure.

  16. Less sheets and slides. Slides better organized.


Nov 23 and 24, 2019 Course Evaluation

  • Pull everything together more often with treatment, eval, etc

  • Slightly disjointed at times, but overall great.

  • A little more organization

  • I feel the handout was very overwhelming and hard to follow.  At times I felt we were jumping all over.  I thought it was a very helpful course, but wish the course was more organized in how we progressed through the weekend.

  • Would have been nice to have slides printed. Unable for some of us to print in clinic.

  • No recommendations.

  • Organization- Anatomy/types prior to evaluating

  • Ideas and material presented quickly and easily off tangents.  Very difficult for beginners in the realm to follow. Felt like this was not a beginner class.

  • A lot of info, but presented in a good way.


Nov 17 and 18, 2018 Course Evaluation

  • Include anatomy/basic definitions in the handout

  • Putting info together in real-world situations.

  • Organize the manual a little better.  Sometimes seem to jump around/back and forth.

  • Turn heat on, luckily manuals were not needed for this course. If my fingers are numb I find it difficult.

  • Increase practice time/lab

  • N/A

  • I think it would be helpful to have a more in-depth review of the anatomy during some of the objective tests and measures.

  • It was an outstanding course!

  • More blank pages in the course manual to write own notes.

  • N/A

  • Potentially organizing the BPPV test/treatment section into two parts (ant/post) and (horiz). I feel this was a source of confusion.

  • Organize course material.

  • It was great!


November 4 and 5 2017 Course Evaluation

  • It was hard to follow the handouts with your lecture. If it was explained at the beginning you’d jump around it would have helped. All great info though!

  • I would like to better understand how to communicate this information to patients.

  • As presenting, note where in the handouts info is located. It was not done often enough.

  • Nothing I can think of.

  • Hard to follow on laptop.

  • Should have printed course material.

  • I would have liked a clearer link between exam findings- specifically non-red flag central findings and treatments.

  • Some better aligning between powerpoint/handout and lecture.

  • N/A

  • Presentation of info felt scattered/jumped around. Hard to make notes when couldn’t follow where were in handouts.

  • I felt like we jumped around a lot and so it was difficult at times to keep up with the actual course content.

  • A short PowerPoint we can print out to follow along with the lecture.

  • It was a little too much jumping around for me who knew nothing coming in.

  • Framework/organization with exercises. Dosing of ex more explained.

  • Sometimes I felt a bit lost, but I know I have the handouts to review.

  • Flow and presentation of material.

  • Better handouts on day one.

  • Have handouts correlate directly to lecture. Was difficult to follow slides as lecture was being given.

  • Nothing

  • Nothing!


May 13, 2017 Course Evaluation

  • Very good course

  • It was perfect

  • Issue course handouts at seminar. I was unable to download/print copies.

  • Nothing in my opinion. I learned a lot

  • Condense the powerpoint that came with the manual

  • Too much was “touched on” with direction to websites. I would have preferred less information given much more thoroughly to be able to feel confident addressing one or two issues instead of touching a little on a bunch of potential issues and not feeling confident to do much on “Monday.”

  • Surfaces to practice on.

  • Nothing

  • Just keep on learning!


March 2 and 3, 2019 Course Evaluation

  • No suggestions

  • None

  • No

  • None

  • I would be interested in a more comprehensive two-day course for more complete course.

  • Having the slides to print off in white background, but can still have the course slideshow in color.


April 29, 2017 Course Evaluation

  • A tool “kit” to put together package of tests and procedures.

  • More plinths

  • More clinical setting

  • General explanations of anatomic structures of inner ear.

  • See use of goggles

  • Be in a room that was cooler.

  • Nothing. Everything was great.

  • NA

  • No complaints


Any other comments?

February 5 and 6, 2022

  • Will be coming to the second course if I can!

  • Already looking forward to your November course!

  • Thank you!

  • Good course. I took it a few years ago and I can see the helpful changes and I’m glad I took it again!

  • Well organized and extremely helpful course!

  • Thank you!

  • Thank you!


Nov 23 and 24, 2019 Course Evaluation

  • Thank you!

  • Nope, great course and instructor!

  • I think our special guests often got on to tangents and would be better suited to have their own one day or ½ day course- great info, just got a little jumbled.  (Andy’s remarks on this comment: Special guests were Neurologic Optometrist and Emergency Department Physicians I invited to join our class)

  • **Andy was very enthusiastic and helpful.  If the handout/powerpoint was a bit more organized I feel it would be a lot easier for those of us who are new to vestibular.

  • Great course. Please do another level II course!

  • Great course! Looking forward to the future of this type of therapy.

  • Not enough time to practice

  • Not enough time for treatment flow, do what, when, and why.

  • Continue to have this course! It’s a really good tool for therapists!


November 4 and 5 2017 Course Evaluation

  • Thank you for all the handouts and informational resources.

  • Thanks!

  • Thank you!

May 13, 2017 Course Evaluation

  • Thank you!

  • Big thanks to Andy and Casey for putting this on. I learned a lot!

  • When is another course?

  • Great job Andy! I love your passion for BPPV Dx and Tx.

  • Great course. I would highly recommend it!

  • Great job!

  • Thank you!

  • Thanks Andy for sharing your wealth of knowledge and experience with us in an effort to improve the quality of lives of thse in our care day to day!

  • Thank you for this course!


March 2 and 3, 2019 Course Evaluation

  • Maybe come back and do a whole concussion course??

  • Great job!!

  • 22 key elements are good, but a little confusing- almost too much- maybe break them up first into the SOAP prior to going over them vs. after.

  • A more advanced, review course could be interesting

  • When first introducing “elements,” etc actually call them that right away. I didn’t realize that is what Andy was referring to when we first started case studies.

  • I really enjoy Andy’s approach. I enjoy that he is so motivated to learn and so knowledgeable. I feel inspired and empowered to explore vestibular as well as other treatments to optimize my patient’s wellness. I like having vestibular tools. I typically like treating chronic pain most and I have used so much of his material to help them live better lives.

  • Great course!

  • So so good! Really inspired me to keep trying to be better and better! Thank you!

  • Absolutely love course! Great info!

  • Provide instructions of course materials, ie what we need, updates.


February 2, 2017

  • Great course!

  • Thank you!

  • Thank you for your knowledge!


April 29, 2017
