If you are an athletic trainer, do not bother with this course. It is designed for healthcare providers in the hospital setting. This is how they describe cold water immersion - "The most rapid method for cooling a patient with heat stroke is immersion in an ice water bath, and it is recommended in wilderness settings. Although this method can be considered in the healthcare setting, it is often difficult if not impossible."
