The APT Update course, taught by Alison Bonnyman, was a well organized and informative course. A large component of the course was practical, with much of the time spent in the water to improve handling skills and techniques as well as treatment planning. There was an opportunity to review clinical reasoning skills and exchange knowledge with fellow aquatic therapists which was very beneficial". T. Diamond, PT
