Dave has also been part of the item writing / exam validation committees for many years as well.

Dave knows the Biology diploma and often receives emails back from participants in his course to Thank him for their confidence going into the exam and how their marks increased – sometimes even by upwards of 30%. Dave’s course always fills – register early!

Dave has also recently been the head science consultant for his district, a testament to his skills in the classroom and diverse curriculum knowledge. Dave is one of the originals with RTD Learning and continues to bring his enthusiasm and knowledge to each class.
