Some kind words from our clients...

“Nick has a fantastic way of teaching that makes the course content easy to understand and memorable, even many months later! The course is run in a friendly way and the outdoor elements are not only a good change from the classroom but is very useful to see the principals in practice on slopes and on hills and the difference this makes. Great course and I will be back every 3 years!”
From Jon Tate

“I have found the mountain trauma course to be relevant and practical. It has given me fresh confidence to deal with emergency situations and the teaching and evaluation process were top quality. The course met my training needs and I'd recommend it to others.”
From Nicky Jones

“I highly recommend this course. It is very useful to have a first aid course that is so relevant to our needs. The scenarios used were very realistic and matched those we may encounter when out with our Duke of Edinburgh groups. The best in-service training I have had in 14 years of teaching.”
From Chris Lawrence – Secondary school teacher and DofE leader
