Course Feedback Form

What our clients say...

"Good structure, fun safe, learning. Learnt loads on top of what I already knew and got individual coaching even with a large group. Pre-course information given meant I was fully aware of the structure and what was going to happen, simple, good communication through emails and phone calls. Kit was in excellent condition, ready to be used, so I could have the opportunity to try everything. I learnt new ways to coach and rescue as well as refining techniques I already knew. Any questions were answered and more advice given, praise where needed. Got my Level 1 and FSRT, got great advice and lots of things to take away with me."
