"Absolutely loved the course! Found it very beneficial and informative. Loved how it was very practical based, and didn’t involve sitting down for long periods. Really liked that all demonstrations you provided were really clear and easy to understand, & a good environment was created making it comfortable to ask questions etc. Particularly found it useful when being the instructor and controlling two ropes! Got a lot more from the course and learnt a lot more than I thought! Couldn’t fault the course in anyway! Would highly recommend you to others, and will sure be in contact in the future for an assessment."
