"I was very impressed with the whole process from applying for the course, the venue and our trainer. I am so happy I've done this course as it's a good idea to have this knowledge not just at work, but in everyday life. You never know when these skills are required."

Vivienne, Student.

"The instructor was absolutely fantastic. Entertaining, thorough and refreshingly real. No hold back on what we may encounter in reality. Made the coursework and practical enjoyable, rather than just another refresher course."
