Some comments from our previous courses:

"Brilliant Week!!!! Thanks Chris & Chris, I got a lot out of the training and had a great time. Stunning location, lovely people and an action packed week. Awesome." Sobia Mirza - MLT

"Attention to detail is everything and this course met that criteria in every way" Dr T Stenhouse  MLT

"I am just back from passing my ML Assessment! Without your course there would have been no way I would have had the skills, attitude or personal presentation to pass. Particularly important was being able to walk away with ropework skills and a foolproof approach to navigation imprinted in my mind" E. Simms, July ML Training.

"It has been an amazing experience! The course exceeded my expectations in terms of the amount and quality of my learning. I also felt valued and have been given the confidence to consider the assessment now!"

"Just a quick note to say a massive thank you to you both for providing such an excellent course. I know you must have worked exceptionally 
hard to make everything work so smoothly and professionally."

"Excellent course - really really fun and enjoyable. Tuition was top rate and very positive and confidence boosting - will recommend to all."

"May I just say thank you both for an excellent course, which mixed practical, theory and humor in a perfect balance." R. Bowyer May MLT
