Testimonials from recent participants

  • ‘The course was well designed with enough hands on outdoor practice to make it feel realistic and useful.  We covered a wide range of problems and worked on solutions for treating people in potentially inhospitable environments.’
  • ‘The trainer was wonderful: made it fun, engaging and in-depth.  Very relevant to me.  Would definitely recommend.  And what a lovely site!’ (Porthpean)
  • ‘Great two days.  A big positive aspect for me was that the theory was regularly backed up with practical/practise sessions, that makes it all more memorable.  I hope never to have to use most of this knowledge, however if I do, I am better prepared than before.’
