“I attended an invaluable, well-structured, comprehensive, supportive and enjoyable Advanced Hill Skills course. This small-group course was tailored to meet my individual needs, namely to improve specific Mountain Leader skills prior to putting myself forward for assessment. After the course I was then able to pass my Mountain Leader Assessment with confidence.”

"The course was extremely well set up with lots of helpful learning activities."

“This is the best first aid course I have been on.  The teaching methods in combination with a comprehensive syllabus helped to achieve this.  Robin is a highly skilled trainer.  Thanks!”
