    Love how much of a practical element is involved in this course! Being in a lake rather than a pool makes it so much more of a realistic situation. Felt very safe at all times, so pleased I came back for my refresher.

    Very often during these courses you come across very tired, old kit. Not here. All relatively new + top of the range kit.
    Very impressed.

    At first thought the location was a bit weird (due to being far from the sea) but in the end the location and the courses exceeded my expectation.

    Brilliant course which was well run by professional instructors. The update courses were pitched at the right level and I felt I learnt a lot and refreshed my skills.

    i) Very realistic & therefore valuable training.
