Feedback from the previous course:

Leif's relaxed style of training, with constant recaps, was very good.

The location was fabulous, and the tutor was brilliant at making everything simple and easy to learn.

A lot of repetition which really helps!

It is good to have some time in the afternoon for the identification in little groups, as we can test our newly gained knowledge.

Great pace and clear teaching.
