Activities training assessment certificate 

“I have just completed a course which has been based in Gibraltar. I am so impressed with the standard and of the content of the work books which are informative, helpful to say the least.
It must be said that the skilled delivery and competency of the trainer was outstanding.
His knowledge was obviously experienced based which came through on every aspect of the syllabus. He successfully delivered a large amount of data in a manner that was understood to a good sized group of people who’s first language is not necessarily English.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course, I have learnt new skills and taken on board new and exciting ideas.
I sincerely hope we can take advantage of more of your training in the not too distant future.
I can’t say anything other a huge thank you and that I would not have any reservation in highly recommending you and deservedly so.”
