Customer Testimonials

I was very nervous about attending this course, but Paul made me feel much better and more confident. The content was very good and pitched at the right level for everyone. I would definitely recommend this to everyone to assist with completing lifts and the rationale around it.

Kerry - April 2019

Having more time to work through the practical elements and practice our coaching was really beneficial as we had completed the online learning prior to attending.
