The QAA would like to thank the Training Provider for the warm welcome received and the excellent organisation observed.

Throughout the delivery of the course, the excellent knowledge and experience of tutor shone through. Theory was enhanced by the use of many and varied examples from the pool environments. Learners rated their ability to apply learning as outstanding. They spoke very highly of the tutor – all rating him as outstanding. The course manual contains useful and relevant theory and serves as a reference tool post-course. Health and safety was referred to regularly. The class size was small and the tutor had a very good rapport with all learners.
