Just wanted to say thank you for the BCU 5 Star Leader training.  It was brilliant; I personally learnt loads and was really impressed. 

Gary Bullen, Arvor Sea Kayaking

J-P’s wealth of experience in the coasteering field made us all feel very confident that we had chosen the right person to provide the best coasteering and rescue knowledge for our guides. The training was thorough and guidance ongoing. He clearly cares about customers and provided a great framework for best practice.
