TRAINING COURSE EXAMPLES
It is impractical to list each and every course, heading or topic I cover in my training courses. However, I thought it would be helpful to set out a list of the types of courses I run at different levels of qualification and experience.
This isn't intended to be an exhaustive list - more to give a flavour for some of the areas I cover, and how I approach them.
The topics and areas are also fairly interchangeable between the various groups, and I will always adapt content and delivery accordingly.
