"Future fit training programme was very…"

Future Fit training programme was very straight forward, but I felt I was missing out by not having any hands-on experience with an actual coach/tutor. A lot of my marks were lower than they could have been due to not fully understanding the subject or item as well as I should, but not having a quick reference point available to verify anything was a drawback.

"An incredibly professional organisation…"

An incredibly professional organisation that deserves recognition for the quality of the training. It was made easy for me to qualify to Level 4 PT by use on online training to provide a foundation of knowledge, then supplemented by simply superb weekend workshops on various specific aspects - these workshops under promised and over delivered every single time through instructors that had a wealth of knowledge and experience and clearly demonstrated this in a professional manner.
