Dates

In the past, we have offered set course dates but have generally found that clients prefer dates that suit their diary.
Responding to this, we now offer this course on any 2 consecutive days to suit both your and our availability.

If you have the choice weekdays are quieter in the hills but many clients have busy lives and weekends suit.

This is no problem, just get in touch and we will dovetail you into the programme.
