What YOU have said...

"Thank you very much for the qualification. I truly think it’s a very good course. I have seen other institutions training programmes for guides and find your course to be very well designed and the content is a step higher than what I experienced before."
Maria
Guide
"It was straight forward and challenging at some stages well presented and enjoyable"
Howard
Guide
"It was nice to get a proper qualification for the job I do. To have the papers gives me a bit of additional confidence. Also nice to see the proper way of doing things as a tour guide in the field, gives a clearer standard to which I could measure my efforts."
Anel
Guide
"I realised soon enough that the course was going to be money well spent. There was so much information absorbed that it's difficult to put it all down in writing. The tasks/modules had an aim and that helped tremendously when wanting to set up a business as a Guide and the information I gathered along the way will also help for future planning on Guide trips. Emphasis was focused on safety and the needs of the paying customer. I can now see the value of having to do a course like this to prevent just anybody taking up the profession without proper training and qualifications."
Eric
Guide
"I am very happy that I enrolled in this course and delighted that I chose to do my practical course as well as my assessment with Rob Thomas. Not only did he teach me all techniques needed for the practical assessment, but also a lot of extra information that enriched my experience. I am definitly going to add more specialized fields to my GASG"
