Learner feedback

"Great course - I haven't had any experience of a wildfire, so in some cases I have weak knowledge of a typical incident. No that I've done this course, I'm sure I will have a much better awareness of what to do."

Learner feedback

"Enjoyed the opportunity to discuss matters and confirm learning, the tutor was clearly knowledgeable and passionate."
