    Paul Oxberry United Kingdom I am an experienced Outdoor Education Instructor and so I took this course to see if it could be something that I can offer apprentices or trainees, so that they get a good basic understanding. I thought the course offers a good understanding of various outdoor sports, why people take up sport, boundaries that exist and how the body works, It will be something that I offer trainees in the future 2015-01-07 13:01:19
