It's great working on these courses. Dan & Jen have taken the time to really think things through and make sure that all the resources are there. That means that as an instructor I can get on and do what I do best - make a relationship with the group and focus on giving them the right level of challenge.

Oh! - and there's always nice fresh coffee!...
