The Train the Trainer on Escape From Height (Abseiling) 2 day course provided by MCL and delivered by Jesper Eriksen was clearly structured and and very engaging, Lots and lots of reinforcement cleverly integrated into learning activities and delivered by a excellent instructor. Very interesting, a  fantastic trainer in Jesper  who showed he is a consummate professional who knows the topic inside out.
Made us all feel confident in the ability to deliver effective and safe training courses from now on, and would recommend MCL at the highest level, Thank you again.
