"Awesome course all round, thank you to all instructors and Prometheus!!"

"A really good course which is good value for money. I enjoyed every aspect and this course has really inspired me for my future career!"

"It was amazing to have guest lecturers from North America!"

"Very high quality of intructors and effort put into each session."

"Excellent quality and range of teaching equipment and materials."

"Thank you for your running of the ExpeMed course last weekend. You catered for all experience and skill levels, you managed all the personalities, you took us through an immense amount of material, you kept the course interesting (I was gripped throughout and normally get fidgety very quickly), the variety of media you utilised and the range of experts kept it action packed and relevant.  I particularly appreciated the skill and sensitivity in which you handled those areas that can get tricky eg re gender, strength, size, race etc. I enjoyed the course immensely and learned so much.  I have been reading and writing my notes up and reading the course book, there is a massive amount more to learn and practice to get, but I do feel I have gained a lot of confidence to be useful on expeditions big and small. Thank you again for a fantastic delivery of an amazing course, I feel thanks to your skill in teaching I have learned a major amount."
