The outdoor safety section of your course will certainly get people thinking about safety
“What a great course! The outdoor safety section of your course will certainly get people thinking about safety and avoiding hazards when outside the house and in unfamiliar rural environments. I would recommend any person considering looking after other people’s children complete your course”
Outdoor Educator, Auscamp
