What our students say about this course:

"Jade was fantastic on day one. Very friendly and easy going but knows her stuff and very informative.

It was great to finally meet you on day two.  Dave has spoken highly of you for sometime now hence me having no hesitation to pay for a course with you and my expectations were met, thank you." - Dawn B

"I found the strapping and taping course a thoroughly interesting and informative experience. It has certainly developed my knowledge and understanding of the necessity for strapping and taping coupled with enhanced knowledge of sports injuries and the link to massage/therapy. I would recommend this course to anyone who works alongside teams/sports individuals and who has an aspiration to work in the practical sports industry." - Deborah S
