Please watch the video below to see what Jenny, a highly qualified & experienced outdoor instructor herself, thought of the quality of WILDWOOD TRAININGS Bushcraft Competency Certificate training course...
"I have attended several Bushcraft & Survival courses with Andy, which were hugely enjoyable, and I learned a lot! His teaching method was really relaxed but I learned something new almost every time he spoke to the group. I can’t recommend his courses enough and I’ll train with him whenever I get the opportunity."
