After completing my L3 Coach (Sea) assessment with Mark Tozer (& Pete Jones) naturally I was extremely happy at having passed it but even happier about how much I had also learnt through the process.
Everything about Mark's courses and assessments are geared towards learning even though at the time, it was occuring at a subconscious level. At a first glance the paperwork surrounding the delivery of Mark’s session may seam excessive, but in the grand scheme of things its still a very small percentage!
At the end of the day, the written word allows us to organize our thoughts and understand complex processes that cannot be described practically. Mark does this very well and dispels the myth that paper work has no place in the outdoor world! And from my experience is one of the few coaches in North Wales that successfully bridges the gap between sound theory and good practice.
Doing a great job as RCO and North Wales is much better of because of it!
