I’m an instructor and would like to bring in my own group?Great! We need all external instructors to complete a registration, skills demo and provide copies of insurance and qualifications. After this external instructors may supervise on a 1:6 ratio, we recommend visiting the centre to complete these tasks beforehand and get a feel for the building so you can plan your session. We are happy to give tips and advice on making the most of your session.
