“Having previously been in one or two hostile environments, I found the HASP course to be very comforting. Not only did I realise how little I knew but also just how much I could have got it wrong. Just the right length and pitched at the right level, the messages went in loud and clear. I thoroughly enjoyed it too, which was a bonus.”
— Steve McDowell, Editor Investazine

He firmly believes that clients get the most out of the training by learning and then practising.  PowerPoint and note taking are followed by lots and lots of practical. 

At the end of each course delegates get the opportunity to take home the Medical Packs they trained on and everyone who completes the day and can demonstrate that they can perform Basic Life Support gets an Emergency First Certificate as standard.

Steve and Rupert became friends while working together training the BBC.  HASP’s courses are normally concluded with a demanding practical scenario, where delegates get to put their new skills to use in a controlled environment.

Steve choreographs and conducts these for HASP, he goes to great lengths to make them challenging, different and relevant.  Sometimes they're such a guarded secret that even his fellow instructors don’t know what he has in store.
