Modern Conference Room

BOOK YOUR OWN COURSE & DATE

I want to contribute to my community!
Let me train your friends, colleagues or your crew at your place of business!

If you are supplying the venue, it must be an appropriate clean space for the number of candidates with sufficient floor space, ventilation and facilities. I am doing my best to help out other small businesses. I prefer a minimum of 8 to a max of 18 candidates. Please message to inquire :)


My home base is in Nelson, however, I do travel to train within the West Kootenay area including Trail, Rossland, Fruitvale, Castlegar, Salmo, Kaslo and the Slocan Valley. I also potentially train in Kelowna and Kamloops with appropriate venue and accommodations' provided.
