"I've waited a long time for an ALTIS HJ course and purchased it as soon as I picked up the email. I've gone through the modules over the weekend and the content has confirmed much of my existing coaching philosophy and methodology. The bonus is the additional content and links that is accessible. I will be going over this again and again!!"

"I just wanted to say I’m blown away by the course (and I’ve done every qualification in the UK!) ... It’s designed and presented in such a logical way, with written and visual reinforcements that I found retention of the information so easy."
University of Bath CE Coach
"I would consider myself an experienced coach with a clear view on how I want to develop the senior athletes as well as preparing my juniors for the journey ahead. This online course gave me confidence in my work because of the common themes, but it also provided some new theoretical aspects when it comes to communicating with my athletes and also gave me new ideas on technical details where I felt I got a bit stuck."
