Hi James Just wanted to let you know that I completed the 2 day 4wd course with a bunch of people from the school this weekend and wanted to tell you what a great job Scott did in running the course. He left no stone unturned and showed great patience and professionalism throughout the 2 days. I will be recommending this course to anyone interested in 4wd courses. Was very impressed with Scott and thought I'd let you know. Cheers
