HPT5 is unreal... it’s the hands on aspect that got me really interested to look at HPT5 and then I met Pete which only cemented my feeling that I wanted to get involved. It has been educational as well as a good old laugh. Pete is a great teacher. Explaining and breaking down key aspects of the course. You never go away confused or unsure of what you ve just been taught. Unfortunately it’s coming to an end but HPT5 and Pete are ready and wanting to stay in touch and offer any help needed. Massive 👍👍👍 up to the syllabus and teaching methods of HPT5 and Pete.
