What will I get?

You receive a comprehensive manual for each part of the course. Additionally, you will receive lesson plans to help you formulate your own class, along with a risk assessment table to make your class safe.

I already run my own bootcamps, what will the Bootcamp Alliance course give me?

We have had many existing Bootcamp Instructors come along and learn new aspects for their own courses. If you wish to speak to them for an independent appraisal of our courses, then let us know and we'll put you in touch with them.
