Course dates are made available based on the availability of trainers but are “confirmed” only once the minimum number of participants is reached.

Course dates are usually listed Sunday to Sunday. The course usually takes place Monday to Friday and the full-day trip usually takes place on Saturday, so Sundays are arrival and departure days for those who book course, activities and accommodation.
