This is some of the feedback attendees have said about our courses:

‘Adam and his team are brilliant at delivering complex information at a level everyone of my team can understand. I don't think anyone of guys will look at a pringles tube, mush-peas and tic-tacs in the same way again’

‘I was really impressed with the amount I learnt today. The visual demonstrations really gave substance to the facts and figures of the environmental impacts and the significance.’

‘Very knowledgeable tutor, with a friendly atmosphere to discuss and ask questions.’



Our staff maintain and enhance their knowledge of ecology and the environment through research, specialist training and by maintaining membership of several professional and specialist bodies including:

Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management
Royal Entomological Society
British Ecological Society

"Nothing is too much trouble and the two way communication is second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend HalpinRobbins to anyone and we wouldn’t even contemplate going anywhere else."
