Day 1 Essentials training course

This training provides all Tacpackers with the fundamental understanding and skills necessary for the effective delivery of Tacpac.

It is essential training both for experienced practitioners and also those who are starting out from scratch. We look at both the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of Tacpac; combining theory and practice into a fun, interactive and stimulating day of training.

I have a greater understanding of how the brain works with the senses, and I believe I could put this into practice.
