Please note: It is advisable that students wear comfortable clothes, which are practical for various role-play situations (e.g. safety footwear, track-suits, jeans etc. – not skirts). Please do not wear lipstick as this marks the models when practicing. For those with long hair, a hair-band will help when practicing techniques. All students should be in full health on the days of the course as there may be some practical work involved. Students will be issued with a manual during the course, which has space for small amounts of note taking.
