    Multi-sport European Championships

    RRC tutor Carl Latimer will be representing Great Britain on 27th October at the Multi sport European Championships on the island of Ibiza.  Carl will be competing in the Age Group Middle Distance Triathlon, racing against competitors who have qualified from all over Europe. Middle distance triathlon (also known as “half iron man distance”) is a gruelling event by anyone’s standards – a 1900m open water swim, 56 mile bike and a half marathon, however at this level Carl will be up against the best in his age group so the pressure will be on.

    Hints and Tips – NEBOSH Environmental Diploma

    Practical Projects – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly I mark NEBOSH Environmental Diploma projects on a fairly regular basis, so I’d like to offer some hints and tips to help you achieve a good mark, based on my experiences of the sublime and the ridiculous!
