"'On Monday 5th October I attended my FOET Course. I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to HOTA for the whole days experience which I received during Covid19. The due care and attention given to me from the minute I walked through the door, to end of play was exceptional. This was from the door monitor, the reception administrator and more importantly the instructors. In particular Carl M and Phil D. Once I raised a concern to Carl, I felt his personal attention to me was second to none. In fact, being an ex service RAF man of 36 years I appreciated the training in the pool, more particularly as I embraced and respected the ex military personnel instructors, even though a lot them were from the Navy. With respect to Phil Drew, he also displayed a caring and understanding of my personal anxiety to the wearing of the smoke hood. However with his professional guidance and encouragement, I found the three exercises to be fully achievable and less stressful. Lastly my whole day experience was very rewarding and I feel that the services even in COVID19 have improved since 4 years ago. Thank you very much."
