About us

Channel Training is a private training company based in arguably one of the finest outdoor destinations in the UK, Exmoor and the Bristol Channel.  Providing high quality professional and personal development courses as well as clear pathways into employment through apprenticeships and instructor training courses.

We really like people and seeing them achieve; in everything we do we work really hard to make ourselves as redundant as possible. Not great business you might think, but developing a person’s independence in the activity they enjoy is where genuine job satisfaction lies.  Whether it’s developing someone’s open water swimming confidence and awareness to someone taking their first paddle strokes on a SUP, we just love being part of that journey.
