Owen was in the Army Cadet Force from the age of 12 and always knew that he wanted to join the forces, which he did straight after finishing school. In 2009 he was deployed to Afghanistan, serving for the 1st Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment, and just 3 months later was injured when he stepped on an explosive device.
Although Owen had a shattered heel and broken tibia and fibula they managed to save his leg and he spent 18 months in rehabilitation. However, Owen was still in a huge amount of pain and made the decision to have his leg amputated below the knee. “It was an easy decision for me as I just wanted to start doing things again and getting on with life, my family were really worried for me but they can see now that it was the right thing for me to do,” Owen told us.
Since losing his leg Owen has seen a new lease of life and is taking every experience and opportunity given to him. He has been climbing, bobsleighing, skiing, waterskiing, scuba diving and kayaking in countries such as Spain, Utah and Bavaria. All this has been funded by Battle Back, a new military initiative that provides adventurous training and sport rehabilitation to help wounded service personnel to gain confidence and return to an active life.
The Training Room personal training qualification will help him further with his rehabilitation especially as he is now training to go to the South Pole. Owen is still young and doesn’t have a definite plan for what his future may hold. That said, he plans to do a waterskiing instructors course and due to his sporty nature he will make sure he’s outdoors, staying active and isn’t going to let his disability stand in his way one little bit.

Was very prompt in getting me set up and everything sorted, made sure I was aware of everything, however i decided to cancel due to it being not the right time for me financially.
the customer service was great
I would recommend this course. They call you back or phone promptly if you have a problem. The course is full of information for the student to learn.
Online teaching courses initiated by this platform is remarkable. Anybody who has fewer resources can take a loan for completing this online course.
So far they have been brilliant supporters very efficient in answering the emails.
Holly was very helpful. She fully explained the course and all of the support that was provided during and after the course had finished. Very impressed with my experience, thank you.
Just started course but very helpful and always return calls emails
My experience so far with the cyber security Technologist e-learning is brilliant because I can do it when I'm free through the day (as I work nights) but also whenever I've got the time.
The course layout is simple and easy to follow, the information provided in your learning section is simple and easily broke down to be able to understand the information your taking in.
I've had emails from my tutor and careers support office explaining how their there to help me through every step of the way.
They also give you live prodiction on when you should finish your on course (depending on how long you put in daily) From my personal experience so far I haven't found any faults or wrongs with training platform or from the help of tutors/ career officers so.... This is why I have gave it a 5 start rating.
I am happy with the service provided thus far. All advisors have communicated well the course aims and I have a career support officer! I am looking forward to my course.
