Everyone at RESC goes about their tasks with enthusiasm and delight. We possess an innate curiosity and are always keen to continuously expand our knowledge. We are used to meeting and talking with many types of people, which enables us to rapidly identify the needs of the target group, the specific situation and where to start. Our instructors are almost immediately connected to the tasks, which means that there are not many steps to go through once you have made the initial telephone call until the first day of the course.
