Interesting that you also use 'MAX 6 People per course', I have run many courses with 10-12 but its very hard to get the same content over and have found that 6-8 is ideal - what I dont get is how some people can run huge numbers of students that can never get the same invovlement as using 6-8.

You dont put a cost down?

All the best.
