I have created a help guide to your assignment to help with structure and what you should be doing.

This is not a complete plan, you will have to do a lot more than complete this booklet to gain a pass in RMPS. It can be used at National 5 or Higher Level.

If any other RMPS want to use it, feel free but please can you give me some feedback. So that we can make it even better, what else should I include etc.
