Course Dates

We don't book specific days of the month for courses. The first person to call with a requirement sets the date and the rest join in as they book. We have no minimum numbers so, unlike many other schools, we never cancel a course if there aren't enough delegates to make it pay.

Classroom based courses such as Diesel Engine Maintenance, First Aid, VHF Radio and Boatmaster ancillary training run throughout the year and the training centre is fully heated, air conditioned, draft proof and very comfortable.

Simple Booking Process. Call us or email and we do everything over the phone. No forms, no postage, no hassle. Confirmations sent out by email or post to suit you.

Boat Handling

Please note, we are fully booked up to the end of November. We will then be closed for Boat Handling until the 1st March 2022. We normally run the two-day courses on Tuesday and Wednesday then Thursday and Friday and fit in one-day courses where we can. Bookings already taken for March and April 2022.
