  1. Andy Hosking


    Great updater on the latest techniques for firefighting and sea survival.

  2. Stefan Smart


    A very good course. Good questioning during the course to test understanding and knowledge. A relaxed but thorough delivery provided a good mix of personnel/teachers.
    Would recommend to my company without hesitation.

  3. Michael John Voisey


    Certain techniques (Life raft righting/short pulse/long pulse fire fighting) were new to me. Both excellent.

  4. Sterling Mason


    All instructors knew their subjects any questions were answered and if answers not known, instructors found out.
    Friendly and relaxed atmosphere a perfect blend of professionalism.
    Very happy with the course. I learned new techniques for fire fighting, which I can take back to our vessel for drills.
    Good to get into an immersion suit and practise in cold water rather than a swimming pool.
