Continuous support is provided to all our training students from the moment they qualify and unlike other courses, we offer a legal refresher course every 3 years. Industries today recognise the need to continue training beyond initial qualifications, to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout staffs work time. We can provide this professional development for each and every person who is trained by our company, please ask for a quotation.

The private courses take place in a fully equipped classroom which has the advantage of allowing people to get away from work and concentrate more thoroughly on the training itself. All students will be using the actual tools, equipment, documents and materials that they will be expected to as a qualified professional. Our training has the specific goals of improving one’s capability, capacity and performance. Each student who has come through our training is graded so a prospective employer knows exactly how dedicated each trainee is.

The practical unit of “on-the-job training” has a general reputation as being the most effective for vocational work, so this is exactly what we do. Students are in a simulated work environment and will have to respond to each and every situation we put their way; this is completed in the classroom and at sea, every student is carefully monitored throughout this training process and assess accordingly.

We provide on request from your HR department, a training report for each individual student to ensure they have thorough knowledge and understanding of the work situation they will be placed in.
