What others have to say
Here's a few words from people who have completed our courses
Engaging with real-life experiences
" The College crew were fantastic. This was not your dry, run of the mill boat licence course, the trainer engaged us with real life examples making the lessons far easier to grasp. It was obvious the trainer was experienced and passionate about boating.
Informative hands-on practical
" The trainer perceived exactly my areas of concern, helped me to relax and really took the time and effort to ensure that I gained some skill as well as general boating knowledge. I began to gain a grasp the principles of boating, feeling the wind and current and gaining confidence while learning how to dock the training boat."
