Hi Peter, The Boat Licence course I attended today was so well run and enjoyable, I was actually shocked. I didn’t expect to learn as much as I did and all the extra tips you gave and demonstrated, not for the exam, but for our boating enjoyment, made this course so valuable. I would highly recommend you to everyone, and now believe a refresher course should be compulsory as so many laws change over time. I thank you for your professionalism and pleasing delivery of all the info required to pass the test. Well done!

This is the most impressive experience I’ve had in training, development and leisure in the past 10 years as a professional.

Hi Peter and Derek, thank you for all your assistance with the NSW Maritime Boat Licence course. I would like to compliment you both on a professional well organized training course. Your attention to detail and forward planning made the day most enjoyable and allowed for a stress free exam. Rest assured I would not hesitate to recommend your services and certainly would look no further should I require any additional training.

The course was run very professionally with instructors willing to help and answer questions. Reference material was also very good.
