What I would highlight: I thoroughly enjoyed this course it was informative and surprisingly fun! I have come away with the knowledge of being able to use my radio equipment confidently and also able to pass on to my crew what I have learned. I am so glad that I went on this course it is great value for money and I have already recommended it to several people who intend taking a radio course.

What I would highlight: Really useful and informative course, with lots of interesting additional material from Paul's own experiences, The style of presentation, the interaction with other attendees and the hands on practice made the time pass so quickly it was late afternoon before I realised. I have already recommended the course to other seafarers.
