How much experience do the RYA PWC trainers have running 'onboard' Superyacht specific training?

Our management staff have been involved with onboard RYA training since it's inception in 2007. All our other staff have a minimum of 2 years experience of running onboard training. We will NEVER send an unaccompanied 'yacht newbie' onboard. 

Do the staff have an understanding of Yacht etiquette?

We all had to start somewhere; but after 8 years of running onboard training courses; we are confident that our staff will always be polite and appropriate. We know that each Yacht operates slightly differently and therefore our staff will always take the lead from the Crew onboard. 

Why are the course prices set as they are?

Unlike many other businesses within the Superyacht Industry; we do not perceive you as a 'cash cow'; instead we simply see you as another way to educate new crew and guests in water safety and enjoyment. Our course prices for training are 'fixed' so there are no hidden extras; dependant on where your training takes place will dictate additional costs for travel/accomdoation; we will always be absolutely transparent when making these arrangements and will ALWAYS find the most reasonable and cost effect travel/accomodation options.
