Student comments on their Splash Day Skipper Theory Course experience

We ask all of our Splash students to tell us what they think of their course, so that we can make improvements. Here are a few comments:

One of the best things about this course was the flexibility to complete it when and where I could. It fitted in well with a busy work and home life! The level of support I received from John was excellent; always quick to reply with really clear advice and instruction, together with great encouragement!

I didn't think that distance learning would be easy, but Splash really did help make my Day Skipper Theory a success.

I like the way that the course is split into easy to manage modules and that the 'My Course' page lets you see how much you have completed.  The flexibility to dip in and out of modules is excellent.

The easy access when you can manage it 24/7 is what i like most about the course . Homework been my least thing i liked ,not been a homework lover i quickly got thru it all with the support of john (thanks again)10 out of 10 for your support. I found out about this course on the internet i was over the moon no classroom no traffic to and from always there to assist all your study material everything a bargain and a delight of which i would recommend to anyone, superb!

The Splash course suited my requirements of an on-line provider that I could access 24/7 at times that suited me. It’s an easy site to navigate and is very intuitive. It’s simple and fun and there are some great reference sites that allow you to “deep dive” into a topic well beyond the needs of the course.You can do it at your own pace which was really important to me.

The homework element was really strong and the feedback from Splash was encouraging, responsive and first rate. A reply back on a Sunday afternoon after having just clicked “send” with some answers, is great customer service in my book!

The actual course content is great, everything needed was included. Plenty of information and links to other useful websites too.

Knowing that help and support from the tutor was only an email away was great, and that the response usually arrived within minutes was even better!
