Student comments on their Splash Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster® Offshore Shorebased 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:

I liked very much to learn the different modules in an individual way. I logged in and out - sometimes very often in a single day - and I was always able to continue with my program.

Also I found it astonishing which kind of excellent material was included in the basic course fee. Really an unforgettable experience.

But the most impressive thing - really outstanding - was the response of John if I had some stupid questions. He never lost his temper and responded immediately.

This is a superb course that has clearly been well thought out to deliver good quality training, using multimedia and teaching aids such as charts and plotters to their best with prompt and knowledgeable support and for distance learning it could not be better.

As soon as enrolled able to access materials especially as some as the course does not require materials such as dividers or charts so you get the good feeling that you have paid and you are getting something back and could start straight away and there was no peer pressure and can be done at own pace to suit personal situation.

The personalized help was greatly appreciated and any further information needed was always promptly given in a very friendly manner.

Never felt silly for asking or like I was being too bothersome.
