I can not recommend enough. Very impressive set up and highly experienced tutor's makes The seamanship centre the best around. I attended the STCW week and although there is a lot to learn in just a few days I assure you that the tutors are outstanding and come the end of the course you'll feel confident that you have acquired all the relevant knowledge that you need.
5 stars all the way.. can't wait to return to do my OOW.
