We have an enthusiastic and dedicated team of lecturers consisting of Master Mariners, Chief Engineers, naval architects and maritime lawyers, including an ex-DNV surveyor and an ex-MCA senior examiner. In addition to their expertise they have all achieved a higher qualification in how to teach. Each separate topic in a yacht deck module will be delivered by a subject specialist, which means we are able to deliver you the best teaching currently available anywhere in the world. All of these lecturers are conversant with more than one subject, so sudden illness and other unforeseen circumstances will not impact upon your course delivery.
We operate in a relaxed manner which allows students access to lecturers outside of timetabled sessions to discuss engineering issues relating to their own personal experiences.
Our comprehensive study guides undergo regular updates to cater for changes in legislation and improvements in technology. They are now available as an app for iPads or Android and will automatically be refreshed when notes are updated.
In addition we have an extensive maritime library, with full IT facilities, open until 2100 hrs for students to complete their examination preparation.
Our students enjoy well above industry standard exam pass rates; our aim is to maintain and improve upon this level of achievement.
