Course guidance and quality teaching

We believe in offering more than the syllabus and exam passes; we aim to ensure that you achieve your personal best, putting you in the best position possible at the end of your training to be successful in your chosen career.

We don’t close our doors when classes end for the day. You’ll have access to study rooms and facilities after teaching hours if you need, to help you get the most out of your course, and your instructors can often be found around site when they’re not teaching.

The wealth of industry experience from our teaching staff is second to none; we have some of the most highly regarded people in the industry teaching our students.

We have an impressive fleet, dedicated marine engineering workshops, lecture rooms, resource areas and the best professional training locations on our doorstep in Cowes, Isle of Wight – the home of yachting.

Come and visit us?

Come to one of our regular open days to see the facilities and site and to meet the team.
