    This Maritime School is a MUST.
    I have just completed my course to obtain my STCW & I'm pretty sad it's over.
    I'm convinced that all the instructors are part time comedians because there was great humour and laughs every day. Steven, Marthinus, Randall & John have great knowledge and life experience with all the topics that are taught. When you go there you are getting taught by people who know EXACTLY what they are talking about.
    All admin staff and those behind the scenes are efficient & helpful. Thank you for everything!
    My only "fault" (for lack of a better word) is that people should be aware that the PULSE Firefighter training does not take place on the property, therefore, there is an additional cost(R600) to your course should you use transport that Maritime put forward. Should you choose an alternative transport, such as Uber, your costs will be even higher.

    Either way, my partner and I had a fantastic time and I highly recommend them!

    I initially did my first course here and completed my refresher this year, and I can definitely say that the lecturers bring a wealth of knowledge, and are excellent in their respective field/subjects. There has definitely been an improvement on the content of both theory and practical. I'd like to thank all the fantastic lecturers, and amazing admin team who organised everything to a T.

    Dear Maritime Safety training Staff

    (Ernest, Bronwyn, Kacie, Nosie, John, Tolgha, RANDAL, DEBBIE and VAUGHN)

    Im am really pleased and more than the word happy itself to do my STCW full course training. For about 11 days on the facility i could feel that am at home. The kind of welcome from the staff was way above imagination.

    From day one when i started my training in Personal survival technics with Mr Randal eish i can't even explain the happiness in me. The staff members are so so knowledgeable and ever smiling and accommodating irregardless of other students who sometimes act childish or slow learning, Maritime staff not forgetting Debby an Ever smiling laddy who makes everything flow through her welcoming smile, I just want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU GUYS i really enjoyed the training from day 1 Upto day 11 doing PST, PSSR, EFA, CSA AND Marine Fire Fighting and Fire prevention.

    I don't have much to say but May the Good lord continue to Bless you in What you are doing.

    Literally 10 emails later, back amd forth along with phone calls hetting my certificate to me. Literally just a shrug of the shoulders. It's only my problem now.

    Replying to the reply:

    Why do you think I went elsewhere with my courses in the 1st place? Because of your attitude. But seeing the owner has an attitude of not caring. I see where the personnel gets it from. Secondly, I didn't demand my reissued certificate, it was mentioned in my 1st email in 2017. And no, your not sorry. I am sorry doing my certificate with you. Thirdly, as explained. There was no way I could have fetched my certificate. Why would I bother asking to help get it to me then? No, I am not the spiteful kind like you. You don't even know my whole story, so put your ego aside please and help me get my certificate, which I paid for!

    They issued me with a PSSR Certificate that has an expiry date after 5 years, where the STCW does not require a refresher in this course. The STCW only requires refreshers in Fire Fighting and Survival at Sea. Trust me looking for time, later in your yachting career, to redo a course unnecessarily is not fun, do your PSSR elsewhere.

    When I tried to contact them, they just ignored me. Just another South African company that exploits people who are eager to get into yachting.

    Addded: Spoke to SAMSA and it seems the legislation in SA requires the 5 year expiry. They are in the process to amend it.

    Absolutely awesome! STCW courses are completed in a world class facility by experienced, professional and inspiring teachers! From my experience, T. Watson , who was a facilitator during some of my courses , goes over and above what is expected, each and every student in my class can agree that his training was thorough and well presented! Safety first can now be practiced with confidence! Thank you!
