    Liverpool was not convenient for me to get to, but this company had last-minute availability and the best price of anything I found. And I'm glad I chose them!
    Seascope did a fabulous job - very friendly and knowledgeable staff, excellent facilities, easy to get to (once you're in Liverpool).

    I was doing my STCW refresher for the first time and was very nervous. I'm not on the fire team on my ship so the last time I even touched a BA set was 5 years ago when I did the original course. I was afraid that we would be expected to know everything already but that wasn't the case; everything was reviewed or, when necessary, patiently taught over again. We had a small class size, only three of us, which was nice. The pool facility was excellent, and the abandon ship simulation was as realistic as it could be in an indoor pool.

    Thumbs up all around, excellent job! Highly recommend Seascope.

    Had to travel down from Newcastle as AIS don't do the STCW anymore. Can't fault this place at all, easy process to book, excellent communication and information sent to me about the course, also maps, directions, hotels, everything.

    On the 2 days I was there the entire staff were amazing, from the guys doing the actual course, to the office staff and the canteen , absolutely lovely, friendly, helpful and very experienced team.

    I would highly recommend using Seascope

    Fantastic week with Seascope - the instructors were so knowledgeable and yet kept a lighthearted atmosphere throughout each session, which really put me at ease and allowed me to proactively get involved. The practical elements were great fun as well, especially the fire safety training, and I now feel like I have all the skills I need during my cruise! I even made some new friends as well which is always a bonus. Thank you to all the Seascope team!

    Seascope Liverpool - What an AMAZING place, can’t say thank you enough to the staff and the course trainers, the loveliest people ever. From day one everyone was so welcoming and friendly. The course modules are delivered in a fun and informative way and constant help and support throughout was given. Honestly can’t recommend this place enough, if you are looking at booking an STCW course make sure you choose this place, don’t be nervous as it’ll be the best week ever.

    Thanks to everyone at Seascope for such a great week. Had an absolute blast and learnt some very valuable skills.

    Superb experience. Great place, and great course. You learn and gain the qualifications needed to go and work at sea but also important and essential life skills like first aid. The course is split into theory and practical sessions. You get all the information and knowledge required to understand a role at sea. Then you have practical sessions where the theory is put into practice. The staff there are very patient with you regardless of your past experience and can't do enough for you. I'd like to give a special mention to Frank and Alfie who where my tutors who where very knowledgeable and passed on their experience and made the course enjoyable and easy to understand. Also to Phil and all the other firefighters, who made the fire fighting practical a safe and amazing experience. Also a thank you to Alex and all the other office staff, who couldn't do enough for you, and the Kitchen Ladies who keep you fed, with lovely food, and hydrated and the lads who make sure you have the correct PPE for the firefighting course to keep you safe. In all I can genuinely say it's the best course I've ever done. Great place with really nice, genuine People. Just wish I'd done it sooner. Would highly recommend.

    I've just done the PST course.
    The folks were sound, the info was to the point but not rushed and and its clear they take care of their facilities. This is my 3rd time doing the PST course after using other providers on the south and east coast, they dont come close to Seascope's cleanliness and approachability. I'll be back again when its time to renew! Cheers guys!

    Kids have been doing swimming lessons for about 2 years and they both love it. The pool is as basic as they come but this is just what the kids need to keep focused. The staff are amazing with the kids and the pool is normally filled with laughter.

    Fully recommend the place to any parent wanting to get their kids swimming lessons with people who actually care about what they do.

    I attended the STCW course on Monday 15th February 2012.
    From arriving on the Sunday the level of service was second to none. The hospitality and care they provided was amazing from the moment I arrived at the accommodation.
    The course itself was very well organised and informative and the trainers were very welcoming supportive and helpful. The whole experience was incredible.
    I would not hesitate to reccomend this facility and as and when needed will continue to attend relevant courses.

    The new location for Seascope is very easy to find when you come off the motorway and there's always parking available. Travelodge is a 5-7 minute drive from Seascope so very handy.
    Everyone at Seascope is amazing, they accommodate you & make you feel so welcome. They go above & beyond for all your needs, it was lovely & refreshing to meet such beautiful individuals. Thank you everyone at Seascope!! I'll be back in under 5 years for my refresher course.

    The best way to get to SeaScope Maritime training is to get yourselves to the junction of Jordan Street and Flint Street. Go through the gates of the selfstore car park. Continue to the bottom of the car park you will see a fire escape staircase, with a Seescope sign on it. Go along the path past the fire escape and enter the main building you enter the main building through the double doors, Seascope is on the top floor. (See photos attached.)
    **DON'T USE NORFOLK ST. ENTRANCE**

    High standards of training from friendly approachable tutors and staff. And there is plenty to do in the area too.
