    Very good service and pleasant and attentive staff.
    Something quite negative is a bit of lack of seriousness, children/children of a participant during the practical and explanatory classes between us, taking photos and joking. Some participant singing and dancing...etc..
    Too much fun being important and NOT CHEAP courses.
    They looked like cooking class more than STCW.
    In general little control of seriousness.
    Another point, it is not the fault of the obituary, but it would be good in the case of updating the course to add FIRST AID.

    For me it has been an incredible experience, not only have I acquired a lot of new knowledge, I have also met incredible people with whom I have strengthened ties during the days we have shared.

    Professional, qualified, and above all, I greatly value the effort they have put into teaching us how to best put into practice the new knowledge that could one day save our life or someone else's.

    Thank you very much for everything Hugo and Carmen, it has been a pleasure to have you as teachers/instructors.

    Very interesting course! I have discovered a new world that amazes me as well as terrifies me, but Hugo has made me see it from his experience, from his love for sailing, and I loved it. Thank you for this experience.

    They taught us the STCW in Madrid and it was a shame.

    The teachers were not informed even of the group to whom they had to teach the course. And therefore it was not adapted. Half of the information, due to our condition, was of no use to us, leaving vital issues in our work unexplained.

    The book is chaos. Not corresponding to the power points.

    Very weak practices. We did 3 exercises of the 14 that appeared in the Index.

    We have left UNFORMED.

    Hello, good evening, I apologize for the delay in publishing my opinion about the school.
    I have had the opportunity to take the Basic Training courses in Maritime Safety, Maritime Protection and Passenger Ships. I must say that, of all the institutes where I have taken the OMI courses, you, the El Faro School, far exceeded my expectations, the teaching system and the human quality of its members is, by and large, wonderful. The level of professionalism of Hugo, and of each of the instructors with whom I was lucky enough to receive classes, (the first aid girls, the Maritime Protection Col., Eric from the practices, and not least, the girls of administration), in short, as they say here, "you are machines. I thank you, with all my heart, for helping me with this instruction. In the same way, I thank God for having come across you and the wonderful group with whom I shared during the time of studying these courses.
    I recommend them with my eyes closed, both to those who have experience and to those who are just starting out in this wonderful world of navigation. "Good wind and good sea"

    I enrolled in this academy to take the professional course of Basic Maritime Safety Training (STCW). The knowledge and good work of the teachers who give us theory and practice is very high, I am very satisfied and learning a lot, and without a doubt I would enroll with this academy again in a new course I take.

    I successfully completed the revalidation of my Basic Security Training last week, in a period of two days. The course was practical and was carried out in person, following the guidelines established by the SCTW (Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers).

    The course program was divided into two parts. The first consisted of pool exercises that involved the use of survival equipment, such as life jackets, rafts and immersion suits. The second part focused on the handling of firefighting equipment, including fire extinguishers, hoses and breathing apparatus.

    He had previously studied this course within a degree at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Náutica de Santander and completed three other advanced courses at the Jovellanos Center.
    My previous experience allowed me to appreciate that this course met all the standards expected for a program of this nature. Furthermore, the issuance of the certificate of sufficiency by the DGMM was carried out without problems.

    I send a cordial greeting to the instructors and thank you for the opportunity to have participated in this course.

    Faro Maritime School STCW is the best School!!! And the best group of colleagues!!
    A brilliant beacon that will enlighten you with knowledge and skills in the fascinating world of maritime navigation.
    The teachers not only have deep theoretical knowledge, but also have extensive practical experience in nautical, first aid and police. Their ability to convey complex concepts in a clear and accessible manner makes the learning process fluid and engaging. Always willing to provide additional advice, resolve doubts and share anecdotes that enrich the understanding of the topics. Real master classes!!! The facilities and resources are top notch. The entire team is great, very professional as well as friendly.
    Ultimately, a combination of excellent teachers, high-quality resources and a focus on the importance of safety, maritime responsibility and respect for the environment make it an enriching and transformative experience.

    I decided to set my life on course again and go back to the sea, they recommended the school to me. I have to say that my experience in it has been the closest thing to feeling at home.
    Hugo!!!! Very direct and close...
    Lucía was charming, María was very attentive and with Lola great communication.
    Highlight the great PROFESSIONALISM, DEMAND AND PATIENCE of CARLOS GUERRA, a teacher who makes his classes very fun, with his experience and delicacy, solving all possible doubts. After 15 consecutive days of the course, I did not want it to end because every day makes that you get more hooked ..
    We'll definitely see you back...

    The level of this school is excellent by all accounts.
    Both for its internal management, the faculty, treatment and dedication to students and the requirement of their courses.
    Without a doubt, they are and will be a national benchmark in terms of nautical training.

    I just finished the basic training course in maritime safety. And it is worth noting the unbeatable treatment from the first moment. Excellent teachers! The price of the courses very well! And in practice I had a great time! It was a little cold in the water ones for the dates we are on! But I would repeat again!!! For the next courses that I am going to do, I will choose this school without a doubt!
