    did my STCW train and was great as trainers where great at informing us and training us. only feedback is that the fire training facility could use showers as its very much needed after wearing full PPE and doing training exercises.

    Recently done the BOSIET course with Stream marine and couldn’t fault any bit. Nicole was a great trainer and very thorough. Was also quite nervous but the instructors put me at ease very quickly. Would definitely recommend.

    Great facilities, very VERY accommodating. Did a course Mon - Fri and I was very pleasantly surprised. No corners cut, safety is 100% and the value for money is probably the best in the UK.
    If you're hesitating between training centers and SMT is on your list, book it here. If not on your list - it is should be...

    Really enjoyed my training at Stream Marine. The instructors made me feel relaxed with the whole process, from the very start.
    The training facilities are excellent, with every aspect of the equipment being of a very high standard
    A great choice of tea/coffee(free) and extensive lunch menu are also included in your training package.
    Overall a great experience, with highly competent instructors & a very relaxed but safety conscious atmosphere.

    Divers and assisting staff couldn't have been better, good facilities and good location.
    Be prepared to be spoke to like a soldier and a child by Gina who takes the course. Didn't like being questioned to the point I got ignored.
    She spends a lot of time waffling on about herself when all you want to do is crack on with the course and get home.
    Apart from her id highly recommend stream marine , great price too.

    I completed my Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training with Stream Marine Training this week. Both trainers Jena and Mark were very knowledgeable and highly experienced. I felt confident and safe every step of the way. I would highly recommend Stream Marine Training to anyone. Also, they have the best course prices, which is why I travelled to train here from Aberdeen.

    Carried out the GWO Basic Safety Training and STCW Basic Safety Training. The instructors were brilliant, they knew their stuff and made the learning enjoyable throughout the week.

    I’ve recommended Stream Marine Training to a few of my offshore colleagues and a few agencies I’ve worked with due to the professional nature and the competitive pricing.

    The instructor Niall doesn’t make you feel at ease in his classes (FPFF + PST), often taking the piss out of people and acting like he’s still in the Royal Navy. My class was too scared and intimidated to answer most questions in case we got them wrong. He needs to speak to people with more respect. Niall also went around the class asking everyone what their salary was and that he was on £34k as an instructor at SMT which was unprofessional. He got offended when some people said they earned double his salary. He then asked if he could get a job with that company as he has 32 years experience in the Royal Navy.

    I renewed my STCW certificates here September 2021. Good instructors. The fire fighting facility has no showers and you have to walk to the other side of the airport (to Stream House) to get a shower. Not ideal when your stinking of smoke and sweating buckets after fighting fires!

    Was booked on route 1 FRB refresher the 20th August and the course was delayed due to another ongoing course. I knew something was wrong when they pushed Two tea breaks onto us within an hour and this is after starting late aswell. According to the itinerary the second part of the course was in Greenock from 1500 till 1700, we were still in the course centre at Paisley at 1615. I raised my concerns that I wouldn't be back to Paisley training centre in time to check my hold luggage in and they showed no interest whatsoever and said I would need to come back on another date. On top of the original course price I have had flights and accommodation to pay for and there attitude is I will have to pay again because they are double booking there training venues to reap more money. When I booked the course I asked the reception what time I would be back in Paisley so I book flight and I was assured it would be 1700. Also throughout the day myself and another candidate raised concerns with the instructors about getting back for 1700 and they said not a problem. Due to stringing people along people were unable to change flights

    I did a Medical First Aid training, instead of Medical Care what I have booked. Even I did plenty first aid trainings already and myself also First Aid Instructor, I should say the Instructor during the training was very good he knows more than requested for this training, professional and kind. No Scottish accent at all.
    I had some issues because of booking, but the administrative staff was flexible and we solved the issue in 2-3 min. Highly recommended for seafarers.

    What a service and team, from the reception staff, instructors to the back room staff. All course i attended were delivered professionally with the odd splattering of humour thrown in making them informative and funny. The facilities and equipment are modern and well maintained.I personally struggled with one particular part of a course, which required a few visits but the team stuck with me and helped me too get through it. Thanks one and all Dan.

    I was told to arrive and received joining instructions for the wrong day, costing me a days work and travel costs. When I tried to complain, I got nowhere, like they could not care less. The courses themselves were pretty average, and taught without much interest or enthusiasm. Free parking though.

    I had my fire prevention update course today and was so impressed that I decided to book my survival technique course when I got home. It was 17:30 when I booked it and out of hours. I contacted SMT on Facebook and explained that I booked after hours and didn’t have any joining instructions. They went the extra mile and ensured that I had everything I needed within a few hours so that I could go to sleep knowing everything was in place. Fantastic service and I would fully recommend.
