    Waste of money. There's no help at all to find a job after training and to be honest it a pretty basic training. You don't really learn that much. I don't recommend it.

    If you live in SE Asia and need MCA approved STCW courses then this is the place to come. I completed STCW basic and advanced refresher courses here in December 2018. Facilities and staff all very good. Much cheaper than going back to the UK and I brought my family along and had a very nice break in Phuket too!

    It's not real position of the Academy, hoop they remove it because taxi bring you there and before you are at the actual place you've been driving around for an hour. Real time 10 min from airport in the Yacht Haven.
