STC-SA have some of the very best, brilliant, professional and experienced instructors out there. This was such a great experience, I will definitely come back again for a few other courses as well!

    Been trying to book for STCW course no luck. I called from 8am till 1pm no one is picking up the call in the admin department. I sent several emails no replies.
    Does this place really exist?
    What does one have to do to get assisted?

    I give it a 3 star rating because it's a nice facility and very good and professional staff. The only issue is the address, come on guys couldn't you find a nicer area? Hannah Road is very unsafe and there is way too much going on with the trucks and stuff. And don't get me started on the lack of parking space. Firstly, We have to park our cars on the street and then on your way out there is a huge chance that you will get mugged or hijacked. With the cost of your courses, I think, we the client deserve a much better venue. And a place where we can feel safe.

    Over the past 2 weeks several emails were sent to confirm bookings and payment for STCW courses including follow up emails but no reply and zero intrest. Completely and utterly useless! Better do your courses in Cape Town for efficient and professional service.
