    We recently completed the RYA PWC instructors course at marine education. I can highly recommend the school, the course was completed under tricky circumstances due to COVID-19 however we didn’t feel this retracted anything away from the course and it’s content. We have all taken a lot away from the course and will certainly return/ recommend to friends as and when needed.

    I recently completed my RYA PWC course with Marine Education on the top of the range Yamaha waverunners with Candi, the level of knowledge was absolutely outstanding and I've learnt so much from her! The course was thoroughly enjoyable and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to complete their RYA PWC course. Cant wait to get back and complete my RYA powerboat instructor course!

    I completed my powerboat level 2 and my SRC marine radio course. The powerboat course was excellent I found Jason an excellent teacher explaining everything in good detail and making it easy to learn not going on to the next thing before we were all confident with the task. I know feel a lot more confident at taking my boat out on my own. The radio course was online learning with a practical and theory exam I was put at ease by Candy who allowed me to take the exams after the powerboat training on day one.
    I would totally recommend marine education to get you on the water safely and confidently.

    Last week I completed the three day PB Instructor Course with Marine Education, and what a week it was!
    Felt very fortunate to have Candy as the trainer, with her no nonsense approach and wealth of experience. After three pretty intense days I came away feeling confident about instructing, and with a new found respect for teachers everywhere!

    The combination of single engined RIB and a dual engined Whaler really helped with the breadth of the course.

    Quality education with quality trainers and equipment!

    Today I was given all the tools to complete my RYA PWC certificate. The instruction was first rate, the equipment brilliant, and, although the sea state was challenging, all the teaching was completed. Plus, it was immense fun, in beautiful surroundings. I would thoroughly recommend any RYA course run by Candy, and her team.

    I undertook my powerboat level 2 course with Marine Education last weekend. They were excellent and I would recommend them without hesitation. The course was a good mix of practical and key theory and things were explained and taught in a very clear and helpful way. Booking was extremely easy with quick response times to emails and questions. The instructor was excellent. I would definitely use them again for additional courses.

    Great day on the water in Poole Harbour and out to sea down to Old Harry rock in the Marine Education boat whilst completing my RYA Level 2 Powerboat certificate

    I recently undertook the two day RYA powerboat level 2 course with Candi as our instructor.
    I could not recommend the course and Candi highly enough.
    The two days included both slow and fast speed boat handling techniques, a class room session and a passage plan exercise.
    It was just myself and two others on the course so there was plenty of time to get behind the wheel. Candi really took the time to answer our questions and make sure everything was explained clearly.
    The boat itself, a Boston Whaler, was also really nice and well kept. Lunch was had at the Lake Yard restaurant where the food was delicious.
    Overall a very enjoyable experience.

    I'd just like to thank Marine Education for 2 fantastic days out in Poole Harbour. My instructor was really professional, calm at all times and really knowledgeable. I'm amazed at how much I learned! I would definitely recommend Marine Education if you want to learn how to be safe on the water.
