“Powerboat Level 2 Training Review. - Jan 2014”

Written on: 27/01/2014 by Newrylands (1 review written)

My son and myself have just completed the Level 2 Power Boat Course with www.solentboattraining.co.uk. This was our first real introduction to Powerboat and I must say we were both very nervous prior to starting the course. However the moment we arrived at the training centre, the instructor put us both at ease with his confident calm manner. The course touches on all aspects of powerboating and the combination of training room and practical application of skills on the water worked really… Read Full Review

“RYA First Aid course”

Written on: 09/11/2013

One-day First Aid course - excellent. This was my first time, all other students were updating existing First Aid qualification. Instructor went at a speed I could keep up with but without boring everyone else. Lively, memorable and good touches of humour. Also very practical in adapting first aid procedures to conditions of a boat at sea… Read Full Review

“Informative and effective”

Written on: 29/10/2013 by Tim2328 (1 review written)

I completed the RYA level 2 powerboat course as necessary for ICC qualification and enjoyed the course. The mix of theory and practical work was very well paced and allowed for practical consolidation where appropriate. The option to stay on one of the companies larger yachts overnight on the Saturday was a real benefit. The boats are very well equipped and comfortable and make planning the stay completely trouble free. I would have no hesitation in recommending Solent Boat Training and would… Read Full Review

“Best decision I ever made!”

Written on: 25/09/2013 by dannyTheCoach (1 review written)

I had been looking around the web and in person at companies to Learn with and to Charter from. Have family in Southend, Scotland and Lincoln so I did cast the net wide. Something about how easy to use the site was made me try these guys in Southampton. I pinged and email and made a call..well.. from that first contact I have felt like I have expert friends in the industry.I have met or trained with almost every member of the team but can't mention names here. I have chartered the Ribs and… Read Full Review

Very good course, Ollie was a very knowledgable teacher and was able to answer any questions we had, very friendly and relaxed couple of days. Will certainly come back to do the intermediate course with you guys. Thanks for a great couple of days learning a new skill, and the free accommodation on your brand new luxury yacht.

“Excellent course!”

Written on: 05/09/2013 by PipPerry (1 review written)

My husband and I completed the Powerboat Level 2 course mid August. We were very impressed with the whole set up. To have no more than 3 of us on the course and to tailor the level from a 15yr old to 44yr old was no mean feat! Our instructor Olly was brilliant and had the patience of a saint. The balance of classroom and practical was spot on for us. To do both across both days, meant we implemented what we had learned in the morning and attempted to perfect the following day too. We… Read Full Review

“RYA VHF radio course”

Written on: 03/09/2013 by jaabarron (1 review written)

The course was excellent, and there was a good balance between presenting the information required to pass the examination and practical exercises involving the radio sets. Our instructor was very willing to discuss things further and to answer questions. He had expected us to have read the RYA VHF book beforehand which hadn't been mentioned in the pre-course communications - however in the end the course was sufficient to pass the short exam at the end and receive the radio licence… Read Full Review

“Terrific Taster Day for a Nautical Newbie!”

Written on: 30/08/2013 by Carriecot (1 review written)

I joined the guys at Solent Boat Training (SBT) at the end of June 2013 for a taster day. Although a qualified and experienced yachtswoman, my work commitments had kept me off the water for a while and the SBT taster day was just what I needed.The skipper was young and enthusiastic and quickly established a rapport with everyone. His calm manner was reassuring, ideal for the total novice, giving the impression of a safe environment for learning and enjoyment. His enthusiasm and professionalism… Read Full Review

“Best RYA PB2 Team by far.”

Written on: 29/08/2013 by SimonDouglas (1 review written)

A big thanks to Bo and the team at SolentBoatTraining. Could not fault the service and experience. Great kit and location. I did a lot of online research and you guys came up with the goods going above and beyond when our overnight stay broke down at the last minute. Would recommend your team to anyone considering getting on the water and look forward to seeing you at Southampton Boat Show 2013 where I will be booking for the advanced course… Read Full Review

“Jet ski course”

Written on: 29/08/2013 by Maskrey28 (1 review written)

I recently took part in a course for jet skiing, I found the experience excellent and would strongly recommend it to any one. I found the course brilliant as I have no experience with any kind of jet ski before the instructor soon taught you the basic controls, before being aloud out on the Solent. I found the course a great mix of theory n practical time on the ski. And at the end of the day had a great final experience on the skis. Would deffonatley recommended this to any one with a light… Read Full Review

“Power Boat Level 2 course”

Written on: 28/08/2013 by MattGodwin (2 reviews written)

A great two days training on the Solent with a good balance of practical and theory. Loads of time to watch others and practice myself. The weather was great and good company with the other two trainee's. The boat and equipment was in great shape and all practice areas were covered. Our instructor was good fun and knowledgable, but made us think in a a safety focused way. Came away feeling confident and ready to start the next part of my boating career. Well worth doing for anyone wanting… Read Full Review

“Jet-Ski for a wrinkly”

Written on: 28/08/2013

At 66 I thought I would be too old for this 1 day course, but was pleasantly surprised. A helpful 'theory' morning was followed by lots of hands-on in the afternoon on the Solent. Both instructors were competent and knowledgeable and I am delighted with my International Certificate of Competence which I applied for after the course. Good value for money… Read Full Review

“RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course”

Written on: 27/08/2013 by BrianofPurley (1 review written)

An excellent course presented by a very capable and knowledgeable tutor. The pace of tuition was tailored to suit our level of knowledge and skill. The course was fun and the theory aspects of the course were delivered in a very engaging and down to earth way. The practical aspects of the course were delivered in a very enjoyable way with great emphasis on safety, applying common sense when on the water and performing the techniques correctly. When we didn't get it right first time we were… Read Full Review

“Solent boat training, simply the best.”

Written on: 27/08/2013 by nigelhumphreys (1 review written)

An excellent, friendly and comprehensive course, delivered in a sympathetic and reassuring manner and geared to your level of ability. Arriving a little apprehensive I was immediately put at ease and thoroughly enjoyed the two day Powerboat Level 2, course which was extremely informative and professionally delivered. I was amazed how much you can learn in just two days. If you want enthusiastic and professional instructors, excellent facilities and equipment in the impressive Ocean Village… Read Full Review

“The training received was very thorough and all theory...”

Written on: 27/08/2013 by Blandford (1 review written)

The training received was very thorough and all theory was explained clearly and in lots of detail. Once on the water most procedures that needed to be learned e.g mooring alongside were repeated so that all students had a go and this was very useful and most of the mistakes that can be made were made. The instruction throughout the pb2 course was very clear and easy to understand. I really enjoyed my course and am looking forwar to being able to drive bigger ribs on holiday! Thank you for such… Read Full Review
