“Powerboat Advanced Excellence”

Written on: 15/11/2012 by rolfaro00 (1 review written)

Not only was I privileged enough to have the boat and instructor to myself (can't thank the guys at Solent Boat Training enough for that), the course was delivered exactly how it should be. I had already got my PB2 and YM Power a few years ago, and fell behind with my practical experience. I knew that all the knowledge was somehwere in the back of my brain and that the instructor would need to help me tap back into it. That is exactly what happened and thanks to his patience and guidance I… Read Full Review

“RYA level2 powerboat”

Written on: 14/11/2012 by JerryFT (1 review written)

Really good course, concentrating on making students the safest they can be, anticipating issues and planning to avoid problems at every stage. I particularly enjoyed the 'passage' from planning it in the charts, to executing it. The slow speed handling techniques were well-taught and the pace of learning was sufficiently challenging to keep everyone engaged all the time… Read Full Review

“PB2”

Written on: 12/11/2012 by pmaxwell (2 reviews written)

As a complete novice to boating I was a little apprehensive but there was no need! Very good practical and theory course, ably taught by Matt and great fun too. I now feel confident enough to take a small boat out with the knowledge gained of how to prepare and safely handle the boat as well as the 'rules of the road'. This is a professional setup and they deliver.Highly recommended… Read Full Review

“RYA Powerboat 2 (Coastal) ”

Written on: 08/08/2012

I have been boating for well over 20 years and had no official qualifications so i went on this course to get a certificate and qualify for chartering and Insurance in the med etc. I was most surprised to find out what i didn't know! Then what i thought i knew was only half the story. The instructor kept a great pace throughout the day and continually checked that everyone understood everything at each stage, mixing practical with theory so it kept the interest level high and the enjoyment… Read Full Review

A great day deleiverd by an engaging trainer, we studided the basic theory of the powerboat how it operates and the influence of the elements. Everything about the two days was practicaly based, we talked about, we then did it. Checking the Powerboat, the equipment, leaving the berth (and returning). Handling the Powerboat, moving about safely, collision avoidance,Red Cans, Green Cans,Cardinals etc. Lots of confirmation and checking by the trainer!Man Overboard, Passage Planning, S and U turns!… Read Full Review

“Power Boat 2”

Written on: 30/07/2012 by Brackenbram (1 review written)

Solent Charters & Training are a very Friendly & professional company, with great equipment, staff and instruction. From the point of booking the administration was as expected and declared on the website. The joining instructions arrived on time and gave the details I needed. On arrival a warm welcome and short overview was provided by Chris along with a meet and greet of my other course members. We were soon going through some basics and then down to the RIBS for safety instruction… Read Full Review

“Power Boat Two Course.”

Written on: 30/07/2012 by Dinx (1 review written)

We took this course as a family and it was exactly what we needed to introduce us to the ways and rules of the waterways and as an introduction to power boating. Not too much classroom work before getting on with the practical side and was as educational as it was fun to learn… Read Full Review

“Good value for money”

Written on: 16/07/2012 by rhayley (1 review written)

I was looking for a refresher course as I have a boat and hadn't been out in it for a number of years, I also needed the ICC cert for Europe. I cant say enough good things about the course, from the start Peter the course instructor explained every thing very clearly. As there are only 3 people on each course you get lots of chance to skipper the boat and practice all the necessary skills. Approximately three quarters of the time is spent on the water carrying out the tasks rather then just… Read Full Review

“RYA Jet Ski Course”

Written on: 11/07/2012

Cant fault attitude of staff, great bunch of people. Not so sure about the structure of the course though. I know they have to follow the RYA sylabus but being in a training job myself i felt there was gaps in the knowledge imparted. How about launching and recovery of a Jet Ski from a slipway or floating dock ? Would have been useful. I think all class work should have been in the a.m. then have all afternoon free to play. Wasn't keen on getting back into a damp wetsuit again after lunch… Read Full Review

“RYA PWC Course”

Written on: 11/07/2012

Sean was a fantastic instructor, clearly setting out the course goals, following through each stage and then recapping at the end. Throughout the course he added an element of fun and made sure we could test the capabilities of the jet ski without forgetting safety and stating in control. The not so great weather didn't prevent me from having a fantastic day. Now I've just got to buy a jet ski!!… Read Full Review

“A great way to learn basic marine rules”

Written on: 11/07/2012

A fantastic short course on basic marine 'rules of the road' as well as jet skiing ! Knowlegwble and approachable coaches/staff, great skis. By the end of the day I felt confinent in my marine trafic skills, skiing as well as taking care of my ski. 5 stars! But if you get the chance to do the two day 'full monty' course, then please do! You most likely will get a ski to yourself and not have to share... More time on the waves!… Read Full Review

This was a great course and good value for money. The instructor was extremely friendly, enthusiastic and knew how to get his knowledge across. It was amazing what was covered within only two days. All the equipment was in impeccable condition. We had terrible weather on the first day, but still enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended course with this company… Read Full Review

“Excellent course, professional and lots of fun !”

Written on: 30/06/2012 by TomS4 (1 review written)

I have just completed the RYA POwerboat Level II and am very happy to give some feedback. It was excellent ! Instruction was predominantly "hands on" out on the water which was so much more effective than any classroom session would have been. I never felt rushed or under pressure. The instructor explained things very clearly and ensured everyone had plenty of time to practice. Safety was clearly always the top priority. This was done in a practical way that felt very natural without talking… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/06/2012 by AlChatel (1 review written)

After looking online for a course provider, quickly discovered the guys a Solent Boat Training, great location, easy access and most importantly a well structured and delivered course. Limited to 3 people really felt we all got amazing value for money. After following the course we were then asked what we would like to practice more of, for me that was mooring and docking. Super friendly and very professional would recommend to anyone wanting not just to pass the course but to learn what they… Read Full Review
