Courses run over 6 days, we usually run this over 3 weekends but we can organise it through the week if you have a minimum of two people.


We always offer a 'one to one' package where you can book our instructor to deliver the course to you either at our venue or yours at a time to suit you - please see the relevant listing for further information.


We provide endless free tea/coffee, all materials required for the course and a home cooked hot lunch each day.


Included in your course cost are your own dividers, chart plotter and all training charts which you can keep for future use.
