Student Feedback:

"I can highly recommend Ocean Training Online. From my initial contact, right through the course and beyond I have felt supported and encouraged by a friendly and professional team with a wealth of knowledge and expertise. The course materials arrived promptly by post with all the instructions necessary to get started. In particular I have appreciated the speed of response to any questions I have had.

My tutor was excellent. Just the right amount of extra detail was supplied around the answers to the tutor marked assignments. Any of my mistakes were corrected fairly and with a light encouraging touch. Again, the assignments were marked and returned sometimes within hours and at the longest I think about one day!

I will definitely use Ocean Training Online again for my future training.
