For those that have asked for more info:
The course is run over 5 days out of Stonehaven, north east Scotland, and includes daylight and darkness operations in all sea states. (Don't blame me for the comma followed by "and", I'm just copying out of the mag!
Course price £1500 plus VAT 5% discount for Rib int subscribers
The training craft are two 8.75m Ribs, one twin petrol outboards, one twin inboard diesel/water jets.
Would take me all night to copy the lot (I don't type for a living!) but a couple of interesting elements of the course:
Open water and adverse sea state handling
Surf zone operations
Working alongside underway vessels
Transfer of personnel to other vessels
