Got letter through today from RYA telling me my commercial endorsement expires in a few weeks so I need to do it.

Just need to decide who to pay my money to.

Need to get my ml5 done as well. How much cash do doctors take the satisfaction of taking from you for the pleasure of their stamp and signature these days?

Here at Stormforce we've put quite a lot of effort into developing support for the PPR Course (including building a bespoke website with FAQs and a regularly updated blog - http://www.ppr-course.com) as we think we're ideally placed to offer support for it.

It's an interesting course to take, as it's largely focused on changing behaviour through understanding, rather than specifically imparting knowledge. This means that a lot of time is spent locating documents online and then searching through them, the idea being that whilst mariners might not know the legal 'ins and outs' of every situation, they will at least know where to look!

A couple of the Stormforce Crew were involved in the development of the course, and have been providing feedback on the pilot and development versions. Doug, our Principal, and Adie, our Chief Instructor, have both completed the course and spent a fair amount of their time going over and over it, ready for what we hope are a few enquiries.

We're going to be doing some very special offers to co-incide with the PPR Launch on the 2nd April - this won't interest you Tim (!), but Graham (hamster), please give us a call and we'll discuss why we think you should nominate us as your centre! Your money actually goes straight to the RYA, but nominated centres do get a small cut.

For anyone else who needs this course, would like their questions answered, or indeed would like to do a course that leads to a commercial endorsement, you can click here to book now, call us on 02380 231122, or e-mail us on nav@stormforce.biz.

Safe and Legal Ribbing,

The Stormforce Team

I paid 65 for my medical about 4 weeks ago. I did have a bit of argument with them as they wanted to charge me a 169 for the ML5 they told me this was a standard price. Even 65 is expensive for 20 minute blood pressure/eyesight and a questionaire!!!

I just paid 150 for my UKOG topside Medical and I asked the Doc for one to cover the Woodentops (Norwedian) sector and he whipped out another piece of paper, signed it and stung me for another 75 quid. Ouch

last ML5 cost me 75 quid my doc said it was what he charged for HGV medicals
