Training centres

Hi,

not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but can anyone recommend any of the training centre's in the south-west that offer the Advanced Powerboat Certificate. It's all very well looking at the school's website, but I do believe in getting personal recommendations.

though I guess you're all going to be too nice to each other, and tell me that they are all wonderful, and let's humour the new kid

Colin, many thanks,

looked at the Dartmouth school, forgot to look at the Brixham & Dartmouth school... my mistake.

Don't suppose anyone knows about the Tiger Bay school, as it means no overnighting anywhere (which, believe me, would be a good thing...)

I e-mailed Tiger Bay earlier this week, but had no reply. Do they close for Christmas? It's not that I'm in a rush...

What area are you looking at doing your course?
What Course are you looking at doing?
When are you hoping on taking your Course?
The South west is quite a large area!

If your looking at Southampton area from what I have heard they are all well recomended!! There might possibly be another RTC opening up in the Southampton area in the next couple of months! And I have been tols that they are Highly Recommended by many from their other site!
