Advanced RIB Training Courses

Looking through a back issue of RIB International recently I saw an advert for DMP Technologies / North Sea Services offering courses in extreme boat handling, surf handling, close quarter handling etc. What happened to this company and who offers similarly interesting courses today?

Exactly. Surf is never there when you want it (and often there when you don't).

On the other hand, there are a number of places where there are tidal opportunities to find challenging conditions. The Falls of Lora can provide some pretty interesting opportunities (!), and we quite regularly use the Dorus Mor for training
