Doh - sorry Martin - my comment wasn't aimed at you or indeed anyone specific - just another example of how hard it is to get anything off the ground here as there is a lot of talk and no action

Wasn't able to chat today at Ally Pally, but will have a look and see if any of the dates are appropriate.

Out of interest, does the certificate have a time scale you have to show in order to upgrade to comercial status on say your Advanced Powerboat certificate.

Thanks

I am pretty sure they do. The course maximum is 16 and the last count was 7 or 8, I think.

You can get the info here:

I've been off sick for a couple of days, and I must say that Ribnet has been a great boost for the morale - except that it hurts when I laugh

Maybe in the STCW/MCA world but not on our Sea Survival courses. This is not a pass/fail course. There is no formal assessment/exam. If you canít climb into the raft unaided then you will hopefully have learnt something. I would say about 15% of students can't (partly depends on which raft we use on a given day) but they still get there certificate. The aim of the day is to improve peopleís chances of survival if the worst ever happens.

The only financial circumstances that changed were that you tried to put a commission fee onto the discounted Ribnet price and take a profit off other ribnet members while still getting a free place from me. I then told you the Ribnet discount was not for you to mark up, handled the bookings myself and withdrew your free place.

No, however some larger employers own risk assessments dictate training takes place every 2,3 or 5 years. Likewise offshore racers who use this as part of their ISAF training get 5 yrs on the ticket. The MCA code however does not time expire Sea Survival for the purpose of commercial endorsements.
