just done theses courses at SWAC

Hi Matt
We found the team at SWAC (Southampton water activity centre) very good.
you can either choose to do sea survival on saturday and 1st aid on Sunday. thus achieving both in a single visit. We choose seperate days because of other commitments.
good luck with it..
Paul

Warsash

I'm booked in at Warsash (Southampton) for a Norwegian Offshore refresher course next week (firefighting, survival and first aid). I'll let you know what the facilities are like.....I tried booking a refresher course in Plymouth, it turned out that their courses don't fulfill the Norwegian sector requirements. I had to decide on either Warsash or Fleetwood as they were the nearest venues to Cornwall.

Cheers Rich
