Where to train.

Simple question complex answer I suspect.

I looking to do the Level 2 course somewhere costal and some where reasonable close to Manchester so any where on the NW or NWales coast I guess.

Who would you recommend and why?

My thoughts so far

Safewater - well recommended but much more expensive than most
Seawake - good price and location
Plas Menai - likewise.

Cheers

I did mine at Safewater, 10yrs ago now, but they were/are very good, have you tried asking for a cheaper quote, they do like a bit of wheeling n dealing

Plas Menai, did mine last year, good price (even staying over for two nights) cheaper than premier inn etc, went up and down Menai straights several times.

Not sure if they're doing training at the moment, but Wavelength (who operate out of the Wyre just North of Blackpool) were brilliant. Very friendly family team and excellent, sensible teaching methods.
Top catering too!
