What our students are saying about our courses...



So that’s the end of a fantastic 5 days training with professional people who look after you, talk to you and explain in depth what you are doing day-to-day. I’d like to thank Steve & Mike for all your help from Andrew, and John McLoughlin Shipping Ltd. Thanks again.

Just to let you know the Monday after my STCW training back last November I was put in contact with a yacht for potential employment. After 6 long weeks of intensive interviews, security checks and visa applications I have successfully been given the position of ETO on-board my new boat. I start next week and can’t wait! I’d like to thank you and the team for the training and I will be back for additional courses to keep enhancing my CV and knowledge.

Thank you very much for helping me out… You guys have been amazing, best school I’ve ever been too. I will, for sure, keep you updated. Got my Medical Eng1 in less then a month.

The course was great but another two more days to help me feel more secure in the whole subject. The instructor is very good, and I wish my professor were like him when I was in college (maybe I will have stayed longer!). I am very happy to have done this course, only one question, Why didn’t I do it before?

Isabelle Bazile

The teacher, Steve, was THE BEST. I am a hard student and he did great teaching for me. In general I can´t explain … I am so very thankful to you and I send you all my best, because YOU ARE THE BEST!

Fantastic 5 five days at the Academy, unreal experience with great and very professional stuff ? couldn’t ask for a nicer bunch of people. Great resources and facilities at Seahaven Academy and at the end of it all you feel part of the team.

Just completed my STCW course with Seahaven Maritime Academy and can’t praise them enough. Professional down to earth instructors, teaching in a fun and friendly manner. I’ve been working offshore for over 25 years and In an age where safety accreditation can cost the earth, these guys have the best prices I found anywhere and are several hundred pounds cheaper than their competitors which is ideal for those people just entering the marine industry and self-funding their training. I really can’t recommend this company enough. 5 stars all round.

Martin Peters

Student

As a complete beginner I thought this would be a little jaunt in a nice little boat, handshake and a certificate. No way near. From the outset, these guys are very professional, know what they are doing, put you at ease and are all very friendly. I learnt a great deal over my two day course and am now confident that I will be able to enjoy the holiday I have booked even more (we have booked a RIB for a few days). Well worth every penny. I cannot recommend these guys enough! Thank you!!

Mike Cranfield

Student

If you’re looking for training course for the Maritime Industry then look no further than these guys. I’ve had trouble in the past with learning and was nervous about passing the course but the support I had was second to none. The facilities were great and I’m going back in a few months time for more tuition. Great people and the training facility is easily reached by train.

Mike Saunders

Student

I have made my study Master Of Yachts 200 Ton Power here with Steve and I can honestly recommend this school to all of you who wants to get this level of education and knowledge. Steve is tough and fair and he knows everything on the business.

Patu Leppala

Had a great time learning from experienced professionals at Seahaven Maritime Academy. They make training interesting and fun and I felt we were all treated as individuals. I would highly recommend them to anybody looking to get trained to work at sea.

Steve and his team are amazing; the whole course was brilliant. They put a personal, family feel to every day. Big shout out to Pete and Kev on Fire Training, the wealth of experience and training they gave me was unreal, loved the 2 days. The physical was like The Crystal Maze on steroids, lol, and for someone with asthma I had no problems and felt safe the whole time. Chris, First Aid was brilliant with fake blood and everything. And, Tim, thank you all for everything. The price of this course is the best in the country. Well done to Seahaven Maritime, looking forward to coming back.

Russell Ally

I completed my STCW course here and I wouldn’t go anywhere else! The instructors they have are great. They are passionate about their job and taught so well that everything seemed fun and easy. It was taught at a good pace with lots of time and patience for any questions. I am confident I would be able to manage any situation they taught us. Don’t go anywhere else!!

Sarah Heckzo

Student

What a busy, stressful and hard working weeks but I am so glad as it was very worth it! I have learnt such a lot, particularly with Steve who has been a great support to me and always there to take the time to help me understand. Thank you so much for everything; it has been a real pleasure studying with Steve.

I can’t really speak highly enough of Seahaven Maritime Academy, The instructors are excellent, they are engaging and knowledgeable compared to what I’m used to where the instructors are mostly boring safety drones. I wish Oil and Gas course were as enjoyable and hands on as the courses you guys provide. I’ll be back in 5 years for the refresher.

Craig Matheson

Student

Fantastic course, very professionally run by friendly, deeply knowlegable staff at a truly outstanding price. I cant rate this academy highly enough, I’ll be back! Thanks for a really great week!
