Expectations Hugely Surpassed – 5 Day Marine Refrigeration Course

I joined this course with the idea to top up my knowledge on the HVAC area . Instead of this, I feel a competent technician that can face any challenges that any HVAC system can set on the table. This course should be a must for any mid size yacht engineer . I am very happy that my expectations for this course have been hugely passed. Also a very environmentally course that make us think the importance to deal with problems and consequences of faulty equipment onboard. Truly very happy with the content and Stuart, great teacher!

The online course was very easy to follow and had helpful videos, lectures and course notes – Masterclass with Tutorial

I completed the 6 week online marine Refrigeration Masterclass and then took the practical assessment. The online course was very easy to follow and had helpful videos, lectures and course notes. Plus scenarios and Quizzes to test the knowledge of each section. Stuart was always available to call to clarify any issues with patience. The practical was good with one test rig to myself to work on and helpful instruction from Stuart. Ed Wigley May 2019
