Is JBT Marine Training for me?
JBT Marine has been running since the turn of the century and as such we believe we have accumulated a great knowledge base which we would like to share. Our courses are run by a handful of highly qualified instructors, many of which are full time staff.
We believe the best way to learn is in a relaxed environment where you can ask any questions or practice any maneuver until you are 100% happy with it. For you this means if come to us for a shore-based course we will have a maximum of 6 - 8 people per instructor, for a practical course we will adapt the tuition around you and your personal needs and we can even train you on a boat specific to your needs.
All of our training is carried out in one of our training rooms on site and practical courses use an up to date training RIB with Colour GPS and Depth Sounder, Hydraulic steering, electric start engine and secure seating for all onboard.
We also offer ladies only courses and practical group courses for up to 9 people between various craft giving you that all important experience in different boats.
