Instructors seem well experienced and highly skilled, great team. Fun and informative.
Only wanted to put STCW95 on my CV but actually learned a lot and enjoyed it too. Instructors knew their stuff. Great and made the course fun/informative.
All instructors very knowledgeable, clear and well explained. Very processional, extremely friendly, lovely style of teaching. An extremely fun & practical course. All was explained fully and clearly so always felt safe and informed.
Highly skilled mixed background instructors, very enjoyable. Thank you.
Excellent knowledge all round. Obvious experience shown through skills. All instructors were extremely proffessional. Were great fun throughout. Great amount of practical work, yet enough classroom work to help with understanding everything. The facilities are top and very realistic. Great guys and I would recommend Beyond Limits Training to everyone. I WILL BE BACK!!
Great ratio of classroom/practical activities. Taught in a fun way. Learnt a great deal.
The course was thoroughly enjoyable, very hands on and delivered very professionally. Learnt a wide range of skills which I now feel more confident in using and will feel fully prepared for working on a yacht. Practical exercises enabled us to learn a lot better using real life scenarios to fully prepare us even more if any incident occurs during our time at sea.
All staff were very friendly, very knowledgeable to answer any questions and most of all a good sense of humor!
There were lots of first hand examples from the instructors which was good.
Fantastic knowledge, teaching above course requirements. We were all made to feel welcome, friendly and proffessional. The most enjoyable training I have taken part in. The pace of the course is great , making sure that everyone understands before moving on. Lots to learn but never rushed.
The instructors had a wide range of knowledge and plenty of experience. They went above and beyond to help me out, a great week. The course was useful, practical and engaging. All the instructors had experience in their fields & were extremely helpful and friendly. The equipment was of a high standard and all learning resources were well written and clear.
Instructors taught the whole course in a well paced manner. Experience of the instructors having worked in their field are better that those that have not. Very professional and pleasant at all times. The course, I felt, was very positive and paced so that everyone would succeed.
Excellent facility, good training in a relaxed way. Thank you very much.
Instructors seemed very experienced and gave everyone in the group good explanations and confidence to carry out each task. All instructors made you feel comfortable and made the day fun/exciting as well as useful. A very fun and enjoyable day that will provide me with useful knowledge I can take out into the world of work.
I thought the course was engaging and easy to follow. The instructors were clear and concise making it a lot easier to understand the information being taught to us.
I really enjoyed this course. Very informative and interesting, made you more aware of life threatening situations and I do feel I would be confident in any situation requiring first aid.
I now feel confident in attending an incident and dealing with a situation. I have thoroughly enjoyed this course, there was so much going on and I would highly recommend this course - as I already have to anyone who will listen!
Excellent course with good content. Very knowledgeable instructor who has vast experience of first aid.
Good knowledge and easy to take on, making you feel more confident about using First Aid.
Amazing, really enjoyed it. Made me rethink my career aspirations during the practical work. 10/10!
Situations relevant to our line of work, straight forward & broken into sections meant it didn't drag. Delivery of instructions and examples were great and easy to follow. Scenarios and role playing made techniques easier to learn. A concise, enjoyable and relevant course tailored to our needs on the spot.
Feel much more confident after today, course was interesting and easy to take in. Great course kept us interested on what could have been a slow day.
Good balance of delivery of lots of info in a short time. John's balance of experience, exceptional professional knowledge and good humour make for an entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable course.
Good, pragmatic, practical overview. A really solid overview of first aid from a practical and pragmatic perspective.
Clear instruction, instructors gave me the confidence to trust my ability if was ever called on.
Excellent course, really helpful instructors. It's a long time since I've done this sort of training so it was really useful.
Very clear and entertaining way of presenting information. Feel confident to tackle emergencies now.
I thought this course was very well delivered and easy to understand. I feel more confident that I could handle a medical emergency if the situation arises.
Very good pace, well explained, time for questions. Instructors were very knowledgeable, easy to approach and professional. A lot of info covered but at a very good pace, good recapping. Made very relevant to our clinical environment.
I have attended many courses before, but this is the most practical I've ever attended. The course was ideally suited to the participants and all basic expectations were covered.
For someone like me (i.e. Ex-Royal Navy) I didn't think it would be up to much but I was proven wrong. All instructors were excellent and the course content and structure was spot on for its intended purpose.
Easy to digest theory and hands on practical. Rugged and realistic facility with confident and experienced instructors.
Excellent set up. Great to see a 'survival' course not set in a warm pool!
I think the course taught me a lot and I would now feel more confident in an emergency. There was lots of practical work which makes it much easier to remember. Prepared you well for dealing with emergencies.
Fantastic instructors, very knowledgeable, approachable and professional...great range of experience between them. For me the more practical the better but it was structured well so I was constantly engaged. Fantastic, informative, fun and action packed week. All new to me so thoroughly enjoyed it can't believe how quick the week went.
Have learnt huge amounts this week. Theory and practicals linked well and practicals reinforced learning. All the guys have first-hand experience of situations reconstructed on the course which is perfect. Top notch!
They didn't just fire through a PowerPoint without explaining or ever backing it up or with practical demonstration. Instructors have lots of experience so able to back up knowledge with real life scenarios. Very good course, learnt a lot. Was good to learn the theory then back the knowledge up with practical.
Instructors first class and very knowledgeable. A very in-depth course, well presented with emphasis on candidates safety at all times. Well done guys!
I found the instructors brilliant and the facilities superb, well worth it.
Good coverage, well explained. Very professional well executed. Not too bogged down with classroom work, practical was excellent. Would definitely recommend, its a real experience. The location is perfect, the fire fighting is so real and truthful. It feels real but also you are aware if the professionals around you for reassurance and safety.
Each area was covered brilliantly and at the perfect pace. I think that this course would be useful for anybody entertaining at sea, even people on a cruise can lose the help of their crew, this would definitely aid in attitudes and panic and result in rescue / lifesaving.
Will recommend to colleagues. Excellent location with scope to expand and improve facility. Very relaxed and friendly attitude, realistic and honest.
No pressure at all, it’s all done at your pace. Will be rating Beyond Limits to all my friends that work in the marine industry. This course is amazing, goes well in depth into the practical side of things, i.e. the equipment, using it and what it’s like to wear. Really enjoyed it thanks to John.
Instructors were excellent - very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. The training facilities were very realistic.
Superb location, easy to get to and safe. Absolutely fantastic course from booking to completion. Great people, fun and inspirational. Teaching was second to none and overall the course was beyond expectations.
I thought John and his team were very professional and friendly, the skills I have learnt this week are not only great for the boating world but for life in general. I would recommend this course very highly to anyone.
Very real, excellently run course and tuition. Ready for an abandon ship.
Course run extremely well with confidence and competence. Would definitely recommend the facility.
The quarry / lake location is a good introduction to survival at sea due to the temperature of the water compared to a pool. Using immersion suits same as those found on most vessels is more realistic than t-shirts and shorts in a local pool.
The course was informative and well thought out. Trainers were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
All explained well, walked away with confidence. Excellent training, would highly recommend.
Informative, fun, great instructors, information was easy to digest and didn't feel under 'test conditions', relaxed atmosphere but also learnt a great deal.
The pace was a good steady flow, easy to follow. The facilities were very good and I enjoyed the fire engine! Would definitely recommend.
Very in depth course on all subjects 10/10. A very in depth course, well presented with emphasis on candidates safety at all times. well done guys!
I learnt a lot more than I thought I would. Learnt lots and had a good time with a great bunch of people.
Didn't just fire through a PowerPoint without explaining or ever backing it up with a practical demonstration. Equipment and facilities were good except for all the wasps! Very good week, learnt a lot.
Have learnt huge amounts this week. Theory and practicals linked well and practicals reinforced learning. All the guys have first hand experience of situations reconstructed on the course, which is perfect. Top Notch – cheers.
Cant fault it.Fantastic instructors, very knowledgeable, approachable & professional. Made to feel at ease immediately with a great range of experience.Fantastic, informative, fun & action packed week. All new to me so thoroughly enjoyed it.
The week went quickly, good speed with lots of time for questions. Every instructor knew what they were doing, gave lots of info and we felt very safe during the practicals. Loads of practicals which was great! Would recommend the course to others as the week was great, everyone was nice and the whole experience was fun. Would come back and do it all again.
The course was very good. I will certainly recommend it. Instructors are very helpful and friendly. I give it a five star!
I would definitely recommend it to friends wishing to do courses. Really good fun and prepared you well for dealing with emergencies. Very knowledgeable, professional with lots or real life examples.
I have recently completed my FPOSi course with Beyond Limits Training.
I cannot recommend them highly enough, the standard of training was superb. The medical training was covered extremely thoroughly whilst still taking time to ensure everyone understood, they had a serving Paramedic on the team who was again superb. The course concluded with a practical scenario that was extremely realistic using one of there outdoor venues.
I would 110% recommend Beyond Limits Training to anyone looking to do this or any other course, I will definitely use them again.
Many thanks for a great course.
Very good training, realistic, large range of knowledge. I would recommend to everyone. Professional courses.
Fantastic course i learnt a great deal would defo recommend it to everyone.
Brilliant course,brilliant instructors. I would highly recommend this training provider.
I have just completed my STCW95 course with. Beyond Limits & they really do go above & beyond!!!!
It was absolutely fantastic & I would 110% recommend this course to anyone! I had no idea what to expect on day 1 as I have never been to sea before, but the trainers - John & Tim were both brilliant. They were so knowledgable and encouraging, making the whole week fun as well as teaching everything they needed too!
The theory was great & wasn't boring at all, they incorporated real life situations in it which was great. We got to see all the sea survival kit and use it all too!! It was a real life raft in a quarry, with full Emersion kit on, which is a million times better than a swimming pool with shorts & tshirts!! It was so practical and hands on too! Thoroughly enjoyed it!
The fire safety was also brilliant, with 2 firemen, Rob & Paz leading this. They were both great and it was so hands on, they really encouraged everyone to get involved. It was hard work but great fun too & I learnt so much!!
All of the trainers were so enthusiastic and keen to hear about what we do with our courses. They took a real interest in us as customers and people. Not just wanting to do the bare minimum! They did more than enough for us is week and I would definitely recommend this course to anyone!! It was brilliant!!
In 5 years when I have to renew my course, il definitely be going back here!!!
Thanks guys! It was fab!!
I have had the pleasure of training with Beyond Limits on numerous occasions. Each time being exceptionally rewarding both intellectually and physically.
My personal favourite, to date, is the Survival at Sea course. This course was very demanding and put in to stark contrast just how important such training and knowledge is.
Every aspect of survival at sea was covered. Theory and practical application. Donning exposure suits is one thing, jumping from a height in to the water is another.... righting a capsized life raft in the water, whilst in an exposure suit, having just leapt from a great height in to the cold water starts to give the participant a very 'real world' view of what it is really like to abandon a ship at sea... and survive!
The team at Beyond Limits are all experts in their field. Each of whom display an eagerness to impart their knowledge and experience with all participants. The wealth of expertise is staggering, and all of this is garnered with a warm and friendly approach.... even on the coldest of days!
I really can't recommend Beyond Limits enough. It's more than training, it's life experience building, it's knowledge, it's empowerment and it could just save your life!
