| "I attended the Welcome Afloat course with one of my colleagues and we both came away with invaluable knowledge. Our trainer Amy was very knowledgeable and very professional on how she delivered the course.
I’ve been doing the same job for over 20 years and there is always something new to learn. The cost is reasonable and for an extra £20 we both came away with a City & Guilds qualification and, more importantly, a certificate for the office wall."
