Derek was a great instructor, very knowledgeable, lots of hands on practice, great teaching style “by doing” and always fun. Would recommend this course to anyone. If there is a way to get your ASA 106, this it it! I highly recommend that you do ASA 105 before starting this course so you are not stuck down below studying, missing out on the action on deck.” Kristina Schmidt, 3 – 12 December, 2015.
