Some of the things our clients have to say:

Thank you and the team at Sea School for all your help and assistance in submitting my application for Coxswain. Alexandra sent through my certificate of qualification this morning.
It has been a great experience dealing with your company from Finn to everyone one else that has helped along the path. Please pass on my positive feedback to all. Much appreciated, Thank You

Dean Gleeson

You and your team have been fantastic. I always recommend Sea School to my wide range of friends in the boating scene wherever I can based on my experiences.

Jefferson Bacon

I would just like to thank David Boon. He is a great teacher. As for myself I was a young boy who fell through the cracks in school, so I was just hands on in my life for jobs. Now at 56 years old, I have my dream of when I was a kid. Now that I have my skipper ticket, it's still sinking in. It has come true for me. I'm over the moon. So this is for everyone who thinks you can't do well, you can find your dreams come true just like me.

Doing my general purpose deckhand course through Sea School International after 6 years of sailing has been the most rewarding personal development training I have done in years. I have definitely been able to take parts of my training back out onto the water already.

Our Trainer was highly skilled and responsive to my individual training needs. I also genuinely enjoyed meeting fellow participants and the overall whole experience. I now look forward to learning more and putting my skills into paid practice

P.Springham, GPH Graduate

Preparing to return to commercial maritime work, 35 years (and a number of career changes) after first working as a deckhand, was a bit daunting. The Sea School staff helped me navigate (literally) through the intricacies of maritime operations with a firm hand on the shoulder and words of wisdom gained through years in the industry.
Indeed, the little gems of advice and insight provided in the course of delivering the theoretical and practical training were absolutely priceless both in instilling confidence in performing coxswain duties and in preparing to undertake the 'orals' assessments.

These guys are great. Qualified coxswain through them - can't recommend their approach and process enough

After completing my Master 24 NC and MED 2 with the team at Burleigh over the past few months, I just wanted to convey my appreciation of the crew who were all very good, making my experience so beneficial.

Trevor my main tutor has an amazing wealth of knowledge of all things nautical and mechanical and can relate to students in easy understandable terms making the learning process enjoyable.
Peter is also outstanding in his vast knowledge and experience gained over a lifetime as a mariner and relates to students professionally and effectively.
Finn is a fun guy to be around and although I only did a few modules with him, could see that he is extremely good also and future students will benefit greatly from his guidance.
Hannah, Alex, Bridget and Madison the kind and upbeat ladies I dealt with in the admin team and had many phone and email encounters with, just make it all happen so easily, many thanks to them also. I wish the entire team at Seaschool all the best and hope I can do further training with you down the track.

Peter Kidd

Great course and great environment. Will be back to do masters. Chris is an awesome instructor, massive raps to him.

Ben Jefferson

Just a short note to highlight the great learning experience I recently had as a student on the Coxswain Grade 1 course, facilitated by Mark Farrell.
The course was well run and I learnt (and re-learnt!) an immense amount. This was largely due to the efforts, knowledge, skills, background and high levels of EQ possessed by our instructor Mark. In addition, the pre-course administration and communications was strong.
His approach was relaxed in an adult learning environment, buttressed by an extraordinary depth of subject matter expertise. There were some real gems in his interactive instruction.
As a Senior Australian Army Officer and instructor in most Special Force skill sets, I really appreciated the way Mark imparted his knowledge on the collective student group and ensured we not only knew what was required as per the course syllabus, but also armed us with the additional learned experience he has absorbed over a career as a seafarer.
A wonderful learning experience and I will be back to attempt the Masters 45 course at some point soon.

Matthew Stephens

Just some mid course feedback if of any use to you.
This course is great. You guys have been so quick to respond to anything i have needed to know.
Finn and Trevor are amazing, Thank you all, I was so nervous prior to start but I'm enjoying everything.
Thanks again Rod.

Rodney Bonner

Thanks to you and everyone there, you have all been a great help and easy to deal with. Peter is an awesome examiner and knowledgeable fella and is a great asset!

Aiden Synnott

Thanks Mike for today, it was really good. You were very thorough and a great experience. My son Vinnie and I are ready to do lots of practice, safe driving and enjoying the water.

Danielle & Vinnie

I would like to thank sea school and especially Charles Baker and his team for their help in completing my coxswain course.
I highly recommend talking to Charles Baker for any sea training.

Dale Parker

It was a great experience doing my MAR20321 Certificate II in Maritime Operations (Coxswain Grade 1 NC) with Sea School. I have put out good words for you guys with my other friends and colleagues who are interested in doing marine quals.

Momin S

Looking forward to seeing you guys in the future for my MAR30921 Certificate III in Maritime Operations (Master <24m Near Coastal) qualification.

Gavin Romanis, Master<24

The Trainer, Nick Blacklaws is very knowledgeable and has an outstanding method of delivering maritime training.

Jamie Chetcuti, MED 2, Magnetic Island student

Great instructors that have good real world knowledge. I would highly recommend Sea School Marine Training to anyone that wants to start or further their career in the Maritime industry.

Jamie Griffin,Master <24

Just a brief note of appreciation for conducting such a great and fun boat licence course today. Freddy is totally excited about passing and getting his licence (and frankly so am I) and we're looking forward to doing more boating in the future. Thank you very much Stuart for looking after him today. It's much appreciated.


Just wanted to thank you and your staff at Sea School. I have over 20 years experience in the teaching profession and work closely with Macquarie Uni & UTS and I can certainly say that your methods of teaching were spot on. Big mention to Mark and Trevor, they were very thorough in their instruction and realistic about what is needed to operate on the ocean. The week was fantastic! I'll be seeing you soon for my next level

Craig Mitchell, Managing Director, Sydney Harbour Bookings

Sea School International provides the foundations to anyone wanting to take that first step into a marine career. I found the staff extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The training facility was exceptional; with the ability to have both theory and practical all within a day's learning. I would highly recommend Sea School International to both experienced and beginners.

Vanessa Pirotta, Coxswain Grade 1

I just wanted to thank you, and to pass on what a champ Ben was. He managed to make it interesting, doing a course like that with someone not into it would truly be a pain. Ben was the opposite, he should be given a sticker or a well done stamp or something.

Misha Hammond

Had a great time with Ben today and can't say enough good things about what a passionate boater he is. He is also a great ambassador for Sea School and I would thoroughly recommend you guys to anyone.

David Yuile

Just wanted to say how much I learned from, and enjoyed, the course with you last Monday – and both of us getting full marks tells its own story. Will be sending more family members/friends your way when the time is right.

Piers Tonge, Papuan Oil Search Ltd, Sydney

I just wanted to send a big thank you from Maddie and I regarding yesterday's course. We had such a great time and you are an amazing teacher! I'm sure we all wouldn’t have passed with flying colours if we hadn't had you guiding us. So, thanks again and I'll make sure I recommend you to everyone I know!

Shayne and Maddie
