I wanted to thank you very much for the course, facilities and front office support that you provide in order to train people for and in the industry, as it is truly amazing. Better than the course and facilities are the teachers and the hands on wealth of experience that is brought to every session.

Thank you for your patience and support in areas where I needed additional help. After leaving my job after I have had 27 years of financial security, it has been a big step for me to follow my dreams and attending Sea School has provided a great foundation as I take this leap of faith.

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

Jamie Chetcuti, MED 2, 2019 Magnetic Island student

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

It’s been a while (like one year) since I attended Sea School at Tweed with Michael and Trevor in Feb 2017. I sat my oral assessment last week and was successful - Coxswain Grade 1.

A big thank you to Sea School for all your help and assistance. It was by far the best training course I have ever attended.

Adam Vidler, Project Manager, H-E Parts International

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.

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

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
