We have nothing to hide and provided a very
comprehensive free trial to give you a real feel for the course so you know exactly what you are
getting right from the start.
We have added optional voiceover to all
important lessons which, unlike the more common video and slide show format
courses, gives you the option to read and watch, listen and watch or all three.
Voice overs are good but become irritating when you have to listen to them
over and over so we have designed our lessons as animated diagrams with the
option to read and listen, just read, or just listen.
Advantage? You do not need to listen to the voiceover a second or third

What can i say.....this course is amazing and the help and support you
get is better than anything. Click to hide.
Let me explain - i originally did the Essential Seamanship and navigation
with another online company, mention no names, but there was no support, not
even a well done at the end. They forgot to send my certificate which i had
to chase and then forgot to mention that i could have saved some money as
the syllabus for that is covered on the day skippers course.
Then i happened across Georgina from Navathome who set me straight and
booked me on the day skippers with a discount as i had already completed
part of the course work.
The support i got from Georgina was amazing, prompt replies that always
answered my questions. The actual course is well set out, explained with
excellent animations. I really liked the self test quizzes to check my
progress and the fact that Georgina was checking up on my results was
reassuring that i was on the right track.
The assessment terrified me but to my surprise i got a lot of feed back from
Georgina as i was working my way through it telling me how i was getting
on.....all i can say it was like a little guardian angle on my shoulder. The
best thing of all was that i passed, with a lot of help and support.
I have done a lot of online courses for work, from major companies pumping
out training packages that just did not work, how ever this one did and then
some and i can say without any doubt it is the best one i have done and will
continue my studies with Georgina and the team at Navathome.
Thank you again so pleased and will see you on the Yacht master theory.....
