We thoroughly enjoyed the Marine & Personal Watercraft License Course. Chris & Andrea were excellent & we learnt a lot in a short time. They are an affable, professional couple who are clearly passionate & knowledgeable about the subject matter & we highly recommend them.


Chris & Andrea were AMAZING, friendly, professional and incredibly welcoming. The course was delivered in a easy to follow and understanding way ensuring all ages and abilities could learn with visual presentation, demonstrations and learning material. They were incredibly accommodating, no issue was to big for them. They allowed my son to have his test read to him as he can’t read and did everything they could to ensure that everyone left with a smile and their certificate while maintaining everyone was competent to the vicroads required level. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.


Attended the course at Frankston with my son after having 2 in a row cancelled by another company. The administration team was very efficient and the course was interesting going well beyond the scope of the test material. Excellent to have an assistant to help my son with any difficult wording on the test.
