We’re getting there…..

Creating a new website is easy, creating a new website with loads of new content takes a huge investment of time and effort – and we’re almost there. We’ve chosen to go live with this site without all of the courses populated with the text we want as we figure its best to get it up and running rather than delaying a week or two. The courses (like this one) that are not complete will be fully live within the next week.

In the ‘Book now’ section any course dates presented are accurate so please do feel free to book a course even if the text isn’t quite there.

To discuss the course please contact Viv via office@powerboattraininguk.co.uk or on 01202 686666
