More IS Really Better!

More really is better

More students makes for a more successful class!

I was concerned about student success when going from a small 6-student classroom to the larger 12-student classroom. What I have learned is that MORE REALLY IS BETTER! The secrete to a successful class is getting students to ask questions. From my perspective, if no one asks questions then everyone is getting it and we move on. I get four times the amount of questions with 12 students than I did with 6; and the result is that fewer students fail the exams. Come in and join the fun; Get Your Captain License with our proven course. OUPV in eight consecutive days, Master 100 ton in ten, Master 200 in fourteen, and Master of Fishing or Apprentice Mate (Steersman) in sixteen. Classes start every two weeks.
