first time).

The cost of the course is £200 (200GBP) payable after the course (10%

cancellation fee.  The course is limited to small numbers; each delegate
gets individual feedback on their exercises and the exam.  On successful
completion of the course (including the exercises and exam) you will
receive JNCC-recognised certification, which is required for work as an MMO
or PAM operator in UK waters.
