I enjoyed the course very much, Sjoerd and Brian were very professional. The location of the class and the hotel were optimal, with a good connection to Amsterdam.
Most importantly for me, was the overview of the typical technology implemented on yachts. So I now have a good starting point, from which to build up my knowledge further.
Also, it was good to have a small group of participants for better interaction. This included discussing common problems with seasoned crew.
Recently I attended the Yacht Entertainment Systems course run by JustETOs. This was whilst employed in the Royal Navy. It was part of my resettlement, in anticipation of a career in the yacht industry.
I found this a well presented course, with all expectations met. In particular, it gave me an insight into the complex AV systems on-board a yacht. Overall, I now feel more confident in ensuring continuity of on-board services.
The course was a good mixture of theory and practical. Also, the lecturers’ knowledge was exceptional. Plus, they were very patient and helpful. The class were asking good questions of real life issues. These were answered in detail, based on the lecturers’ current expertise. Furthermore, the provided lunch and refreshments were very nice. I also enjoyed meeting and conversing with others on the course.
Finally, the location of the course, hotel and provided transport worked out very well. I was glad I joined the course and would recommend it to others.
