"'Just spent the day with HOTA, revalidating my Offshore Personal Survival for my IYT Instructor Renewal. The Staff and Instructors were all top notch and very nice, super facility for all types of Offshore Training Commercial and Recreational use. Morning classroom work and afternoon kitted out in full survival suit getting wet in their pool with 20-man lift raft doing drills and skills. Good fun, had a blast and met some very nice people doing the course'"

You could tell that Phil knew his stuff and when he associated his real life experience/encounters with the training objective the message really hit home. Please thank Phil for me for his professionalism, passion and enthusiasm during the course.(Fire Extinguisher Course 25th January 2018)"
