    Can you do short courses in Plymouth?

    I could only find the undergraduate degrees on the website.

    Yes, you can. I have done the following short courses at Plymouth:

    Personal Survival Techniques
    Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting
    Elementary First Aid
    Personal Safety and Social Responsibility
    GMDSS GOC

    The only one that we actually have to travel some distance would be for Proficiency in fast rescue boats.

    Most of these are done through the university diving center and Camels head fire station.

        Not sure about that one, the tanker cadets were sent up to Glasgow for that - could have been to do with the company.

        Try calling up the University, maybe they will be able to help.

          That's done at Warsash I think?
          I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

            Cheers everyone - Did some more internet browsing and it turns out that Lowestoft College runs the most tanker courses in the summer. The main marine schools are all on summer holidays.

              The fire course at plmouth used to be amazing as it was done at HMS Raleigh. They since switched and now use camels head - great guys... But it seemed we did more practical fire fighting on our basic ff course at Raleigh than on the advanced course at camels.
