Great course content
“Great course content, well explained. Love the in person video along with the slides/animations ”
Elliot Dodson -Student
Great online course
“ Excellent service from an experienced team. Really enjoyable online course and friendly atmosphere. ”
Fantastic learning resource.
“ Having signed up to another well know sailing course provider the learning style didn’t suit me ( computer generated slides with no in person interaction). I came across Ardent and this was the experience I was looking for. Edd was extremely helpful setting me up with the day skipper course and the 1:1 pre-recorded videos are a fantastic learning tool that ensures the material is delivered at a level that ensures ease of learning. I couldn’t rate the experience highly enough. ”
Brilliant training providers
“Out of the training providers I had shortlisted to do the Day Skipper Theory with I am very glad I chose Ardent Training. Not only do they have the best mix of delivering the course through videos and being able to read what they are talking about (great for different learning styles) they are on hand ready to help you out via instant messaging, which they send you the transcript of later. They are great listeners, really supportive and happy to go through things with you. Couldn't recommend enough. ”
“Brilliant course, I doubt you’ll find anywhere better to achieve your day skipper theory. Any questions I had were answered quickly and effectively with brilliant feedback too. ”
