Not necessarily, because of the educator ratio we will be able to tailor the course to varying skill levels. On the first day we will run through all the tools required and there will be plenty of opportunity to go through and learn/practise all the welding knowledge before tackling the build of the boat.

Towards the end of the course there will be time to go over aspects that you feel you didn’t quite grasp and reaffirm those skills.

What do I need to bring to course
  • Wear appropriate safety clothing.
    Closed-toe leather work boots or work boots
