I would use VTC for any online training in the future. In this changing world and where online training is seen more and more I believe VTC is ahead of the game.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Jana B.

I would like to thank the whole Virtual Training Centre team for creating such an amazing online course. I didn't know what to expect, but after going through the whole course, I would highly recommend it to every seafarer. The course is well structured and provides time & pace flexibility and comfort which I really appreciate. I am amazed at the extent of the information I have gained and I highly doubt I would get the knowledge in such a scale by doing any other classroom PDSD course. I am fascinated by all the additional literature in PDF format, links, and videos. Thanks to them I can revert to this interesting and for all mariner’s necessary topic anytime and study it in even more detail. Thank you.

PSA Testimonial Reference by: Terence K.

In light of the security threats posed by terrorists, hijackers and smugglers, this course is very useful in mitigating the threats posed. I truly recommend it.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Maia L-S.

The course itself is cleverly constructed to go over important points more than once. The customer service I received was instant and helpful. Most importantly, I don’t feel like I just got the certificate, I feel that I have a good understanding of all subjects covered by this course. I will recommend it to all my colleagues.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Kyle V.

This has been referred to me by everyone I know and I shall refer it to anyone I know or come across.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Willem B.

I would have done this course long ago if I knew how helpful it would be. I have been a professional yachtsman for 5 years with only a PST. It seems like this course is far underrated and under-marketed. I would make sure that I do more of these courses which are similarly helpful in the future.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Sigrid S.

I was unsure of making the decision to do this course online instead of in an actual classroom, turns out I do not regret my final decision as this course succeeded my expectations. I also made a minor mistake when I purchased the course, but after contacting them through email asking if it was possible for them to help me; they had it fixed in 10 minutes! I only have good words to say about this whole experience with Virtual Training Centre.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Elliott P.

This was a great course! Due to my circumstance and COVID-19, this way of conducting the course was perfect. The course itself was well set out and the methods of learning, videos and examples etc. was great. Highly recommend the course to anyone considering it.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Jessica H.

I found the course really clear and easy to follow. The use of buttons, images and videos really breaks up the large amount of information they provide. The interface is simple to use and the whole process was really straightforward.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Erin T.

This is my second time completing a course by Virtual Training Centre, and I have had a great experience once again! The course outline and setup is amazing, informative and easy to comprehend. I would highly recommend Virtual Training Centre!

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Bride P.

This was a professional and very well developed course! I’m full of new knowledge and feel the examples were useful to learn more. Plenty of information and easy to use online material – well done! Thank you for a great course!

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Harry M.

Really a fantastic course. Very interactive and easy to get along with.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Mark V. K.

How do you make a course like the PDSD tolerable let alone interesting? It’s very difficult! Virtual Training Centre have given it a good shot. The course is well laid out and easy to follow, and if you make a mistake, then go back and try it again, it’s the best way to learn. When I called them to clarify some points that I had, they were clear, helpful and polite. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again if I needed to.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Gabriela B.

I would recommend this course to anyone needing a deeper understanding of security awareness. It is thorough and provides great films to watch if you need deeper understanding of the material. The links to websites with extra information are very helpful and will also be handy in instances where clarification and on hand references are needed.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Andra I. P.

Many, many thanks for sending me the Certificate in such a short time, I am very grateful. I did enjoy the training (content and display), I am happy with the knowledge I gained but most of all I appreciate the Excellent Customer Care. It is so reassuring to know that you can be assisted so quickly when needed, to be acknowledged when sending an email. I will gladly recommend the platform when the opportunity arises. A huge 'Thank you'.

Organized, very easy to see through the lessons, very well explained, useful PDF information provided and professionally designed time wise for crew who might take this course throughout busy season. Thank you for providing a stress free online course and an enjoyable experience.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: David T.

This is a truly excellent course that contains very in depth information. Do not gloss over the material, take copious notes, and enjoy the learning experience.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Meg B.

I would recommend this course for people looking to do PDSD if you are unable to take it at a training centre in person. It is helpful that you can do it in your own time and over as many days as you need. I would like to thank Cathy at Virtual Training Centre who extremely helpful and quick to answer any questions you have or help with any problems.

PDSD Testimonial Reference by: Chelsey E.

SSO Testimonial Reference by: Hamish B.

Very good course. Very thorough and really expanded my knowledge. Extremely helpful to have this course online. Thank you.

SSO Testimonial Reference by: Paul T.

Brilliant course and structure with variations in learning material. The combination of videos and running assessments through each module help to keep the focus and information retention. Will thoroughly recommend this course to other crew in the future.

SSO Testimonial Reference by: Gary H.

I was originally booked in to complete the Proficiency as a Ship Security Officer course, with a different provider, in a class based environment. Due to the Covid 19 Lock Down the original course was cancelled and I found the Virtual Training Centre Online. The International Cruise Company I work for confirmed that Virtual Training met all the requirements to provide this course to MCA Standards. I found this course to be extremely easy to work through, with well set out objectives and knowledge modules. Exams are completed at the end of each learning module with questions relating to that module. This makes the whole learning and testing process very effective. In addition at the end of each objective there is additional reference material simply set out and easy to find in a reference slide. Throughout the process the team at VTC have been available and they have quickly responded to any questions. Overall I have found the course provided to be excellent and I would fully recommend it.

SSO Testimonial Reference by: Peter H.

Excellent course. The software worked really well with no technical issues at all. The ability to stop/start the course made it very manageable to complete the course without stress or urgency. Taking away travel time and accommodation costs of having to go to a college made the experience even more worthwhile.

SSO Testimonial Reference by: Duncan M.

The VTC ISPS SSO is a thorough and comprehensive online course which fits the requirements of MCA training. I was surprised by the depth and clarity of the content within the course. It has opened my eyes to the possibilities of online course programmes.

SSO Testimonial Reference by: Sarra H-W.

Thank you very much for the opportunity to take this course online during lock down. It was well presented and I enjoyed the experience as well as learning a lot. I heartily recommend it and have in fact already done so on the yachting websites.

SSO Testimonial Reference by: Mike S.

This course was fantastically laid out with great resources on a super platform. It was easy to navigate, understand and learn and would use this company again for other short courses.

SSO Testimonial Reference by: Moctar F.

I couldn’t ask for more about this course. It provided me with the right knowledge. I am now more than confident to perform my duty as a security officer.

SSO Testimonial Reference by: Fraser R.

The online SSO course is a brilliant way to gain your SSO cert. I didn’t have to travel away from my home on my leave and sit listening to a man with a PowerPoint clicker for the best part of a week. You can do it at your own pace, at your own desk with a nice cup of tea in between modules. The video sections and reading material are very specific. The download links and hyperlink “keep for reference” reminders, I am sure will come in handy in the future.

Crowd Management Testimonial Reference by: Mladen J.

This course is very well studied and organized so you can take all the time you have to complete. Once you start the course and you have to pause for some reason, you can easily continue later and the course will start where you stopped earlier. All the info in the course are well presented and not difficult to understand. I wish there were more courses like this one. Thank you

Crowd Management Testimonial Reference by: Hamish B.

Really helpful course, filling in a few gaps in my knowledge. I hope to be able to put into practice, some of the ideas and techniques I have learnt in this course. Thanks!

Crowd Management Testimonial Reference by: Ben D.

A very detailed and well-presented course, covering all content in a clear and direct way with an understandable passage of information. The course is laid out in a way you can follow and inform you when you should take a break. Well done Virtual Training Center.

Crowd Management Testimonial Reference by: Andre D.

The course was very informative and fulfilled all my expectations.

Crowd Management Testimonial Reference by: Harrison C.

This is an extremely well presented course, and I know that I am more confident coming out of it.

Crowd Management Testimonial Reference by: Kadeem B.

This course has without a doubt exceeded my expectations. What I liked most is the way in which it provided concise information within each course segment that is clear and easy to understand. Its user friendly interface supported ease of navigation and in my opinion encouraged an overall pleasant experience. I see no issue in recommending this course as I am confident that anyone taking it will be truly satisfied.

Crowd Management Testimonial Reference by: Ross D-H.

MUCH better than a physical class. Allowing those with higher levels and experience to concentrate on the topics they know a little less about.
