BOAT Program Course Reviews

"I have heard from most of our 20 participants, and they stated that this was some of the best training that they have ever had! Thank you again for the opportunity!" 
- Tim Dorsey, Sarasota County Fire Department

"I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know that ALL of my crew members had nothing but great things to say about your class, you, and all of your Assistant Instructor's. They all said that they came away with some new knowledge and it definitely enhanced their own personal confidence in the aggressive operation of our boats. Thank you for your knowledge and expertise and the ability to make the class an enjoyable & safe experience for all of them!!" 
Captain Saunders, Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point (MOTSU), North Carolina

"It was truly a pleasure taking the class with you all this week. How fortunate were we to get three firefighters to instruct our operator class…the humor, stories, and instruction were great! The professionalism and care you have for what you’re teaching is very evident. We learned quite a bit and I am confident we will transition into having a successful boat rescue team here on the north shore. I left class feeling invigorated not only for the future of this team but revitalized to serve and protect and that is because your passion is palpable. Stay safe in your endeavors and thanks again for an awesome week!"

"I just wanted to take the time to thank you and to compliment the three excellent instructors who recently delivered the NASBLA Fire Boat Small class here at Ocean Reef. The instructors all exhibited subject matter expertise, high-level instructional skill, and individually unique and valuable perspectives. I would recommend this course highly to other agencies, and we look forward to future opportunities to receive similar valuable training from NASBLA.
