We have a new Marine Awareness Course on offer and the first one takes place on the 11th and 12th of September at the Treetops Hotel in Aberdeen.

Further details are available on our website under the Training Courses section and bookings should be made directly with RGIT on 0845 606 2909 or by sending an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
