I recently took the RYA LEVEL 2 POWERBOAT TRAINING here at the RIB School was so happy and impressed!
Their boating knowledge and experience was top and their patience and explanatory teaching style was awesome! Consequently, as an absolute beginner in the boating area, I was able to walk away with great skills and know-how on how to handle a powerboat. Classes were small, maximum 3 students on a boat, and hence the training was very tailor-made and personal ... Katinka even consciously prepared for my plant-based eating habit!
If I had three hands, I'd give them 3 THUMBS UP!

Strengths

Patience, experience and knowledge

Katinka and Bernard are amazing trainers. Experienced, patient and very sensitive both to the learning process and to the condition of each student. The skill of teaching is not only to show and teach various techniques of boat dirivng, but also to take into account all individual characteristics of a student (character, peculiarity of information perception, etc.) so they can soak up all the information smoothly, gradualy with a feeling of comfort and without any sort of pressure. I'm grateful to the RIB School Scheveningen for a very wide and at the same time deep range of skills that I learnt. Now I know my strengths and weaknesses that I will work on. And I even know where - of course, at Scheveningen :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart and, of course, I don’t say goodbye :)

Individual approach, taking care of a student’s physical and moral condition, patient repetition of the material in case of any misunderstanding, equal distribution of driving training time between students, no pressure on the student, analysis of the pros and cons of a student's driving skills without reproaches

I would recommend to extend the course RIB powerboat level 2 for 1 day more, so a student can have more time to retain all the given information (both teoretical and practical) better. But 2 days long course is also seem optimal expecially for those who manage to soak up the infromation faster.

I loved everything about the school in Scheveningen. The teachers were very experienced and taught us a lot. What I loved about it,- was that most of the schooling took place outside on the water. You get to repeat a lot of the training at sea which is good for your own knowledge and growth! Both teachers love their job and pass on their experience to each student! Everything was well planned and organised, even the lunch breaks and the selection of food and drinks were full to my satisfaction. We had an amazing group of people of which some of them have become good internet friends. The only sad thing was that it was over so quickly! I had a great time and I thank everyone. I can only recommend this school and teachers to everyone out there trying to optain a license in the according categories. Regards to all and much success!

Strengths

Getting a feel for eventual situations at Sea with nature's elements and depending on your own instincts, learned instructions and observations.

Everything was to my liking! I especially want to reach out to Mrs. Kalinka,- she is the heart and soul of RIB and has my full admiration. She leads by example and is by far the most experienced teacher when it comes to knowledge about the Ocean, nautic and human behaviour at Sea! She truely deserves a medal of recognition! Thank you Kalinka 🙏 I want to be like you when I grow up! 😊

Without knowing RIB School, I booked 2 courses (RYA PWC and RYA PB Level 2) with them. The reason I choose for the RIB School is the good and compleet information on their website, and the fast and friendly replies on my emails. Michael and Katinka are both super friendly and professional. No matter what level you have they will do everything to help you so you can finish the course with a positive feeling. I had a great 3 days and learned a lot and I will never forget "Slow is pro, First steer then gear" :-) .

Strengths

highly qualified staff, who knows how to teach others. Good location with several possibilities to train.

Advice for improvement

this is just a personal remark: I would have enjoyed a little bit more sea time during the PB course. But I understand that this has to fit into the planning and the course.
