Having previously gained this certificate via another provider I was surprised at the fact I learned quite a lot from Mark in the opening hour. So at the end of the day I had taken away a lot of new and valuable information. Marks background speaks for itself and you know you are being taught by someone of the highest calibre. Great course, highly recommended.

I thoroughly enjoyed undertaking this bespoke weapons course with Mark, his knowledge and instructional ability surpassed my expectations, which gave me reassurance on the quality of training I was provided with. I am very happy in knowing that I have acquired new skills, which will aid me in my profession. I have already recommended Mark to work colleagues and look forward to completing another package with him in the future.

This course is ideal for those transitioning from the military into the civilian security industry. Weapon instruction on commonly encountered systems (M-16, AK47, G3, Sig and Glock) is second to none and instructor knowledge is absolutely first rate. The range phase is both challenging and enjoyable with plenty of scope for learning and for improving current skills.

Just completed the 'firearms competency course' in order to gain the necessary qualifications to work within the maritime industry. I can honestly say I learnt more today with various weapon systems than I did the 8 years I was in the corps And would feel fully competent in using any of the weapons if I was to come across them on any vessel. in my opinion this was solely down to the methodical approach the instructor (Nobby) taught us, his years of experience and vast knowledge of the weapon systems and the industry was hugely beneficial and would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to work within the maritime industry.

Mark Knowles, is very enthusiastic and with his background a very professional instructor. Covering a wide variety of weapon systems and getting to fire majority of them down the range. Showing us every component and stripping the weapon down for daily cleaning he covers everything and more to make sure you're confident. Power point is kept to a minimum, giving the students plenty of time for hands on. Mark covers everything, including personal experience and knowledge on the industry, every question answered. Lunch, refreshments and plenty of brews. A DVD also handed out at the end of the course to help familiarize yourself prior to any deployment. Top bloke, many thanks.

This was the 3rd course I have done with STS which says everything really, again excellent tuition both practical and theory. Nobby is just a fountain of knowledge when it comes to weapons and the maritime industry, some of it a bit scary at times especially some of the horror stories that he's heard over the years. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone looking to refresh their original course, however if your original course was with one of the many tin pot companies out there you might be in for a shock, it is quite intensive at times and at a fast pace but with the excellent tuition I'm sure you will be fine.
