2016 sees a new era for John Percival Marine Associates, as several Deck and Engineering Instructors have joined our expanding team. Following on from the recent retirement of 2 long serving instructors, Captains Bill Marr and Keith Cederholm, our new additions bring a wealth of fresh knowledge and experience to the classrooms.

In particular, two of the new additions have a comprehensive understanding of the needs of our yacht students - one of whom has 12 years experience working on superyachts, and holds his OOW (Yachts) <3000gt CoC. The other is currently a rotational yacht Engineer, holding a Y2 CoC.

Each instructor has completed a thorough training programme, bringing them up to date with new regulations and introducing them to our unique and effective teaching styles.

JPMA is set to continue growing, as we are always developing our current list of RYA and MCA courses, which are taught here weekly. We are extremely lucky to have a dynamic team of instructors and office staff who are dedicated to giving students the tools required in order to pass their exams and build their confidence in becoming more able seafarers.
