Covid 19

Dear Customer
You will all be aware that Covid 19 is a 1918 Spanish Flu like epidemic. It can be fatal to all age groups if caught. It is transmitted by coughing or sneezing and is particularly dangerous to those over 60 and those people with underlying health conditions.
We are constantly listening carefully to the latest Government advice regarding this viral outbreak. This states that it is particularly important, that anyone showing symptoms of fever or a constant dry cough, no matter how mild, should self-isolate (including family – if any) for 7 days and refrain from social or official contact. This includes not attending any courses booked with us or any other external activity involving proximity to other people. Additionally, and in any case, close social contact, which many of our course require, is advised against.
Our duty at Western Maritime Training Ltd is to ensure that you (or your employees) and our staff attend training events that are as safe as possible within the latest official guideline’s enforcements to date.
Accordingly, and in order that we all remain as safe as possible, we are mothballing our services until Government advice changes. Covid 19 is such a generic threat to the population that running face to face training is not an acceptable risk. Colleges and Universities are taking similar action.
With immediate effect our payment portals are now closed, and no further bookings will be taken. Customers already booked to courses will be offered alternative dates as soon as the situation becomes clearer. We will still be able to offer career and qualifications advice over the telephone. Please be aware that this may be limited access to this facility at times. You will be able to leave telephone messages if we are unable to talk to you immediately.
We regret having to take this action, we have operated under the same ownership and management for 24 years continuously, providing first class and value-for-money training and education. However, the safety of you and us and all our loved ones is paramount.
We look forward to being of service to you again soon.
