I did the Food Safety Level 2 course with instructor Mark, and had a great experience! Mark kept us entertained the whole day with his enthusiasm, style of teaching and ability to convey important information in a way that really highlighted the main takeaway of the course! He has a genuine passion for teaching and helping his students along their way into yachting with real-world advice and examples relevant to the course information.
“Thoroughly enjoyed the course! Amazing course instructor! Would highly recommend and would happily undertake any future courses with Alan!”
“Mark was AMAZING – he was energetic, knowledgeable, had information pouring out his mouth and was super helpful with any questions we had. He clearly explained everything, and I wish he could teach me every day. Very good course!!!”
" I realised how important it is for every yacht chef to do their ship's cook assessment as I almost lost an amazing job opportunity due to not having my certificate. Thankfully Oceanwave managed to fit me in very last minute but only because they had a cancellation BUT this left me very unprepared. They helped me through the whole process and pushed and guided me through when I was so nervous. I can highly recommend all you yacht chefs to book your ship's cook assessment at ocean wave ASAP so you don’t have to loose any amazing opportunities. Thank you so much Claire and Mark, I wouldn’t have wanted to do my assessment anywhere else but with you guys."
“Mark is a very nice and professional teacher, with awesome humour. He made the course funny, dynamic and enjoyable. He understands yachting and crew life, it was very easy for me to empathise and do the course. I would recommend Mr. Cox to my crew without hesitation.”
“Excellent course. Mark did an excellent job running the course, it was timely, enthusiastic and made interesting! Course material covered many topics and hands-on examples. Kept the classes attention and participation. Would happily recommend Ocean Wave Monaco to others in the future!”
