The RYA (Royal Yachting Association) is the British national body for water-sports training and strives for a high professional standard in the RYA courses. Safe Haven Training undergoes yearly inspections by an RYA inspector which safeguards that material, procedures and courses complies with the high RYA standards. It is the most international recognised institute for water sport training.

Safe Haven Training uses professional equipment for all courses provided. Safe Haven Training strives for the best possible equipment, not to comply with just the minimum required. Safety & Quality are first, no concessions are made and these matters. We use a lot of equipment were possible (Marine VHF, EPIRB, SART, PLB, AIS MOB, GMDSS portofoons, antennas, brandcards, smoke escape masks, First Aid equipment, medical oxygen equipment, advanced CPR mannequins, MOB mannaquin etc), this to provide an experience which is as close to reality. You learn and remember better seeing and touching and where possible using the equipment.
