Seavoice Training – Providing RYA Training Courses to the Northwest of England for Over a Decade

If you are looking to be trained in the art of seamanship, it is essential to be taught by a knowledgeable and experienced tutor. Even more important is to have someone who has a high level of empathy and excellent communication skills. That’s a description that befits a family run company, Seavoice Training who have been running a range of RYA courses for over a decade using exclusively Icom marine radio equipment.

Seavoice Training has been in business since 2006. Its founder, Paul Harrison, started the company to initially train boatowners on how to use a marine radio correctly. Paul has a significant background as a Coastguard officer for 15 years at the Coastguard centre at Hall Road West, Crosby, Liverpool. He noticed many radio users were very nervous about speaking to the Coastguard and knew that he could instruct them with the correct procedures and the proper radio protocol.

Paul’s background in the marine industry is very extensive. Initially he was involved in inshore fishing with his late father who was a local Shrimp Fisherman. Paul said, ‘he always instilled in me the safety side of going out to sea and to always make someone ashore know of your intentions and when you expect to return to shore. That’s why Seavoice Trainings tag line is “Your Safety At Sea Is Always our Highest Priority”.’

Seavoice Training provides training courses across the North West of England. As well as local seafarers, the company have instructed lifeboat crews, commercial fishermen, sailing clubs, and staff from the Canal and River trust to name just a few. They run the following RYA Training courses:

• RYA Short Range Certificate course – Online / Classroom
• RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship – Online / Classroom
• RYA First Aid
• RYA CEVNI Test – Online

The company also sells Lifejackets and marine safety products as well as Icom marine radios. Paul said, ‘We only use Icom Marine radio nowadays as we found other training sets from other companies could be hard to use or the screen was too small to see the controls.

‘We use the most up to date Icom Marine radio training sets with both fixed and handheld DSC portable sets in the classroom. The Icom Marine VHF Radios we use work well as the user interface is so easy to use, and in a very short time, the student can learn to operate the radio.

Paul added, ‘You need a Marine VHF Radio that won’t let you down, the Marine environment can be a harsh place so having a Marine Radio you can depend on is always key Icom marine radios are always the radio we recommend.’

As to the future? Paul said, ‘I see the future for Seavoice Training as the one stop shop for Marine VHF Radio training either classroom-based or via distance learning (Online)’
