Spirit of Christmas was set up in 2008 by MRS Training & Rescue’s Lead IQA Ronnie Munro and his wife Diane, to provide family Christmas parties for local socially and economically disadvantaged families. Wanting to give something back to their community from the outset, the couple contributed significantly to the parties. As the parties grew bigger and expanded, Ronnie and Diane couldn’t afford to fund them on their own, so they set up a small charity.

Great course and much more interesting, informative and hands-on than the initial course I sat with a different company 3 years ago. Archie was great! 👏

I recently undertook an STCW course at this training centre the only thing better than the content were the tutors. Everyone at MRS really wants to see you pass and to help you get the best out of yourself during the course. Not only did the swimming pool that the centre usually use cancel due to an accidental double booking but some equipment we were meant to be training with was stolen the morning of one of the exams. MRS staff dealt with this swiftly and effectively by changing the pool and going to buy new equipment on the same day it was stolen to ensure we as the students still got the most out of the course. The pace of content is rapid due to the condensed course but there seemed to always be space to ask questions and make sure each of us understood the principles we were being taught. I couldn't recommend anywhere else in the UK that I would have had as much fun learning.
