"I cannot stop telling everyone I meet about my incredible experience at Compass Courses. The facility is incredible, the instructors care and have a way of teaching that allows you to enjoy your experience while gaining your rating. I attended for the BST class, but I am considering becoming a captain...just so I can keep visiting all of my friends at Compass Courses."
