Im going to Rio this summer and then am going to look for jobs on the yachts afterwards. Do you mind me asking exactly where you did it in Rio? And was it in English?

You could save me some serious cash here!

Do some research and you'll surely get it cheaper somewhere else. In South Africa you'll even have some money left over to spend on safari holidays.

Maybe but i'm going to south america so the money i saved by doing it in South Africa would surely go on the flight...?

Its seems like every body trying to save money on courses and looking for the cheapest one instead of quality of the courses.

Most of the cheap one is not doing fire fighting practical. what's happening if there is really fire onboard. What do you do ??? Save money or save life ?  Pay for the right price to wellknown training centres. you will realize why you pay more as it worth it. Most of the experiences captains know how to choose good crews.
