Let Datum Be Your Marine Guide

  • "With the unique needs of staging a training course in the remote community of Klemtu we were looking for a training provider who had flexibility and experience in teaching to students with a wide range of learning styles. Datum Marine Services and instructor Chris more than fits the bill on both counts. Chris was fantastic with younger students and was able to keep the older students engaged and motivated. Well done guys!"
