Course sizes are determined by an ISA student to instructor ratio of 6:1
As well as that, CBC prefers to keep a 'Quality of Course' rather than a 'quantity of student'.

The first six places are available, by way of our in-house Senior Instructor.
The second six places are available by way of a second, hired-in, instructor for that week, if available.
The third six places, the max at the moment determined by our training fleet, is available on demand (only if instructor available).

These ratios are based on entry level students (level 1 or 2). For level 3 type students we can enlarge the course size.

This Booking's Reference Chart was last updated 5th August 2013.
Red: means space has been booked and deposit received. Yellow: means booked pending receipt of deposit.
Green: means spaces available.
