Not only is Bob a BSS registered examiner, he is also a fully qualified electrician and also has 20 years experience as a gas fitter working on both domestic and marine installation. In addition to this, Bob is trained in both risk identification and risk management.

Boating experience

Having lived on a boat, Bob’s personal experience of boat life has made his approach to boat safety customer focused with the concept of working together with owners its prime focus to maintain their own and safety of others.
