WHY USE CHIEFTAIN TRAINING FOR THE YACHT RIGGING & ROPE SPLICING COURSE?
Nearly 20 year ago our Principal dreamed up the 1-day “Yacht Rigging Course”, over the years it developed and ten years ago changed name to “Yacht Rigging & Rope Splicing.” In recent times our competitors have looked at our website and pinched both our course title and our advertised course syllabus. Of course it takes more than a cut and paste to match our product, while they try to emulate what we were doing last year we continue to improve the product and set the gold standard.
