Very interesting new learning for me as I will work on a cruise ship as a Executive Chef in south America and Europe. I will recommend to my colleague who need the stwc courses as they are very clear and informative! Very satisfying courses!

Uitstekende service en buitengewoon 'ontzorgend'. Menig zeeman weet hoe moeilijk het kan zijn zaken te doen met het KiWa, een instantie die niet bepaald bekend staat om hun vlotte dienstverlening. Met Rood Boven Groen sta je al aan het begin van je aanvraag 1-0 voor wat een hoop zorgen scheelt. Communicatie verloopt vlot en duidelijk en de tarieven voor het faciliteren van een aanvraag zijn het naar mijn idee meer dan waard.
