RYA has removed its recognition of Hot Liquid Southampton

by Louise Nicholls, RYA 2 Feb 2012 14:10 GMT

The RYA has today removed its recognition of Hot Liquid Southampton as a provider of RYA training courses. This means that Hot Liquid Southampton is now no longer able to offer or run RYA training courses.

The decision was made by the RYA following three serious safety related incidents involving Hot Liquid Southampton between January 2011 and January 2012.

RYA Training Manager and Chief Examiner Richard Falk said: "The removal of RYA recognition from a training centre is never a decision that is taken lightly. However, it is essential that customers are confident that appropriate safety management routines are in place at any centre displaying the RYA Recognised Training Centre logo."

The RYA advises that any customers booked on an RYA course at Hot Liquid Southampton should contact the school directly to discuss their situation. In the event that a customer has a further query they may contact the RYA at 02380 604100.

Hot Liquid Gibraltar will retain RYA recognition for all disciplines currently on offer due to the fact that the operational safety management routines of that site are controlled separately to that of the Southampton site.
