NIC has helped me achieve my goals by helping me develop a range of skills. I was inspired by all of my instructors and I own and live on a sailboat which I learned to operate at NIC.

My favourite thing about studying at NIC was the beautiful environment it's set in. The Comox Valley not only affords a beautiful coast for kayaking and sailing, but also endless trails for hiking and biking on weekends, a ski resort, a lake and a river right at our doorstep.
