What's Involved?

This is an e-learning course, but an RYA instructor is on hand to provide as much support as you require, predominately via email, but we also offer Skype chats at pre-arranged times. 

 

The course is divided into various training modules:

  • Vessel - the compulsory carriage and maintenance of safety equipment and how to create and implement risk control and operating procedures. 
  • People - the importance of correct manning, keeping your skills up to date and the safe management of commercial vessels. 
  • Commercial environment - how you fit into the professional maritime world. 
  • Purpose - making sure your vessel is suitable and legal for the work you are carrying out, your obligations in protecting the environment, appropriate planning and situational awareness. 

Once you have completed all four modules, there is a 'mock' exam you can take, or you can head straight for the final online assessments.
