Course Aim

This course is aimed at those wishing to go onto complete the Coastal Skipper and Yachtmaster practical courses and exams aswell as the recreational boaters wishing to widen their knowledge base. By the end of the course you should be equipped with the knowledge to navigate a  sailing yacht or powered craft in unfamiliar coastal and offshore waters during the day and night.

Commercial Endorsements & Yachtmaster Exam Invigilation:

You do not necessarily need your Yachtmaster Theory online course assessment invigilated.. have a read through the below as this may answer the question as to whether you do or not.. 

What is assessment invigilation and who can conduct it?

In some cases, it is necessary to arrange for an RYA Instructor to be present throughout the assessment to verify that you haven't received any outside assistance. This may be an RYA Instructor of any level.

When is invigilation required, do I really need it?

In most cases, invigilation of the final theory assessment is not necessary and is completely optional. We have summarised this for you below:

Invigilation is not required:

  • If you are going to be using the qualification for leisure purposes (flotilla, charter, own boat cruising etc).
  • If you wish to qualify as a RYA Cruising Instructor or an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor.
  • For Skippering vessels below 200GT
  • If you are wishing to add a Commercial Endorsement to a RYA Yachtmaster Coastal or an RYA Yachtmaste Offshore Certificate of Competence.

Invigilation will be required:

  • If you wish to enter MCA large yacht qualifications such as Officer of the Watch or Master 3000 all of your theory assessments must be invigilated 
  • If you intend to Skipper vessels of over 200GT 
  • If you intend to use your RYA Day Skipper Certificate or Competence for commercial purposes such as sea angling or commercial dive-boat operations within the UK you will require a professional endorsement to a Day Skipper Certificate of Competence. This will enable you to skipper a small commercial vessel. If your Day Skipper shorebased exam is invigilated by an RYA Instructor you will be able to operate up to 12 mile limit from the vessel's home port. If your theory exam has not been invigilated, operation will be authorised for a 3 mile limit from the vessel's home port. 

How can invigilation be arranged?

You may choose to make your own arrangements independently, please note: the chosen RYA recognised Training Centre may wish to charge a fee to cover their instructor time.
