New to Marine Industry

Our recommendation is that you take STCW-10 Basic Safety training to learn skills such as basic firefighting and personal survival techniques to enable you to begin your career with knowledge about how to prevent accidents what to do in the case of an emergency. This course is usually required by yacht owners to be employed in any capacity onboard.

For Foriegn Flagged Vessels

For those interested in being able to captain foreign-flagged vessels up to 200GT, please read more about the Yachtmaster requirements. If you are an accomplished sailor and have captained vessels during several long and overnight passages then you may be a candidate for the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore Sail Certification Course.
