If you find that your time is constrained and you'd rather study at your own time before you get here, then we have the perfect solution for you:


We are now collaborating with Skippers Online, who are a recognised RYA Training Centre specialising in online training. 

Courses provided by Skippers Online will:

  • Give you realistic 3D graphics and videos to illustrate scenarios exactly as they might appear from onboard your vessel. This is particularly valuable when teaching The Collision Regulations, Buoyage and Pilotage. 

  • Provide straightforward, narrated and animated, step-by-step instructions, incorporating regular quizzes and exercises, teach navigation, meteorology, the collision regulations, buoyage and safety at your own pace.

  • Prepare you carefully for the final exams, which are taken online after you've attempted mock papers. If you don't quite make the grade we provide detailed personal feedback, suggest relevant additional study and allow unlimited resits.

  • Offer a 14-day money back guarantee, because we know that choosing whether to study in a conventional classroom environment or online is a big decision and want all our students to be 100% satisfied with their choice.

  • Employ the same state-of-the art technology chosen by major corporations such as IBM, Microsoft and Sony to deliver online training to their employees. Our lessons run on Windows PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones and Android devices.If you don't always have access to an Internet connection, you can view lessons offline on an iOS or Android device.
