About this course

This is a good foundation course for new or inexperienced skippers and crew or those who want to brush up on their skills, as it introduces navigation and safety awareness on board.

If you have an interest in sailing, motor boating, sea angling or diving, this course works well in complimenting the Powerboat Level 2, Helmsman courses, and Start Yachting on the water training.

It is a very informative course offering many opportunities for you to put your newly acquired knowledge into practice.

If you decide to take the course online, you will find many interactive exercises to help reinforce the information and lots of chances to try out your new skills.

Course Duration

In the classroom, here in Medemblik, a series of exercises will be taught over 16 hours.  It can be presented as a series of short sessions or over 2 full days.

Online, the course will take roughly 6 hours, but it’s appeal is that you work wherever, whenever and at the speed which suits you.
