MCA Compliant Master Of Yachts Courses

These Courses Are Not For Beginners

Although there is no prerequisite for formal training, candidates are expected to have acquired a degree of experiential learning during their qualifying experience; passive “passengers” on board a vessel cannot expect to qualify.

In Addition, Candidates Must:

  • Be over the age of 18
  • Have logged the qualifying experience relevant to the particular certificate
  • Hold valid STCW Certificates for the five elements of Basic Safety Training:
    • Elementary First Aid
    • Personal Survival Techniques
    • Basic Fire Fighting
    • Personal Safety and Social Responsibilities
    • Compliance in Security Awareness
  • Hold a VHF Radio Certificate/License
  • Hold a current seafarers medical certificate (ENG 1 or equivalent)
  • Successfully complete the course which includes both theory and practical examinations.

The courses may be taken before the above requirements are met, but full compliance is required before Certificates of Competency will be issued.
