Course Options

I just want you to know that I found yesterday's Boatmaster assessment to be a great learning experience. Your positive feedback and wonderfully detailed explanations opened my eyes to so many aspects of the study material, but more it brought to life what has been up to now a largely academic exercise. I am in awe of your knowledge of the subject matter.

Online Study

Online and Home study boating courses offer many benefits for those seeking boating education. Firstly, these courses are designed to be studied either online or with a home study booklet so they have great content and illustrations, are interactive and are easy to navigate. You can also study at your own pace giving the flexibility to schedule learning around busy lifestyles and commitments. You can also complete the course in blocks and can come back to it on a weekly basis until it is completed.

Classroom Study

Classroom courses offer the student the ability to study intensely over a finite period of time (usually a weekend) to complete a boating course. It is a chance to meet up with other like-minded boaties and learn from their experiences. Having an educated teacher with years of boating knowledge enables the student to be taught face-to-face and ask any questions that may come up.
