SRL Waypoint



We have successfully completed A CIDMO/SRL pilot training programme in partnership with Real Journeys, arguably one of New Zealand’s largest tourism and marine transport companies.  

This involved Coastguard Boating Education (CBE) developing a customised/bespoke training solution for Real Journeys. Real Journeys had been struggling to find training solutions that offered potential skippers a way to progress through CIDMO towards SRL in a cost effective and productive way, posing minimal disruption to their business whilst providing a career pathway for the employee.

We presented a programme that involved several week long intensive tutored classroom sessions – conducted in Milford Sound, Te Anau and Queenstown. These tutored sessions were interspersed with fully mentored distance learning and completion of the TRB under the guidance of the Real Journeys Chief Launch master and existing vessel skippers.  This training partnership proudly earned Real Journeys the “Supreme Winner” at the 2017 Diversity Awards.

The programme was concluded in May, with all four candidates successfully achieving their CIDMO qualification,  SRL certificate of Competency and passenger endorsement to Master vessels with greater than 19 passengers aboard. Following is some of the feedback received from Real Journeys management:


This is a proud achievement and demonstrates our ability to meet and address industry needs in the commercial maritime space.
