This is an Online course. Once booked you will be sent a log in and password for the RYA Interactive site. Once logged on for the first time you will be asked for some information and to change your password. Once you have completed the course you can print your pass certificate ready to send with your commercial endorsement.
After completing the course, you have the opportunity to practice with three mock assessments before opening the final graded online assessment. We estimate users will take around 6-8 hours to work through the four course modules. The graded assessment is split into two sections, each with a maximum time limit of 1 hour.
In the commercial world you are a professional seafarer, whatever your job is on board,. As such, you are no different from the captain of a cruise liner; you have a duty of care to crew, to passengers, and to other water users, and you will be held to account if things go wrong. The RYA PPR (Professional Practices & Responsibilities) course will introduce you to these responsibilities and from April 2012 is required in order to endorse commercially your RYA/MCA Certificate of Competence.
Nothing needed. This is a “Home Study” course.
An excellent outfit, well equipped with good boats and brilliant instructors, that is small enough to give a warm personal service but big enough to cope with the full gamut of yachting experiences.
A group of four of us booked our day skipper practical and theory through First Class Sailing. From the start to finish, they were friendly and professional, making the whole process a very enjoyable experience. Our instructor Graham, was excellent, he made us feel at ease from the moment we arrived at the boat for our first weekend and had a fantastic teaching style; we learnt so much whilst having great fun at the same time. The food supplied was good, boat was new, clean and in good condition. Would certainly use First Class again for any future courses and would recommend without hesitation.
First Class Sailing should be your only choice for embarking on any theoretical or practical learning experience you may require. Regardless of previous experience it is defiantly No1. Choice for getting the best start around your sailing experience requirements.
I have completed competent crew, theory/practice day skipper and VHF courses with First Class Sailing. All were conducted to the highest standard, with excellent very experienced instructors. Easy booking online, plus friendly and efficient office support when needed. Will use First Class Sailing again.
