There are 2 parts to the course. 10 days of theory followed by 5 days of practical navigation in one of our radar simulators in Biot or Palma. In Fort Lauderdale, all 15 days are taught in the same location.

The first 2 weeks of theory start from where the RYA Yachtmaster leaves off and students must be at Yachtmaster standard before attending. Several areas are examined which are not fully covered in the Yachtmaster programme, such as ARPA, chart correction, radar potting and more detailed understanding of electronic navigational aids. In the practical element there is much emphasis on the set up and correct operation of these navigational aids, good watch keeping procedures, radar plotting and radar navigation, practical rules of the road.

The Officer of the Watch Navigation and Radar module is an advanced course in yacht navigation and it is not for beginners. Students must have taken and passed their RYA Yachtmaster Offshore before attending.

Note that from January 2017, an EDH certificate must be issued 18 months prior to the issue of your OOW Certificate of Competency.

This course is free with your ONE Account.
