The course provides an STCW 95 ARPA (Automatic Radar Plotting Aids) qualification. 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.
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 nav aids. In the practical element there is much emphasis on the set up and correct operation of these nav 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.
