Training centres
Antibes

Duration
14 days
The Royal Yachting Association Yachtmaster certificate has become the industry standard qualification after the entry-level stage. It is the first formal training in navigation and seamanship that deckhands receive on their path to higher MCA issued certificates and it is a vital part of their maritime education.
The course includes: RYA Yachtmaster Coastal / Offshore Theory Course ($1495), RYA Yachtmaster Coastal / Offshore Practical Course ($2060) and the RYA Yachtmaster Coastal / Offshore Exam ($480). Taken separately the above courses would total $4035, our RYA Yachtmaster "Two Week" Package is $2999! You save $1036!

In Europe, the course fees if taken individually are RYA Yachtmaster Coastal / Offshore Theory Course 960 euros, RYA Yachtmaster Coastal / Offshore Practical Course 1700 euros and the RYA Yachtmaster Coastal / Offshore Exam including commercial endorsement is 250 euros. We also add the VHF and PPR to our package thus you make a considerable saving of 595 euros.

*For MCA OOW, Chief Mate and Master Certificates it is a requirement that this theory course is successfully completed as part of the training.

Objectives:
You will learn methods of visual and electronic navigation, charts and chart-work, calculation of tidal heights and tidal streams, meteorology, the collision avoidance rules, safety and safety equipment.

Assessment
3 written exams over the duration of the shorebased theory course and during your RYA Final Practical Assessment with a 3rd party examiner, you will complete a verbal and practical examination.


This is not a beginners course!! You will learn: Practical boat handling and navigation in our 42' training vessel, the M/V CELTIC WARRIOR, (we do not currently offer Yachtmaster Sail). You will gain practical command experience and, because of the weight of the vessel, she handles like a much larger vessel. The boat therefore provides an ideal training platform for those moving to larger yachts.

You are required to hold the VHF (SRC) GMDSS Radio Licence, Valid First Aid certificate (to have been taken within 3/5 years), Valid Personal Survival Techniques certificate, Valid ENG1, and online PPR certificate.


FINAL Practical Assessment:
You will be examined by an RYA examiner, who will test your practical ability as well as your written and verbal theoretical knowledge.

Depending on your personal experience, you may be examined for either of the two qualifications listed below after successful completion of the RYA Shore based Course.

The majority of our RYA Yachtmaster candidates want to get the theory and practical courses done in quick succession, keeping the theory fresh in the mind and applying it immediately to the practical training. The course is intense and rewards those who have prepared well so get the resources you need to start studying.
